Imps extend Davide Somma loan deal

Flamboyant forward Davide Somma will stay with Lincoln City until the end of the season after Imps manager Chris Sutton secured a deal with his parent club Leeds today.

Somma, who initially joined from the Yorkshire club on a month-long deal, has scored five goals since arriving at Lincoln, playing a vital role in pulling the Imps away from the threat of relegation.

Despite agreeing to the extension, Leeds United have included a 24-hour recall clause in the deal, which will enable them to recall the South African if required.

The extension will come as a surprise to some onlookers who believed that United manager Simon Grayson may recall Somma to reignite Leeds’ faltering League One promotion campaign- the latest episode of which was a 2-0 home defeat to Millwall on Monday night.

Somma scored on his debut for the Imps in a 1-1 draw against Crewe Alexandra back in late February. He went on to put in a string of polished performances and formed a partnership up front with fellow loanee Drew Broughton. That partnership was broken when Broughton was recalled by Rotherham before last weekend’s game against Torquay- but that didn’t stop Somma from grabbing a brace against the Gulls.
