Leicester Tigers fly-half Ford, 18, is set to play for Leeds in their RFU Championship game against London Scottish on New Year’s Day.
Leicester Tigers director of rugby Richard Cockerill said: “George Ford is going on loan to Leeds so he can get some game time.
“He is dual-registered with Leeds, like we do with Nottingham or any of the other clubs that we do with our young players. It’s a normal process.
Diccon Edwards, the Leeds Carnegie head coach, coached Ford during the Junior World Championships in Italy this summer, where England finished runners-up to New Zealand.
Edwards said: “He has a good work ethic and is a great trainer and I believe he will continue to set high standards and inspire our squad as we head into the play-offs.”
