Leeds have signed the West Bromwich striker Rob Hulse on loan for the rest of the season. The 25-year-old joined Albion from Crewe for pounds 750,000 in July 2003 but has been unable to make an impression this season as the West Midlands club struggle to stave off relegation from the Premiership. West Brom, meanwhile, have terminated the contracts of Adam Chambers, Sekou Berthe and Simon Miotto by mutual consent.

l Relegation-threatened Plymouth have completed the pounds 250,000 signing of Everton striker Nick Chadwick. The 22-year-old, who has agreed a deal until June 2008, has struggled at Goodison Park although he has been a prolific scorer for the reserves. Chadwick caught the eye of the Pilgrims manager, Bobby Williamson, as a goalscoring substitute in Everton's 3- 1 win against the Coca-Cola Championship side at Home Park in the FA Cup last month.

l Dick and Ian Campbell have become the first twins to win manager of the month awards. Dick took charge of First Division Partick Thistle in January and took them out of the relegation zone with an unbeaten run, while Ian replaced his brother at Second Division Brechin City and has kept them on course to win the title.

l FIFA plan to establish a medical research centre in response to a spate of heart-related deaths during matches, Sepp Blatter, the organisation's president, said. His comments came two days after the Slovenian goalkeeper Nedzad Botonjic collapsed and died during training.
