Teemu Tainio is not at AC Milan, or Ajax for that matter. He plays at the NY Red Bulls, so I can't see him coming to Leeds anytime soon. Heskey apparently is going back to Leicester as they can offer better wages. Leeds have begun negotiations with Watford for Danny Graham, the price being the stumbling block, but Leeds are hoping to setup a payment plan and will talk with Graham asap. If Graham comes in look for Paynter/Somma to be off-loaded.

A "friend" of mine has just confirmed that Titus Bramble is about to sign for leeds to strengthen a weak defence! Very reliable source!
Sorry, I meant to say very reliable BUL**HITTER!

Confirmed, Snodgrass is leaving and Alan Smith the fans favourite will not be coming back.
Snoddy's Newcastle bound so i'm led to believe, and the club can't afford Smithy's wages.

i'm well connected to the club and have asked a few of my contacts who they know will be leaving and who will be joining.

Leaving - obviously the stories have come out about naylor and higgs but it seems Kilkenny is stalling on contract as he believes he's Premiership quality (can't see if myself).

Snoddy isn't going anywhere and the same applies to Becchio, Gradel, Nunez and Howson.

Schmeichel on the other hand, well. . . it's rumoured that 3 premiership teams have already made enquiries and a fee of artound 5 - 6 million has been bounced around. Leeds will accept this and get Westwood on free I've been told.

Ins:

Westwood (free)
Southern (definite as wanted to join Jan 11)
Pratley - wanted to join us before
Danns (between us, Watford and Burnley apparently)
Shorey (lad is tempted and knows he'd get first team football as Parker inj prone)
Lichaj is a maybe too however his performances have done him world of good for Villa to notice.

Not joining:

Danny Graham -Leeds can't afford £2m asking price

Naughton - going to Leicester apparently

Smith - joining southern team in the next month we've been told. Leeds made enquiry but Smith's wages are big problem

Marlon King - has already rejected Leeds as feels competition too great. McCormack and Becchio to be front two with Somma being 3rd choice.

Watt - won't return due to not playing as many games as he'd had hoped. Similar story to Bannan's will come out soon they reckon.

Woody - way too injury prone!

TO THE CHANCER THAT POSTED THIS, IS THAT THE SAME TEEMU TAINIO THAT HAS JUST SIGNED FOR AC MILAN, POST REAL RUMOURS PLEASE NOT YOUR WISHLIST FROM FIFA 11 THANK YOU.11 May 2011

{Ed002's Note - Please switch your caps lock off and sadly I need to tell you that your post is nonsense. Tainio has not agreed to move to AC Milan, but Taiwo has.}

So here what I know, NO deals are done as yet but there are a lot irons in the fire so to speak.

Kilkenny & Johnson have been offered very similar contracts as they were late last year, Leeds do not expect them to sign.

The transfer mantra is to improve on what we have,

Michael Johnson/ his agent has been in talks with the club to come in as a replacement for Kilkenny,
Keith Southern & David Norris are in talks to replace Johnson,

Wages have already been a stumbling block earlier in discussions with Michael Johnson's & David Norris' representatives.

Max Kruse is to be offered a trial and as usual there will be numerous trialers come through Thorpe Arch.

We've had scouts looking at Keith Fahey & Stuart Parnaby from Birmingham.

Players that have been watched/ Mentioned in early discussions/ Shortlisted, all have been watched this season playing in Holland.

Luigi Bruins - Feeynoord
Jan Kromkamp - PSV
Slobodan Rajkovic - Chelsea
Nemanja Matic - Chelsea
Niki Zimling - Udinese
Nacer Barazite - Arsenal
Roland Bergkamp - Excelsior Rotterdam
Teemu Tainio - Ajax

There are plenty more names on the list but these are the only ones i could find out, some good players there none the less hopefully a couple can come off! {E
