Whites Set For Bakke Battle

Last updated : 22 November 2005 By Kevin Markey
The Norway international joined up with his old boss David O'Leary at Villa Park on a 3-month loan deal from Leeds but is due to return to Elland Road in January.

Bakke appears to be keen to stay on with the Premiership outfit until at least the end of the season and, according to the Sunday Mirror, hopes to make it a permanent arrangement.

But Leeds are short in midfield at the moment and Bakke has the right credentials to move the Whites into a promotion place in the Championship. Kevin Blackwell is, therefore, keen to have him back as soon as possible.
