Martyn waghorn to join leeds on a season long loan to replace the injured david somma

Believable22 Unbelievable11

15 Jul 2011 22:43:14
Somma just tweeted out for dinner with grella ... Sharp is being lined up as grad els replacement

Believable15 Unbelievable18

If mad max is sold it will not be a striker we bring in as max is a winger/striker so we need one of them players not an out and out striker like sharpe. He is good but just not the right replacement

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Jul 2011 19:26:12
Davide Somma out for 5/6 months, maybe some substance in the Billy Sharp rumour, dont think we will spend that sort of money tho, maybe a loan on a young striker.....or maybe even Sanchez Watt who can also play in that position? {Ed046's Note - They will be numerous good players available on loan when premier league teams submit their squads

Believable24 Unbelievable6

Good point that Ed, do you reckon that maybe SG's ploy? Get some decent Prem league loanee's in? {Ed032's Note - my first comment as ed so be gentle. i think as days go by players on frees will start panicing and lower their demands. we have an advantage that players want to play for big clubs

Agree0 Disagree0

Davide top bloke and super striker
get sorted soon asap mate

Agree0 Disagree0

When pl teams submit there 25 man squads it will be same as last season. Nt many teams registered 25 players cos u dont have to register under 21s. I doubt there will be a player worth having if they arent in the 25.... (same as last season)

Agree0 Disagree0

Bring back Sanchez Watt if we can get him on loan a least hes a player we know

Agree0 Disagree0

I dont think watt is the answer not sure about him. billy sharp is proven at this level if we could get him.

Agree0 Disagree0

Sharp is not a replacement for somma ... He had been sounded out as a replacement for the imminent departed gradel

Agree0 Disagree0

I sure hope hes not out for so long maybe not our best player but he's got goals in him although sharp would be great

Agree0 Disagree0

Is everyone so desperate for Leeds to spend money that they will just pluck random names out of the hat at any given opportunity? somma would have been a bit part player at best this season, does anyone seriously believe grayson would spend 2 million on billy sharp to warm the bench? IF we spend any money it will be on defence and, definitely, midfield not up front where we have got more than enough cover, with or without somma

Agree0 Disagree0

Somma Is not out for that long at all. He will be back next week.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Jul 2011 19:12:37
Hope gradel signs a contract soon otherwise where gna av t cash in 4 million would b gd but batesy won't cough up for other decent signing clinigan would b a gd signing but need quality hope we do sign billy sharp but is there any truth in this rumour? Come on grayson bring stockdale in. Leeds till I die {Ed046's Note - there has been some rumours concerning Billy Sharp but i think the price tag will put Leeds off

Believable11 Unbelievable8

15 Jul 2011 19:40:06
aidy boothroyd coming back to leeds coaching set-up reliable source. I wonder he might be manager come december 'hmm' watch this space

Believable6 Unbelievable43

Why would a bloke who has had some success as the top dog, come back to a Tier 2 team on the coaching staff?

Agree0 Disagree0

Dont see y not? Gary mac did it... quieros did it. Di matteo done it....

Agree0 Disagree0

Aidy top bloke, very good man management qualities {Ed032's Note -

Agree0 Disagree0

Boothroyds done nothing since Watford, f.x. total dross at Colchester. He's a one-dimensional long ball merchant. Don't want him at ER.

Agree0 Disagree0

Why do idiots like you want SG gone? jog on and 'support' some other team

Quote from Finnish media:

"Alexei Eremenko Jr. was due to fly today to negotiate an agreement with Leeds United.
Airplane trip was canceled due to technical failure.

Eremenko was supposed to travel to Scotland, Edinburgh, where the English Championship outfit Leeds play against Motherwell tomorrow."

Believable19 Unbelievable11

Eremenko was supposed to already be training with the team more stupid rumours then...

Billy Sharp to sign for 2 million plus an exchange of either Paytner or Grella

Believable13 Unbelievable24

15 Jul 2011 18:43:06
According to facebook ( I know don't shoot the messenger ) Somma is out 5-6 months with achilles injury and no Emerenko linking up with Leeds to play against Motherwell

Believable18 Unbelievable4

Its on his twitter, not an achilles injury though he tore his ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) in his knee

Agree0 Disagree0

I can't blame Facebook for that I interpreted it wrong - still shocking news we have lost more players than we have gained in the last week and that's putting it mildly

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Jul 2011 17:41:54
Nothing is coming of this Smith deal, so please stop posting about it.

Believable17 Unbelievable9

The Newcastle rumours ed seems to think otherwise as the lengthy reply to a comment that they're stuck with smith suggested. Leeds are like the secret service with transfers so it may well all be a massive joke lol

Agree0 Disagree0

I think Smith is waiting for the newcastle friendly to judge the reception he gets.....

Agree0 Disagree0

The Newcastle rumours ed seems to think otherwise as the lengthy reply to a comment that they're stuck with smith suggested. Leeds are like the secret service with transfers so it may well all be a massive joke lol

Oh my your DESPERATELY grasping at straws.
If you read his post properly he wasnt giving you hope, merely stating the troubles preventing the deal taking place. If anything its more likely it wont happen deary.

Agree0 Disagree0

It wont happen, because as Geordie ed stated their are big problems in the way, all of which wont change. His wages are too high, we wont be able to afford it alone come the end of the year, the fans opinions on him arent going to change by the time the friendly comes round, and he isnt willing to drop his wages. What part of that is in any way positive or hinting that hes coming? Im thankful for the new information but it still suggests that its very unlikely to come off. Lets all move on he is someone elses problem and not ours.

Agree0 Disagree0

Grayson said he has an unwillingness to return that alone tells me he can get f***ed

Agree0 Disagree0

Why don't u stop reading them then? Don't tell people what they are allowed to post you fool

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Jul 2011 14:10:56
Rumours circulating are that QPR are interested in Max Gradel

Believable4 Unbelievable32

Another rumour about gradel what a suprise come on bates sign him up stop messing about with the east stand and give the fans what they want good players on the pitch.

Agree0 Disagree0

Warnock on Talk Sport this afternoon says the club have told him they won't be spending transfer fees, and this applies even if they sell Tarrabt. No chance of this happening.

Agree0 Disagree0

Warnock has said no transfer funds available so will not happen

Agree0 Disagree0

Ed/Everyone - what is the LUFC financial situation as of now?

Believable5 Unbelievable4

News: The Rumour Room is hotting up again. Latest links include Owen Hargreaves heading for Newcastle and Billy Sharp making the switch to Elland Road. You can rate and slate the rumours here. You can also follow me on Twitter for more transfer updates - @skysportswebed

Believable9 Unbelievable15

The rumour room....so basically just like on here lol.
Sharp won't come to Leeds cause he hates Leeds and Bates wont pay 3m for him

Agree0 Disagree0

Bates will not pay 3million for Billy Sharp FACT

Agree0 Disagree0

Why would we need Billy sharp? Especially for 3mill. Now, if we could do a straight swap for paynter that would be a different matter...

Agree0 Disagree0

Do we even want Sharp? He's overrated imho, even more so if it's a 3 Mil price tag. Bates is tighter than a duck's arse, I do not see this happening.

Agree0 Disagree0

Terrible shout Billy Sharp is a quality striker and would be a top piece of business. FACT

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Jul 2011 13:56:51
Leeds are reported to be after Clingan does this mean Leciester will bid double to what Leeds have?

Believable13 Unbelievable6

Clingan would be on the starboard bow (of midfield)....captain

Agree0 Disagree0

Leicester have never wanted Clingan - not good enough

Agree0 Disagree0

Name one player that you have thats better than snoddy, and gradel oh and becchio, you havent got what we have ha

Billy Sharp looks to be on his way to Elland Road

Believable18 Unbelievable12

Billy Sharp?? Is this the same Billy Sharp that Ipswich bid 3.25m for and got told where to go?
Can anyone see Papa Smurf shelling out that money?

Agree0 Disagree0

Part exchange paynter and other leeds rejects + cash

Agree0 Disagree0

They never rejected it, he rejected them, im guessing he wants to stay in yorkshire although i thinks its pretty much much aload of rubbish

Agree0 Disagree0

Southampton had a bid accepted however sharp didnt want to leave yorkshire

Agree0 Disagree0

Yeah thats gonna happen cos were throwing around loads a money and we dont have any strikers

Agree0 Disagree0

Possibly the most ridiculous rumour I've seen

Leeds to sign Doncaster striker Billy Sharp

Believable17 Unbelievable12

15 Jul 2011 13:07:45
Billy Sharp set to make the switch to Elland Road.

Source : Sky Sports News Website.

Believable22 Unbelievable11

Which SSN website do you read?? ive just been on and theres nothing about it....

Agree0 Disagree0

I cant see anything on the sky sports website...it just says he felt a move to saints wasnt right nothing about leeds

Agree0 Disagree0

I think ye should both wander down to specsavers its in front of ye in transfer clockwatch

Agree0 Disagree0

I agree nothing on any sky sports news website. Another wally making up stories. In any case why do we need anothe striker we have four already, scoring goals is not the problem conceding them is.

Agree0 Disagree0

On the sky sports website it quotes this rumour in their "your rumours" section nothing to do with Sky reporting it

Agree0 Disagree0

Are youthe same person who said you had an official text about smith returning yesterday?

Agree0 Disagree0

Seriously lads open yer eyes do ye actually know how to navigate the SS website. Open yer eyes it's embarassing

Agree0 Disagree0

It doesnt say that if so then send a link please

Agree0 Disagree0

He's jus a plank, take everything you hear with a pinch of salt thats what i do we get linked with everyone, id rather mc cormack and becchio than sharp anyway

Agree0 Disagree0

Billy sharp is fatter than paynter. Waste of money

Agree0 Disagree0

It says it in the "your rumours" bit Anyone can post there Sky haven't said it you moron

Agree0 Disagree0

Billy sharpe would move to leeds whith out a thought , I know this because I know the landlord at a pub where billy signed a Leeds shirt for a young lad , when bekford saga was been played out if he had gone to barcodes sharpe was ready and waiting .sadly no way bates will pay for him now .shame one off best finishers out side prem

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Jul 2011 12:58:31
Stockdale, Clingan and Eremenko to possible sign before the end of the weekend? Smith seems out of the question.

Sources: Putting 2 and 2 together, twitter and SSN

My own assumptions btw :) whatcha reckon guys?

Believable18 Unbelievable10

Don't think Clingan would be in the frame if SG was gonna sign Emerenko

Agree0 Disagree0

That's what I was thinking but then again the guy works in weird and mysterious ways :')

Agree0 Disagree0

Leeds to sign Arsenal youngster Craig Eastmond on a season-long loan

Believable16 Unbelievable9

Just fixing something that ain't broken and wasting money that could and should be been spent on players

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Jul 2011 12:09:28
Can anyone tell me what Ken Bates is doing to the east stand??

Believable8 Unbelievable9

Yes he is taking out seats for more space for boxes as he thinks he will make more money that way from hiring out boxes, im not happy cos max attendance now on 36,000 or something like that, he also i think is doing up the iterior a bit like the north east bit of the stadium with the sort of cafe things

Agree0 Disagree0

Yeh, adding further corporate boxes, lounges and speedier lifts. Oh and at a cost of 7m

Agree0 Disagree0

New exec boxes and museum at the moment. Hotel and shopping arcade in future

Agree0 Disagree0

I believe he is developing the stadium we no longer own, with club cash, by adding extra Hospitality suites in order to award more contracts to his Catering Companies? After all he's got to speculate to accumulate more, because he may unfortunately live forever

Agree0 Disagree0

It said on leeds official website a while ago.

Agree0 Disagree0

Bates is not using club money he is using his own money if it was club money we would be bankrup after all that. Also yeah we are aware we dont own the ground but someone who bates knows or is in partnership with must own the ground or why would we develop it bates is not stupid he knows what he is doing. This Manchester business man who owns it no one knows who he is so could be some one to do with bates.

Agree0 Disagree0

They are removing boxes in south stand. Capacity will increase. Only slightly. As far as i know they are upgrading as planned for 2018 world cup. So End up 50,000 capacity. My guess is they knock down the building at the back of the west stand and upgrade that like the East stand.

Agree0 Disagree0

Improvements to it ie Executive boxes etc in order to obtains more profit when he flogs it

Agree0 Disagree0

The cost is 3 million i should know i work for company doing the work

Agree0 Disagree0

You work for the company whose doing the work and they told you 3 million?? did they whisper that one

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Jul 2011 11:35:30
Leeds are looking towards three season long loans.

Armand Traore of Arsenal may well fill their left back position, Iv n Bella is an ideal replacement for Kilkenny (loan with view to permanent) and Magaye Gueye will be brought in from Everton to cover for Becchio whilst he's injured.

Believable7 Unbelievable12

But didnt Wenger recently come out and say the wont replace Clichy because they have the likes of Gibbs and Traore available?

Agree0 Disagree0

Magaye Gueye is a different position and totally different type of player to becchio

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Jul 2011 11:49:03
Max Gradel set turn down a move to the premier league for a shot at champions league with frenche league 1 side Lille.

Source: BBC Sport

Believable8 Unbelievable17

I dont think he'll leave, well i hope not

Anyway, it's not really BBC Sport, its a paper, quoted on the BBC website transfer rumours site. BBC Sport haven't even put anything about Brown signing yet, so dont expect any updates on the Leeds pages unless we sign someone BIG

Agree0 Disagree0

The article is from the newspaper and is pure conjecture, There has been no bid from Lille or Fulham and the bid from West Ham was 2.5m not 1m if the YEP is to be believed (I would trust them over the Mirror when it comes to stories coming out of Elland Road)

Also who Max would or wouldn't be willing to sign for only becomes relevant one a club has had a bid accepted by Leeds as he is under contract.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Jul 2011 11:17:22
New Coventry captain Sammy Clingan linked with surprise move to the Mighty Whites...

I don't know much of him...

Hit:
BELIEVABLE for good signing
UNBELEIVABLE if poor choice

Believable29 Unbelievable12

Very good signing not only a proven championship player but good on set pieces and can play defensive midfielder which will allow Howson to have a creative and attacking role. Would love to have him at Leeds

Joe MOT

Agree0 Disagree0

Sounds like he's worth a punt, at least we won't break the bank with him. Fed up with chasing Smith maybe? The more I hear of Clingan the more he seems like a Leeds player

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Jul 2011 11:09:14
Leeds Utd have made enquiries about Sammy Clingan of Coventry City (capt) according to sky sports what do you think ed? is he a good replacement for Kilkenny or Johnson.
{Ed008's Note - Good player for the championship, good set piece taker would fit along with Howson nicely in the middle.

Believable16 Unbelievable5

Are you having a laugh there is far better players out there than sammy clingon

Agree0 Disagree0

Clingan is a fair player at this level. We could do a lot worse in my opinion.

Agree0 Disagree0

Also if he was going abroad with fulham I'm sure he'd of said, fingers crossed

Believable5 Unbelievable7

He says he's going to Gatwick, from Belfast after last night's match obviously

Agree0 Disagree0

Twitter also suggests that his future will be a bit cleare by Sunday ( when the Leeds party are back from Scotland presumably)

Believable8 Unbelievable0

15 Jul 2011 10:27:29
that Leeds United have enquired about the availability of Coventry City captain Sammy Clingan.

The Whites are keen to bolster their midfield numbers following the summer departures of Neil Kilkenny and Bradley Johnson, although they have brought in experienced schemer Michael Brown.

The 27-year-old has one year left on his Sky Blues deal and Coventry might be willing to broker a deal this summer rather than lose his services for free at the end of the campaign.

Leeds United's assistant manager Glynn Snodin knows all about Clingan's ability having assisted Northern Ireland head coach Nigel Worthington in the summer of 2007.

Could be a decent signing but if we get him i cant see us getting smith unless he would play striker as we would then have around 5 centre mid options,

What is going on with Alan Smith, anyone really know ?

Believable6 Unbelievable8

I personally think it's a smokescreen smith has told people he'd take a wage cut but u don't think it's obviously enough for ken Bates it's like the secret service with Leeds tbh I enjoy going on here but doubt many of us can say for certain what's going on with any potential target.

Agree0 Disagree0

YEP states that the deal is unlikley with Smith stating he does not want ANY cut in wage. The current proposition means him taking a 5k cut.

Its on YEP online

Agree0 Disagree0

He is gonna sit on the bench all season at Newcastle for 60k a week..

Agree0 Disagree0

SG was unimpressed by his reaction in discussions so I think you can safely rule it out for good. The one pre-requisite of signing for us is hunger to wear the shirt

Agree0 Disagree0

Better him on the bench in newcastle than on the pitch at elland road

Agree0 Disagree0

Leeds manager Simon Grayson says he was not "over impressed" by Alan Smith's lack of motivation to join Leeds by saying he will not take a penny less than his deal at Newcastle.

Grayson admitted recently that filling the centre of his midfield was a priority for the club after Bradley Johnson and Neil Kilkenny his partnership for most of last season left Elland Road on free transfers.
United filled one vacancy by landing former Portsmouth and Sheffield United player Michael Brown on a one-year deal on Monday but Grayson is continuing to search for further recruits with the start of the Championship season on the horizon.
Smith s mooted return to Leeds United looks increasingly doubtful with the Newcastle midfielder no closer to completing a transfer to Elland Road.
Rumours that Smith was on the verge of leaving Newcastle United for Elland Road circulated on Tuesday after one prominent bookmaker slashed the odds on the move taking place.
But Leeds are understood to be no closer signing him as they were when the transfer window opened.
The Championship club have expressed a firm interest in the 30-year-old but the task of prising him away from St James Park was always riddled with complications.
Smith is earning in the region of 55,000 a week and has one year remaining on his contract on Tyneside.
Newcastle are ready to release him on a free transfer but the player is believed to be unwilling to accept any deal which forces him to take a wage cut.
The former England international would receive a vastly decreased wage at Elland Road, though Newcastle are said to be contemplating funding a portion of the salary owed to him next season to facilitate a transfer.

Agree0 Disagree0

Hahahahaha what are his supporters excuses now??
He'd bleed to play for leeds lol

Agree0 Disagree0

Back SG on this one, anyone that doesnt have a desire to play for us needs to go forth and multiply

Agree0 Disagree0

Desire and heart? what has that got to do with a 70percent wage cut on a contract agreed by newcastle for FOUR FULL YEARS id want what im owed too and if newcastle do sub his wages then all you haters wait and see

Agree0 Disagree0

Leeds United winger Max Gradel is ready to snub West Ham and Fulham, for a shot at the Champions League with Lille. Full story: Daily Mail

Believable5 Unbelievable8

Daily Fail reports it then its usually ficticious

Agree0 Disagree0

If he went abroad i would say Good Luck Max and hope he does really well. But if he went to an english team id be unhappy. I wouldnt want him to leave. I think if we did sell him, 6m would be good business. But he was ever present last year and scored 18 goals from midfield. Bound to be interest in him.

Agree0 Disagree0

Max gradel is about as near as you can get to rod wallace (1991) leeds utd should do all they can to keep him at 23 he canonly get better. anagram this leu destined for ever.

ED, what do you know about this years away kit? {Ed015's Note - same as last seasons i think}

Believable4 Unbelievable6

Away kit from last season gonna be this seasons 3rd strip. New away kit to be released black and yellow

Agree0 Disagree0

It's blue, just the same as last seasons but with with new sponsor where NetFlights were before.

Agree0 Disagree0

I have a picture of it but I carnt upload it the site don't give me option to choose a file. But it is black with yellow/gold band round sleves and the pattern on the shoulder is yellow/gold. I'm sayin yellow/gold because some say it yellow but to me it more of a gold

Agree0 Disagree0

No its not last years away kit is our 3 rd kit it happens every year .... This years away kit is due to be released and leaked pictures are black and bit of yellow

Agree0 Disagree0

Thought it was black and gold and is due to be released on 26th of july. Dont ask were i got the release date its just in my head for some reason.

Agree0 Disagree0

The blue away kit from last season becomes our 2rd, the new away shirt will be out at the start of the season rumoured to be black/yellow this will become our 2nd kit.

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Jul 2011 16:16:38
Ed who do you think will replace gradel if he goes?
I think we have plenty of good options if he goes. Sam Nunez and buy watt {Ed015's Note - no idea, aint really thought about it, but i doubt he will leave, we made him who he is, he was unknown before}

Believable5 Unbelievable2

If Grayson thought Nunez, Sam and Watt were better then Gradel, then why didnt he played them more last season, instead of him?

Agree0 Disagree0

Since when has that bothered a pro footballer? Milner, Lennon and Delph went like scalded cats when they knew they could earn much more money and play at a higher level. Max will be history if the right bid comes in and he will say how much of a wrench it is to leave leeds, but he has to think of his future and his family blah, blah, blah Ed, if you were offered a job tomorrow that tripled your wages your arse would be a blur...............

Agree0 Disagree0

I get what you are saying about why did SG not play Nunez Sam or watt last season. But the form gradel was on they did not get a chance I think Sam is a good player (fast good feet got a few goals last season) and SG has said he expects big things of Nunez this season so if he got a run in the team I feel he could do a good job

Agree0 Disagree0

It's all opinions, but Watt was a terrible player in my opinion. Nowhere near good enough for the Championship

Agree0 Disagree0

If an offer from premiership / top division team comes in Gradel will leave. Furthermore Sam isnt good enough for this level, from what i saw in all the home games and a few away games last year and neither is sanchez watt. Hopefully we will get more than we deemed was enough to let kasper grow and bring in more quality.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Jul 2011 00:05:37
the vacant midfield space, is trying to be filled by either Quinn, Montgomery, greening, m Johnson, smith or Eremenko..
my bet is the cheapest option who'll agree terms on cheap wages

Believable9 Unbelievable4

Any of them players would be welcome ed is there any truth in these? {Ed008's Note - Yeah their's interest in most of these players just now gotta decide who you want to bring in.

Agree0 Disagree0

Well Greening has already signed for a championship club for 600,000 not sure which, Alan smith is nowhere near as good as he was plus he's injury prone so i hope its not him eremenko would be a good addition havent heard anything about johnson.

Agree0 Disagree0

Totally agree, the cheapest option available would be my guess, i here they want Netto as next sponsor.

Agree0 Disagree0

Smith has refused a pay cut, and SG grayson is unimpressed with his lack of disire to return-YEP
