Mike Grella figured to have a good chance for playing time with Scottish club Motherwell, but now he won't have that chance.
Grella's loan from Leeds to Motherwell has been cancelled due to FIFA regulations that don't allow players to play for three clubs in one season. Grella had played for Carlisle United on loan last fall, an emergency loan neither Leeds or Motherwell believed would count against Grella, but the Scottish FA put a halt to the loan.
Grella still might be able to play for an English club on loan if he can secure a loan move before the end of the month.
Grella played just 34 minutes for Leeds at the start of the season before going on a brief loan to Carlisle United, where he played 11 matches.
