My old man's mate works with football agent who mainly works with premier league clubs. He told me that Millwall have approached Tottenham about taking Harry Kane on a season long loan next season as he has been impressive there this season. He also told me Harry Kane was unsure about going out on loan at all and might look into moving to a club on a permanent basis. Depending on how Harry Kane values himself as a footballer, it wouldn't be a bad move for Leeds.

Believable8 Unbelievable23

Well thats bull because agents are blood sucking leeches and wouldnt limit themselves to only premier league clubs and wouldnt harry kanes agent be sorting that not just some unknown random agent??

Agree0 Disagree0

My dads Mates sisters friends husband, went to football game once, apprentley Ronaldo wants to come to leeds, what are the chances... Pointless feed

Joel Ward close to finalising a deal with Leeds United however Ipswich and Leicester are looking to hijack the deal.

In Neil Warnocks last interview he said that he would mainly be bringing in young hungry players who can increase in value. So following Pearce
(24) expext Joel Wad (22) and Stephen Henderson
(24) to be the next players in at ER. I live in
Bristol and Henderson is quality and should never have left, only because David James was brought in he did.
All these are tall powerfull quick players in
which NW looks for. Things are starting to look good!

Believable19 Unbelievable7

Just to let you know... henderson is on loan at west ham and will sign a permanent deal at the end of it

Agree0 Disagree0

West ham paid good money for him that's why pompey let him go so quick

Current Rumours for players in:
Jason Pearce - Done
Joel Ward - Very likely he will sign in next few days.
Greg Halford - has been linked
Paul Green - has been linked, probably will happen
Sammy Clingan - has been linked
George Boyd - has been linked, enquiry has taken place
Paddy Kenny - has been linked becuase of Warnock's relations at QPR
Clint Hill - Same as above
Sean Derry - same as above
DJ Campbell - same as above
Jermaine Beckford - rumours have been circulating
Matt Mills - rumours have been circulating but probably won't happen

Current rumours for players out:
Adam Clayton - has been linked with Leicester
Aidy White - Linked with championship and premier league teams (not bothered if he goes or not)
Billy Paynter - Linked with Swindon, Charlton.

Believable47 Unbelievable7

Ken says no signings before August so the next few days is doubtful.

Agree0 Disagree0

Clingan got released by coventry, why would we want him?

Agree0 Disagree0

Clingan released because he wouldn't sign a new deal, a bit like beckford, johnson, kilkenny etc. Doesn't make him s**t. But he isn't that good, better than what we've got but not as good as some realistic options we've been linked with.

Agree0 Disagree0

Aidy White & Adam Clayton, both gonna mature into great players in my eyes. If we are looking to build a young team then we should be making an effort to keep these two - just saying. Ps, sick of hearing about Clingan - he's f**king rhubarb!

Agree0 Disagree0

My concern with this list of players are, some were relegated last season so may not be good enough for the step up we need. Some although played at this level are unproven or unsucessful in the premiership and others are old or not good enough for the premiership, so even if we do go up we would have off load them as if they didn't cut it this season in the premiership so why would they cut it with us next?

Agree0 Disagree0

Please not beckford. dont want the whole budget wasted on one moody player who only turns up when it suits him. just my opinion but would rather have three decent players for that salary than one player that bottles it when things dont go his way.

Agree0 Disagree0

Im sorry but what do people see in clingan? hes no way good enough for our squad, we should look at other targets!

Agree0 Disagree0

It appears Q.P.R. are a caring club. Rather than put players into care homes they will let them join lufc. NO WAY do we need that lot of has beens, get some young enthusiatic players who want to prove themselves not the kind who need a pension fund.!

Agree0 Disagree0

10 May 2012 18:38:46
It's been Tweeted that there is a deal nearly complete for Clayton to move to Leicester. Only source is Twitter so don't shoot the messenger {Ed037's Note - Link to the tweet?}

Believable18 Unbelievable18

Adam Clayton I on holiday at the moment mate, he tweeted.

Agree0 Disagree0

Don't think Ur following the real Clayton lad

Tweet by LCFC News (@footie_Insider) 2 hrs ago said LCFC are close to agreeing a deal. Perhaps this is what above poster has seen.

Just had a text from a very reliable source that Robert Snodgrass has signed his new contract offered to him by Leeds United.

Believable30 Unbelievable40

Snodgrass has said he wont sign until they report back for pre-season and he wants to monitor the signings, not a chance on hell Snodgrass will sign before mid July.

Agree0 Disagree0

It will be confirmed in July but he's signed now

Agree0 Disagree0

If he signed it now they would confirm it straight away. dont be stupid. also, warnock has said he wants snoddy to sign before the end of may 'ideally'

Agree0 Disagree0

10 May 2012 18:19:18
Anyone think we should go in for adomah at bristol city him and snoddy on either wing would run rings round most full backs in this league? Mot {Ed037's Note - Please refrain from posting the same rumour twice}

Believable20 Unbelievable4

I would put snod in cam and let him play out side the box a bit more

A friend who works for Peterborough text yesterday to say the George Boyd inquiry was made by Warnock yesterday. Didn't say if they accepted, how much or for how many years but the enquiry is defo.

Leeds to sign former coventry captain sammy clingan the deal is to be announced from the 1st of july mot 4 ever?

Believable16 Unbelievable26

Why would we want someone that got released from coventry?

Agree0 Disagree0

Why announce it on the 1st july he is a free agent now so we don't have to wait until then to sign him?. Unless you know something that says it can not be announced before then.

Agree0 Disagree0

10 May 2012 18:04:28
Leeds to sign former brighton midfielder alan navarro who was released by the seagulls last week the sort of player we need in the middle of the park!

Is this true ed?
Leeds look to secure the signing of Rangers duo Papac and Jamie Ness.

Believable8 Unbelievable30

We don't want papac. He is old and slow. Ness would be a good signing.

Agree0 Disagree0

10 May 2012 17:22:04
Sammy clingan has been released by Coventry - source sky sports news. gotta be worth a shout for leeds CM? played for a side that got relegated so he knows how to dig in and give 110% every game. will play for the shirt. personally think he is better than paul green

Believable20 Unbelievable13

10 May 2012 16:18:47
Any news on any signings yet? {Ed037's Note - Only Pearce is confirmed, lots of rumours about Ward and Beckford though}

Believable35 Unbelievable1

What is the best website for these COMFIRMED transfers ed? {Ed037's Note - Sky Sports or the Leeds website, everything else is just speculation}

Agree0 Disagree0

Still havn't seen any confirmation on Beckford being transfer listed, any links?

Agree0 Disagree0

Its not really a link but my mates son went to Elland road to play a 7 aside tournament and NW was their and according to my mate Jermaine beckford and NW were on the phone after NW came out saying Iam on The phone with JB

Agree0 Disagree0

Are you sure it was JB? It could have been Aston or even Marvin? Don't shoot me, my girlfriend told me the JLS members names!

Agree0 Disagree0

Jb that could mean jeremy beadle i know he is dead but at least he could not sell his soul and leave us in the lurch. for me we are better off without mercenry beckford sulks too much id rather have brolin lol

Source/Sky sports. Leeds have signed Joel ward for and undisclosed fee and will be announced Saturday.

Believable36 Unbelievable17

Nothing on skysports about it, so please, could you go take a look in the mirror, a good long look, and do you know what you will see? an incredibely sad person with way too much time on their hands, pathetic {Ed037's Note - I agree, but he did say it was to be announced on Sat}

Agree0 Disagree0

Nope - cant see it on their website and its not on the telly yet.

Agree0 Disagree0

He did indeed say it was to be announced Saturday, but before that he said his source is skysports, and there is absolutely nothing about it either on the tv or website, so I won't be getting my hopes up {Ed037's Note - Ok, would be a good signing though, i hope this is true}

Agree0 Disagree0

It is true, Joel ward is my cousin and it is supposed to be announced sat, trust me. Warnock doesnt want to announce anything due to Bates issues. {Ed037's Note - Proof of identity please ;)}

Agree0 Disagree0

To be fair i hope he does sign, another potentially quality young lad on a long term contract. Lees, Pearce, and Ward.
Add Matt Mills and we're talking best & youngest defence (hopefully) in the league!

Agree0 Disagree0

Told you guys before, Pearce was told by warnock that we are doing our utmost to get Joel Ward and keep snoddy.

Agree0 Disagree0

Thats funny because im wards agent and lover and I know nothing of such a deal???

Agree0 Disagree0

Could it possibly be true that Joel is two timing me with his agent !

Agree0 Disagree0

10 May 2012 09:42:41
Leeds look to secure the signing of Rangers duo Papac and Jamie Ness. Papac can add stability to a leaky inconsistent defence. Jamie Ness is the type of player NW has described he wants to sign up and bring to ER.

Believable7 Unbelievable21

Apparently we're winning the race for Portsmouth's Joel Ward. Would be good to beat Ipswich to another player.

Believable31 Unbelievable5

10 May 2012 07:22:56
i was the the person who said about joel ward speaking to warnock also said he wanted to sign as pearce is there , appleton said they are two peas in a pod and when one follows the other does . ward will also be on 4 year contract and fee is 500k , david norris will also be speaking to warnock

Believable22 Unbelievable5

Good for you mate, we can safely ignore all other rumours now as you're the man in the Know.

Agree0 Disagree0

I said i said i said, as most of these posts are anonymous why put drivel like that

Agree0 Disagree0

You seem to know everything, you do. That must be so wonderful.

Agree0 Disagree0

I agree that hes probably on his way, i reckon for a bit cheaper though

Agree0 Disagree0

10 May 2012 07:13:24
Leeds looking at both Ryan hall from southend united and Damien Johnson from Plymouth. Hall has impressed over the past few seasons and tops the assists charts in lower divisions. NW wants a tough tackling no nonsense center mid and thinks the experienced Johnson fits the bill after the northern Irish international wants to remain in Yorkshire after consecutive loan spells at huddersfield town.

Believable5 Unbelievable15

Utter crap about johnson, as a northern ireland fan firstly I know he is retired from international football and secondly he's done, not a patch on what he used to be

Agree0 Disagree0

10 May 2012 06:46:56
I really don't think el hadj diouf is a good signing like I have heard he is far too much trouble, and beckford would be great although don't think will happen think we should look for a decent young CM and ST but I have faith in warnOck to deliver
MOT

Believable21 Unbelievable12

I don't care if he fires us to promotion, and i don't think anyone one will

Agree0 Disagree0

I don't care that he goes round spitting at other players as long as he doesn't get sent off and plays at his best for us if we sign him. hes a good attacking player that will score goals we need a bit of aggression in our soft team .

Agree0 Disagree0

At Doncaster diouf trained on a fri and played on Saturday didn't turn up for the rest source dads mate son played at rb/lb for donny forgot his name bth if he gets us promoted I would not care

Agree0 Disagree0

We've got a decent young CM, Adam Clayton - can someone tell me why he's been transfer listed, is it because of his wage demands? I think we should be trying to keep hold of him. {Ed013's Note - His agent thinks he should be getting a pay rise from 2,000 to 15,000. Adam wants to stay but the agents are too involved and greedy}

Agree0 Disagree0

Daily Mail reckons we are winning the race to sign Joel Ward from Portsmouth. Rumour of George Boyd is gaining a bit of momentum. Young hungry players. positive steps for Leeds United MOT

Leeds Reported to Be Winning Chase for Ward
Wed 09th May 2012 23:16
Leeds United are reported to be close to beating the Blues to the signature of Portsmouth’s Joel Ward. Town have been targeting the 22-year-old since January when a fee was agreed for Ward and keeper Stephen Henderson on the final day of the transfer window but the moves broke down over personal terms.

Believable22 Unbelievable1

Two top up and coming defenders mate. Better than what we had. I would like tonpoint out that without the ten point deduction portsmouth would not have been relegated plus they had the seventh best defence in division. Take the best players because of the situation remind you of a team that that happened too?

Agree0 Disagree0

The rumours for Joel Ward seem to be picking up some pace. I've read a few websites quoting 250k to 500k.

If we get Ward ill be over the moon.

Would be another great signing.

Agree0 Disagree0

Do we really need half the defence of a team that was relegated this year?
I know the points deduction didnt help but they were still a good 3 points off relegation zone even before that!

Agree0 Disagree0

I have looked a bit more into this and on one Ipswich forum a lot of their fans have resigned themselves to the fact that he is more likely to join Leeds than Town. He is best mates with Pearce and to quote Appleton 'they are like 2 peas in a pod, where one goes the other follows'. I really hope he does join Pearce cos he is decent

Agree0 Disagree0

To all the people saying that because Pompey went down we shouldnt sign them - Jarvis, Fletcher, Yakubu and Hoilett have all been relegated with their clubs but Im sure pleanty of Prem clubs will be after them, they aren't poor premier league players. Just because a team goes down doesnt automatically mean their players are all awful and Pearce and Ward have been their two best this season.

Agree0 Disagree0

Portsmouth conceded 59 goals which is exactly the same as Blackpool who may get promoted.

Agree0 Disagree0

What websites did you see these Joel wards rumors on?

Agree0 Disagree0

You can google it haha that is how big it has got

Agree0 Disagree0

09 May 2012 23:58:59
Looks like Leeds have won the Chase for joel ward! We may as well be called Portsmouth fc

Believable23 Unbelievable4

Not really. Two players from Portsmouth out of about 20 doesn't really equal being called Portsmouth.

Agree0 Disagree0

Yea we've signed two of their players lets call ourselves Portsmouth fc. doh!

Agree0 Disagree0

Are you serious? Your talking as though we bought the whole team. This could be the 2nd player and he is a promising player whos young and we are actually beating other teams to signatures so am all for it even if it is same club!

Agree0 Disagree0

I think he is a good player and only 22 he can only get better moving to leeds would do that

Agree0 Disagree0

So what? i'd probably take Norris, Halford and Varney too given the chance!

Agree0 Disagree0

Ward and Pearce would both be excellent signings....I would be fairly pleased with Norris but would rather not Varney. Hes been poor since his injury and there are better, affordable players out there

Agree0 Disagree0

There is a team in the premier league right now called Leeds united,they used to be known as Norwich city but changed names after taking some players from us

Agree0 Disagree0

Following your pathetic theory maybe Norwich should call themselves Leeds! You muppet!!

Agree0 Disagree0

What a numpty, I think it's good that we can take advantage of Portsmouth's situation & sign some decent players from them. We got took to the cleaners with the price of our players when we fell from the top flight!

Agree0 Disagree0

09 May 2012 23:24:15
aidy white is so over rated he's a half decent left back with pace, if he don't wanna sign he can sit in reserves at a prem team would more than welcome the compensation for him

Believable26 Unbelievable5

Why would he sit in reserves ?

He's free to leave...

Whichever club signs him will have to pay compo of about £3.50

Agree0 Disagree0

Got to agree, we'd get 1.5 million compensation as well, he's decent but not that good

Agree0 Disagree0

Aidy White, Robbie Brady and Gavin Gunning are the 3best players in the rep of Ireland U21s and will all be future full Internationals, Aidy has been outstanding since he came into the Irish team. RoI manager Noel King.
You guys wouldn't know a decent footballer if you were tackled by one. There is a section of leeds fans who don't know much about football but simply support the team because its where they are from and if a player shows signs that he may leave all of a sudden he is not good enough anyway. The lad wont be sitting in the reserves anywhere except in your mind.

Agree0 Disagree0

Very over-rated in my opinion. Don't care either way if he goes.

Agree0 Disagree0

If he is over-rated why was he offered a new contract, Warnock knows ALOT more about defending than any of the fans FACT

Agree0 Disagree0

I think Leeds should sign Dean Lewington as a replacement for Aidy White

Agree0 Disagree0
