Manchester United's Tomasz Kuszczak has revealed that Sir Alex Ferguson blocked a loan move to Leeds United this week.

Tomasz Kuszczak: No Leeds switch

Kuszczak is out of the first-team picture at Old Trafford and Leeds were looking for a new number one this week after Paul Rachubka's poor display against Blackpool saw him replaced at half time.

Leeds made an approach but, according to Kuszczak, Ferguson blocked the move.

He instead claims that possible deals to Doncaster and Sheffield United are the only moves United will sanction.

"My loan to Leeds was not possible because Alex Ferguson has blocked it," he told Onet.

"I could only go to Sheffield United, or to Doncaster."
