LUFC Leeds duo enjoying trial
Young Leeds United duo Sanchez Payne and Will Hatfield could be set to join Lincoln City on loan in January.
The duo are training with the Blue Square conference club with Lincoln boss David Holdsworth yet to make a decision on the pair.
Speaking in the Lincolnshire Echo, Holdsworth said, 'We have taken on a couple of trialists from Leeds with a view to possible loan signings.
'One is Sanchez Payne and another is Will Hatfield.
'I am grateful to Leeds for their assistance and we will see where that progresses.'
18-year-old Payne has been involved with the under 18`s in the FA Premier Academy League this season, making two appearances.
The youngster joined Leeds when he was just 12 year old and he has come through the Leeds academy
The midfielder made his debut for the reserves at just 15 year old.
He made 23 appearances for the under 18 side last season, netting twice.
He also made four appearances for the reserves side.
20-year-old Hatfield is another product of the Leeds United academy having first signed for the club as an 8 year old.
He is yet to feature for the first team although he was an unused substitute in the FA Cup tie with Tottenham Hotspur at Elland Road in 2010.
Hatfield was the Leeds captain when they captured the reserve league title in 2010.
The attacking midfielder started 2011 on loan at York City, where he made four appearances.
He joined League Two side Accrington Stanley on loan in October.
Stanley extended the loan deal until the end of December after his initial month on loan finished in November.
Hatfield made four appearances with Stanley.
Lincoln have a long injury list at Sincil Bank at the moment and it could be a good chance for the pair to get some first team football.
I am sure the Imps fans will be hoping the pair can make a similar impact to the last Leeds player to join them on loan.
Davide Somma netted nine times in just fourteen appearances during a loan spell towards the end of the 2009/10 season, helping Lincoln move clear of the relegation zone.
