Another loan to buy agreed - youngster Dario Vittorio Meadows of Roma - highly rated 17 year old.

signing an 18yr old from roma still coming in so we need to off load some.

Yes can also play in defence as well as midfield, also looking at another c/ b in post below .
Monk don't rate Bamba then?

Agree0 Disagree1

25 Aug 2016 18:51:14
Strange one this to me. 18 year old midfielder on loan? What we need if anything in midfield is experience. Why sign someone to play in the reserves or sit on the bench. We've got enough youth in midfield. Roofe, Mowatt, Kalvin Phillips, Grimes.

The quote " you won't win anything with kids" springs to mind and we know how that turned out.

26 Aug 2016 00:26:13
Meadows (17 not 18 like a lot of sites seem to think) is a highly rated attacking mid that Monk is bringing in for the U18/ U23 sides not the first team. Seems less a loan and more a prolonged trial and I'm guessing he wants someone as a potential future replacement for Hernandez rather than as a full back, which he can play but not natural. Doubting this will have any effect on the first team but nice to see Monk bringing in a couple of future prospects.

Don't buy a word of this story.

Agree1 Disagree1

26 Aug 2016 14:13:17
Why not if he's for the under23 then at least he's thinking long term
And any way who said we have grimes for midfield dame the lads played 2 games and what I've seen he wouldn't lace any of my kids teams boots up he's that awful signing we alway make imo

We need 1-2 more for first team but for once our bench is starting to fill with players that may chance a game which is something we've lacked for a while.

Monk interested in Den Haag centre back Tom Beugelsdijk. Big lad who Monk thinks will be perfect for the Championship. Bit of a cult player apparently.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

25 Aug 2016 13:46:26
yes if he came then 2c/ b at 6ft 5inch . ideal for corners at both ends.

Agree0 Disagree2

25 Aug 2016 18:36:03
Cult player, CB, tall, dutch. If he turns out to be half as good as Terminator Bob then I'll have his babies!

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Aug 2016 18:48:53
He's a very slow cb so I hope we don't sign him.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Aug 2016 00:32:58
Height and power of a Beugelsdijk + Jansson central pairing with Bridcutt buzzing around in front of them could make a very tidy defensive unit. Would let us dominate corners/ crosses and give the full backs a little more license to get forward.

Lucas! Glad predictive text didn't mess up on your first word! 😂.

Just cut and pasted this from a Leeds group on Face Ache. Hope there's a bit of mileage in this story as we could end up potentially £5m better off and with just as good a player.

"Just had a conversation with a mate of mine who is a steward with Walsall FC. He tells me a Rep from Leeds has been to every home and away game this season. No info as to why but I can only presume (and hope) it's to watch Rico Henry, their left-back who, for me, is probably the top left-back outside the top 2 divisions. Rated at 2 million apparently. Only speculating of course. "

It's fairly obvious we're interested in him. Once Forest game out of way, the speculation is bound to increase as we near the end of the window.

Agree2 Disagree0

24 Aug 2016 21:33:33
I don't see how it's fairly obvious George. We were linked with him weeks ago but then nothing been said since. I'm hoping this is a good thing and we get a bid in for him asap before another team sign him up.

MM.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Aug 2016 02:50:09
Dont see as its possible to be watching him right now as Rico Henry is out injured with a dislocated shoulder- is definately a star of the future though.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Aug 2016 03:22:19
MM

Nothing really could get said since we won't buy Henry until it's clear Taylor is going and those negotiations are delicately poised. I believe we've seen the last of Taylor at ER and he will wave goodbye to fans at City Ground on Saturday.

It's exciting to be a Leeds fan again.

Agree3 Disagree0

25 Aug 2016 11:45:32
Probably right George and I suppose if we had already signed Henry other clubs would know our intentions but am slightly worried that we might miss out on this one. Hope not and your right, good time to be a Leeds fan. What a difference a couple of games makes. We were doomed a couple of weeks back! lol

MM.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Aug 2016 00:43:16
Am I the only one not too excited about potentially signing Henry? We seem to have had the Arsenal mentality of 'Well we have great young players and we will be good in a few years' for a while now. that's fine for them but we can't compete and keep any stand out youngsters. Would much rather see a senior, proven player in instead. Get up, then buy for the future.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Aug 2016 18:02:23
Am hearing the name Didac Vila's as a possible replacement for Charlie Taylor who in my opinion should be sold now as this has dragged on too long and is not doing anything for the club. I heard pepe clotet knows him well and could persuade him to come, he's been around Italy and the Spanish leagues and sounds experienced.

Believable0 Unbelievable2

23 Aug 2016 21:14:40
Nah, tyler denton by the sound of it. having a corking game.

Agree0 Disagree1

24 Aug 2016 09:28:51
Charlie Taylor looked a lot better at Wednesday and we have a week to sell him and get someone else in. That will be tough.

Denton has now played a game against Luton and scored. I'm not 100% on whether he is Championship class yet but clearly has potential.

Anyone know anything about the weirdness that was Verboom had signed?

Agree0 Disagree1

22 Aug 2016 12:00:39
We are after Bassong from Norwich. Obviously to replace Bamba. Good move. Let's hope we pull it off.

Believable4 Unbelievable0

22 Aug 2016 15:17:45
Dunno much about him George but you seem pleased so i, ll take your word for it.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Aug 2016 19:04:22
He'll be better than Bambi although sadly Bassong has been relegated a record 6 times in his career. Still a defender I rate higher than Bamba.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Aug 2016 20:58:36
You seen him play much then George? I've only seen him on MOTD a few times and once live so hard to judge.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Aug 2016 22:25:47
Not a great deal Corky but from my research he'd be a good fit. He's slightly younger than Bamba with over 100 PL games in his locker. I believe he'd be a decent acquisition as 4th choice central defender.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Aug 2016 22:51:33
Saw a decent amount of him during his Newcastle and Spurs days. My big worry is that although he was good at Newcastle and initially for Spurs he started to make a lot of silly mistakes towards the end and they moved him on. Since then he has been a championship level player with a lot of relagations on his CV. doesn't strike me as someone that will oust our better CBs so why waste the money? don't see the point of a signing unless they push someone out of the starting lineup all this would do is drop Bamba from 4th to 5th choice.
Adrian Marriapa and Chris Samba are both still available for free and for me both better quality imo.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Aug 2016 08:47:37
Gummie is right there was a period where he went all Anton Ferdinand with a bit of a shocker over the course of a few games from Norwich which led to him being left out for quite a while.

On his return he was scoring goals and looked a lot more solid. Maybe this is down to fitness, concentration levels usually dip when not fit enough so under Monk this may not be a problem given his tactic with Dallas and not rushing Jansson into the team.

I'm not sure the deal will get done unless they already have a buyer for Bamba.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Aug 2016 16:44:24
He can definitely play a big role at Leeds, no way would be be 4th choice cb lol he would be starting along side cooper or Bartley imo. He makes mistakes like all our defence has made but given a chance he would be a very good signing but his wages would be high so I guess Bamba would have to leave.

Agree1 Disagree0

23 Aug 2016 23:36:17
Swadlad, you said Jansson would be better than anyone we have if he joined, now, that Bassong would be in the mix with Cooper and Bartley but makes mistakes. That means Jansson no1, Cooper, Bartley and Bassong joint 2-4 So yeah that does make him 4th choice pretty much, unless one of the other two starts to mess up.

Agree0 Disagree1

24 Aug 2016 00:22:35
Cracking riposte Gummie. I noticed that too.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Aug 2016 17:16:28
Yes I said jansson is better than the defenders we have but I would say bassong would be 3rd choice n I'd have jansson n cooper as the main 2 n Bartley as 4th choice. What I'm saying is that if we sign bassong then any of the 4 would start depending on how well they train before the match. Jansson will need paying for if he plays more than 20 games so the others would get a chance. For me there is very little difference in quality between cooper, Bartley and bassong, I think they are all top half championship defenders. Jansson is a step above them 3 imo.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Aug 2016 18:47:54
Swad

You change your mind a lot! Lmao.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Aug 2016 18:57:46
Lol no I just don't agree with him saying bassong would be 4th choice as I believe cooper, Bartley and bassong are all at the same quality with jansson a step above all of them 3. So I believe if bassong signs then he would get quite a few games especially with the 20 games thing with jansson.

Audible jail on the grape vine. Central midfielder playing in Belgium but is a south African international. Any views?

{Ed001's Note - sorry what?}

Guessing you mean Andile Jali, you had a few Sunday pints before posting Martyn?
Similar player to Bridcutt so not sure we need him if we stick with the 4-4-2 but the pair could make a very solid heart to a 4-2-3-1.

22 Aug 2016 10:11:33
Haha, predictive text at work there me thinks Martyn_g.

James Husband on loan from Middlesbrough to replace Taylor.

And you heard this where?

Agree1 Disagree0

21 Aug 2016 21:13:40
They'd be mad. He's an exceptional producer. And friend is getting on (28 - I think) and what with young, English players commanding higher fees, someone like husband will be with around 11 million, I reckon.

Agree0 Disagree1

18 Aug 2016 13:52:06
Jansson is now a done deal on season long loan with option to buy automatically triggered if he plays 20 games for us.

Believable2 Unbelievable1

18 Aug 2016 16:46:35
That'll be 19 games he'll play for us then!

Agree0 Disagree1

18 Aug 2016 17:32:00
I believe such brinkmanship now a thing of the past gentlemen. Wouldn't surprise me if he plays 35 league games.

Agree1 Disagree2

18 Aug 2016 19:53:34
Hopefully He won't be awesome for 19 games, get the contract then do a Bamba.

Agree3 Disagree0

19 Aug 2016 13:41:54
not for 3.5mil.

Agree0 Disagree1

20 Aug 2016 10:18:22
yes but you can only buy in transfer window . it means option to buy once he has playe 20 games not you have to buy.

{Ed001's Note - you can complete a loan to buy outside of the transfer window. I mean if the player is already on loan, you can complete the buy to make it a permanent deal outside of a transfer window.}

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Aug 2016 06:28:28
Wasn't aware of that.
Thanks.

coming out murphy and diagouraga told to leave in next two weeks.

Believable3 Unbelievable3

18 Aug 2016 12:46:37
Think Murphy can leave he's had plenty of chances imo diagouraga how ever I did like last year and I just don't think monk as really looked at.

Agree1 Disagree0

18 Aug 2016 17:34:31
I think with Murphy he's going because he isn't good enough. League One is his level. With Diagonal man, he is good enough but doesn't fit into Monk style of play. Should see Kalvin P get lot more game time.

Agree4 Disagree1

18 Aug 2016 18:03:01
By the performance toumani gave when he last played I would agree he needs to leave, Murphy however is a mistake imo.

Agree3 Disagree4

18 Aug 2016 18:29:19
Sort of agree with swadlad. I had big hopes for Murphy when he 1st came thought he could/ would kick on! However he hasn't BUT however since he arrived. how many managers etc etc. and another however (ha) under a stable club/ manager (coach) / team hopefully will finally become the midfielder I think he could be! I say keep for now!
