Leeds to sign both David Norris and Erik Huseklepp

Believable4 Unbelievable33

Why sign a player who was free at the start of the season and rejected us? what nonesense

Agree0 Disagree0

former republic of ireland u21 international barry conlon to sign at some point next week, also if snodgrass does leave then jamaican international omar daley is set to arrive from motherwell

Believable9 Unbelievable36

Barry conlon is dreadful! Omar daleys league one level! Both ex bradford city doubt leeds would be intrested in these two LRS

Agree0 Disagree0

Barry Conlon is well by his sell buy date,and played for about 12 clubs , and apart from that he's Rubbish and that's putting it politely., any more posts like this should be on the banter site.

Agree0 Disagree0

What are you talking about? someone take this guy to a doctor.

Agree0 Disagree0

They are both decent players and with the money that bates is willing to spend they are about as good as we are going to get

Agree0 Disagree0

Snoddgrass booked into Dunston Hall hotel today, (Norwich city) {Ed013's Note - Why make things up? He will be in match preparation time ready for tomorrow, not over 200 miles away}

Agree0 Disagree0

Barry conlon? Decsent player? Are you mad? He is useless, i saw him play many times for mansfield town and he was utter garbage!

Agree0 Disagree0

If they are free then they are distinct possibilities. There are quite a few empty car parking spaces and Grayson seems determined to fill em with s**te ...so they could well be on their way

Agree0 Disagree0

Complete rubbish - clearly a Bratford fan with no knowledge of football

Agree0 Disagree0

agent is from whitkirk monty.s from halton pal both in leeds 15

Believable3 Unbelievable15

Does anyone know what this gibberish is about

Agree0 Disagree0

Nick Montgomery is from Halton and his agent Masterton is from Colton

Agree0 Disagree0

His agent Masterson hates LUFC and would do any other deal rather then getting one of his players to come to us. Talked Killgallon out of coming to us on loan last year FACT !

Agree0 Disagree0

I know is agent well and that didn't happen at all regarding kilgallon leeds were never in for hm so i just wsh people would stop putting crap on this website some leeds fans are proper tits

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Jan 2012 16:14:34
Adam Clayton in talks with wigan. Fullam wolves bolton &newcastle also interested Bates will let him go for 1.5-2m

Believable29 Unbelievable25

No offence, but, Howson with 6 months left goes for 2mil. Clayton with 18 months left will not go for 1.5mil, 4.5mil and you're nearer the mark! But he is not leaving!

Agree0 Disagree0

Think he will probably go along with lees and possibly snoddy problem then would uncle ken plough the money back into new players
i think we know the answer to that

Agree0 Disagree0

Thats funny, Grayson said at the press confrence tonight that no other managers other than paul lambert have been in touch with him despite all the rumours. he said martinez, coyle and all the other managers have got my number but no one has been in touch.

Agree0 Disagree0

I'm a bit sceptical here - regardless of whether we would be prepared to sell anyone else wouldn't you expect there to at least be enquiries from other teams? Or are we seriously overrating our players?

Agree0 Disagree0

Lets be honest. is he better than v. moses when he was at palace.no'. also one m/f that could work is g. dorrans. but a big club like ours. 1 trophey in 40 years with f. all money and k . bates in charge.; is it me , or do we need to bide our time. mot, neil.

Agree0 Disagree0

Utter rubbish A.Clayton has 18 month left on his contract so can NOT speak to anyone without the Clubs permission.

Agree0 Disagree0

More lies and crap from people who no nothing

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Jan 2012 16:02:28
Hush hush sources tell me that DJ Campbell is on the way for 250k. Also a strong possibility that Norwich defender Richie De Laet, just returned to Man Utd from a loan spell at Norwich, may join until the end of the season. As I say its all very hush hush at present. I simply cannot reveal my top sources.

Believable18 Unbelievable24

Would love dj campbell to come through, proven goalscorer at this level. would turn up the heat on competition.

when is somma back? his goal to game ratio was awesome too!!

Agree0 Disagree0

Are your hush hush sources especially delighted that you've told everyone on the world wide web with an estimated target audience of just under 4.5 billion?

Agree0 Disagree0

250k for dj never they would,nt sell him for that maybe 750k {Ed003's Note - What about wages ? }

Agree0 Disagree0

Your sauce is either HP! West Indian, barbecue, or the lovely sweet chile dip that morrisons do. 7i7

Agree0 Disagree0

De laet is injured and out for the rest of the season with a back injury,

Agree0 Disagree0

Man u won't loan any players to us..ask there keeper!

Agree0 Disagree0

Your source is clearly your imagination.

All you have done is pick a couple names that have been banded around sky sports news in the last few days, then took it upon yourself to link them to leeds united.

unfortunately thats what alot of people do on this site and claim they have "sources"

pathetic!!!!!!!!

Agree0 Disagree0

Well said mate i think that lad needs to get a grip lol heard that drogba and anelka are on the move as well maybe we will get them as well .fact of the matter we need to stand united stop paying for tickets untill bates understands we dont want him MOT

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Jan 2012 15:08:54
Not a rumour Norwch fan here, Howson Agrees terms, Injury not what it seemed and will be back playing by end of month, Lambert is also putting in bid for Snoddy, Do you get the feeling Bates is relineing his pockets.

Believable22 Unbelievable14

He won't be fit until end of the month so not match fit until mid Feb - he only started bike work last week.
Lambert needs 8m for Snoddy.

Agree0 Disagree0

Norwich fan yeh right, of course you are btw he's out till March get over it

Agree0 Disagree0

His injury was and always will be what it first was, Snodgrass won't go anywhere unless you pay over 10m for him, you don't have the cash.

Agree0 Disagree0

I am not sure bates is lining his pockets I think he is 'saving' us according to his fans anyway.

Snoddy would be an excellent buy for you guys. Probably get him for about 5m

We do have a couple of others he might want to sell too, Adam Clayton is attracting interest and Lees will be a top player one day. Aidan white hasnt signed a contract either

We will be fine Peter Lorimer says they are going to reinvest in quality players..on that subject... are there any reserves you never play? you just want to be rid of from your wage bill? We have quite a few of these already but cant have too many s**te players stuck in the reserves eh . Anyway good luck for the rest of the season , you have a quality manager and decent owners. Good luck

Agree0 Disagree0

You won't ever get Snoddy, eat your hearts out...

Agree0 Disagree0

Injury not what it seems? there was no injury just a smokescreen so he wouldnt get injured for real as the deal was done weeks ago

Agree0 Disagree0

Seen him at the training ground in Colney today,no sign of any injury running round like an olympic sprinter, Leeds you have been duped LOL

Agree0 Disagree0

I like snoddy.he has heart and passion and he has flashes of quality but 8 mil, seriously where do you get your hallucinagens?

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Jan 2012 15:00:46
Sammy Clingan, Matty Paterson,Kirk Roadfoot and Gary Kenneth.

All to sign before the end of the month

Believable11 Unbelievable20

Pattison was a Norwich reject that got done for drink driving why are we going for these haz beans no other club wants them but. Seem to go for them, where has the ambition gone

Agree0 Disagree0

Who is Roadfoot? If you mean the rank rotten Rangers reserve player, then perhaps that tells you just how low Leeds are now. Kenneth is woeful, just woeful, always makes mistakes and Is actually worse than O'Dea!

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Jan 2012 14:59:30
Leeds to sign Sammy Clingan this is the reason why Delph is on loan for a month as Clingan fractured hi toe and has just recovered from it! We want him to be fit and raring when he starts!

Believable8 Unbelievable20

Im prety sure that if we was to sign delph on a 3 month loan he would not be able to play in the playoffs but after the 25th feb he can sign for another 3 months and he can play the playoffs

Agree0 Disagree0

Delph here until 25th Feb..I live in Coventry (born/raised in Leeds) Clingan played last Saturday for Coventry, well over his injury..he will still sign for Leeds next week

Agree0 Disagree0

I dont what all the fuss is with clingan is an average footballer and wouldnt add quality to leeds at all, get defence sorted and get clayton signed up asap

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Jan 2012 13:39:00
Howson agrees terms just waiting for results of medical also heard he has told Lambert to make a cheeky bid for Snodgrass and lees

Believable12 Unbelievable15

You heard that because you were involved in those talks were you?

MUPPET

Agree0 Disagree0

2 things:

1, it's common knowledge Howson has agreed terms and having medical - old news.

2, what a pathetic comment at the end of your post! agree with 1st response - the only possible way you could know this is if you were in the personal terms discussion. y waste your time with drizzle like this!

Agree0 Disagree0

Howson was leaving anyway so we have a 2 million bonus.

You ain't ever gonna get Snoddy, dream on

Agree0 Disagree0

Howson can go, like Johnson not actually that good. Snoddy is leaving Leeds but it will not be to Norwich. Snoddy wants to play in the Premiership for some time to come, not join a team likely to be relegated every season.

Agree0 Disagree0

Absaloute dross! pathetic post snoddy wont go 2 norwich unlike howson has ambitions ...

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Jan 2012 12:28:30
poulsen on loan next week to relpace the outgoing clayton and will fit in with delph in our new look midfield. clingan will not be signing until the summer when the two go back although we have to option to sign poulsen permanently. the mccormack deal is no where near completetion and my sources tell me that french player nouha dicko may be offered in exchange.

Believable7 Unbelievable28

Fit in with our new look midfield? What happens in a month when our new look midfield to back to their parent clubs? Club is a joke

Agree0 Disagree0

Forgive my ignorence ... Is that Christian Poulsen ?

Agree0 Disagree0

Yes it is christian poulsen unfortunately, should be done sometime next week, i have also heard about us going in for two bristol city players david clarkson and yannick bolasie. the lonergan rumours is not true but howson is as good as gone and mccormack is still waiting on the clubs. thats all i have for now

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Jan 2012 12:15:39
andy carrol to leeds on loan for rest of season

Believable19 Unbelievable47

Why an earth would we want another striker that cant score

Agree0 Disagree0

We already have Barndoor Billy or is it a straight swap?

Agree0 Disagree0

Oh dear, oh dear, please try to make your comments slightly plausible

Agree0 Disagree0

I thought you were looking for a goal scorer. {Ed013's Note - If Andy Carroll was to join anyone then I would imagine it would be a Premier league team, but to be honest he is being used in the Liverpool team at the minute and would you really want to send a 35 million pound player on loan!}

Agree0 Disagree0

Two words spring to mind to the guy who wrote Andy Carroll coming to Leeds: Knob & Head, may be Mr Bates can sign theses 2 on loan till the end of the season !!

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Jan 2012 12:15:20
marlon king to leeds for £450k

Believable10 Unbelievable47

If he comes I will support someone else. He should never be allowed to play in the professional league again !

Agree0 Disagree0

He did nothing the last time he was here, except miss a penalty and a host of other sitters.

Sh*te!

May have scored a few the other night but his goals rate is awful.

Agree0 Disagree0

He is no different to other criminals, served his time and should be allowed a 2nd chance

Agree0 Disagree0

Did nothing last time here cos Blackwell played him on wing!!

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Jan 2012 11:52:42
heard leeds are intersted in bringing lee 'legend' bowyer back to the club, he would certainly toughen up a soft midfield and with karl henry would rock the championship boat.

Believable7 Unbelievable41

No thanks,, just look at Ipswich for the reasons why.

Agree0 Disagree0

He doesnt want to come he made that clear last time.......also i think he burnt any bridges

Agree0 Disagree0

Karl Henry the player that gets sent off constantly and cost wolves the game yeserday now elekobi is the player you want to rock boats MOT

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Jan 2012 11:43:46
Delph now confirmed. "Initial one month loan deal".

Rumours below

Lichaj set to follow suit and join next week and Clingan is coming according to Coventry fans forums on the net.

Believable11 Unbelievable15

Wow 1 month loan deal that should really plug the gap! loan loan loan loan loan that's all we seem to get ,it's hard work being a Leeds fan these days the way our once great club is being run.

Agree0 Disagree0

Ye hopefully we keep him till the end of the season. think he has 4 weeks defo at leeds where villa cant call him back. and then if we keep him after that they are putting in place a 24 hour recall clause? either way this is a very astute signing by SG. slightly softens the blow of howson leaving?

Agree0 Disagree0

There is one reason that they brought in delph.... to appease the sale of our captain! then in 28 days when delph gets miraculously recalled (to minimise expenditure by bates on delphs wages etc) the transfer window will have shut, we wont be able to sign a replacement for delph and well get the old "we thought wed have him for longer, but im confient in our squad and i believe they can get us back to where we belong" sick of it! {Ed013's Note - Leeds sign someone and people still moan! Villa may have insisted in a recall clause after 28 days so SG doesn't want him to get recalled at a critical part of the season. I would imagine they are working to find a permanent signing before the end of the transfer window}

Agree0 Disagree0

Isn't it something to do with the way the loan time limits work? Have him for a month now and then for 93 day emergency loan?

Agree0 Disagree0

One month loan takes us to 25th of feb, emergency loan window will still be open and as the poster before states, the 93 day limit would take it to the end of the season if they allow him to resign

I presume the one month is more likely. Because they are looking to bring someone else in, my money is on clingan as he's just about to come back from injury

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Jan 2012 11:35:12
delph signed until feb 25th. source breaking news ssn

Believable15 Unbelievable3

20 Jan 2012 11:21:44
I think SG is stalling because i think he can get Clingan on the cheap. Not 100% sure but pre season he had not signed a knew contract with coventry. Can anyone shed some light on this please.

Believable12 Unbelievable3

20 Jan 2012 11:17:43
"Alex McLeish, has left the door open to a deal between Leeds and Eric Lichaj but warned that any transfer involving the right-back would include a recall clause.

Lichaj - who was on loan at Elland Road last season - is among United's targets after recovering from hip surgery.

McLeish said: "We'd consider letting Eric go on loan as well. We'll think about that one but we'll probably look for call-back rather than letting him go out until the end of the season."

Another one that we may bring back to fitness before he hightails it back to Villa.

Sorry but no good to us when at end of February we are left wanting again. Loans to end of season or not at all thank you. What are we a football club or a rehabilitation centre for Aston Villa !!

Believable17 Unbelievable1

You can only loan so many in a season, this is getting ridiculous.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Jan 2012 10:53:00
howson having medical should sign for Norwich Monday fee could be as low as £750k with add on growing to£2m

Believable14 Unbelievable12

If thats the price were getting for him we should have told them to **** off and kept him till the end of the season and risked losing him for free

Agree0 Disagree0

750.000 now if we stay up you get another 25.000, no sign of the 2mil you people are claiming. and as he isn't cup tied he could be fit to face WBA in 2 weeks time

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Jan 2012 10:40:47
I have heard that snodgrass has rejected the bid because he wants to see leeds promoted.

Believable24 Unbelievable14

Will he still be playing in 10yrs time or maybe longer.

Agree0 Disagree0

Would like to see Snoddy stay.To come on and score after having his appendix out..Need to keep onto some decent players or is Bates happy seeing Leeds stay in the Championship for the foreseeable?

Agree0 Disagree0

Of course Bates doesn't want us promoted.
He gets to charge Premiership ticket prices, we have higher average attendances that most Premiership grounds can hold these days but he has the luxury of paying Championship wages . . It's win win for Bad Santa

Agree0 Disagree0

Wasn't part of going into Admin that if we got promoted to the prem within certain amount of years that Bates had to pay more out to the creditors.

If that is the case it would explain why he's happy for us to stay in the Championship until this time has passed.

Agree0 Disagree0

Cobblers,what is your average attendance 25.000 or what

Agree0 Disagree0

27,000 last season, sadly because bates has not invested everyone stays away, 23,000 average this season and dropping.

Agree0 Disagree0

I think the credit crunch might have a slice to do with falling attendances at Leeds is actually rising since October, the average was far worse before then, and it has had a negative impact on the accounts costing Leeds over 1million to date.

Agree0 Disagree0

Bates obviously doesn't want to pay back the creditors, and at the end of the day, rightly so, it isn't HIS debt? If he can hang out till next season when (I believe) the debt is written off, then there is obviously money in the pot to spend and get promoted?

Am I naive or is this all common knowledge?

Why would Bates want to pay back millions of pounds, when he can wait till next season and spend it on a team to get promoted and earn him MILLIONS IN DOING SO?

No brainer?

Agree0 Disagree0

Snoddy is NOT joining Norwich. When he leaves Leeds, it will be to a Premiership club who view failing to get regularly into the Europa League as the worse case scenario

Agree0 Disagree0

Can anyone confirm the "expiry date" on the creditors payback ?

Agree0 Disagree0

In response to
"Can anyone confirm the "expiry date" on the creditors payback ?"

I remem reading a Guardian report online that the final agreed deal with Revenue and the other creditors was a 5mill pound payment to be shared by all creditors if Leeds got promoted to Prem League within 10 Years! The original deal was 5 but that was rejected - according to article. Beyond that I'm not sure.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Jan 2012 10:14:50
Leeds are only signing delph on loan for a month for 2 reasons.
1. To figure out if he really wants Matty pattison. And it gives them 2 weeks to still shop around.
2. To relax all Leeds fans and bide himself some time.

Hopefully that time will being in some quality...

In Grayson we trust..

Somerset White MOT

Believable12 Unbelievable8

"Simon Grayson said he would not be rushed into panic buys.

Instead, he insisted he would bide his time in bringing in “the right players” during the January transfer window."

i think this means were not buying anyone at all just like the last window when we were waiting for the right players.
Does anyone like Ken Bates?

Agree0 Disagree0

I liked Ken Bates for helping Leeds. Now he needs to go for not giving us players!!

Agree0 Disagree0

Im guessing delph as only been loaned for 1 month because if he signs for the 3 + months that are left he would not be able to play in playoffs if we reach them . now when his month loan runs out we will sign til end of playoffs if we look like we can still o it

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Jan 2012 10:10:00
I have heard from a reliable source that we will be selling Andy Lonergan to Nottingham Forest for a sum of 1.3 Million.

Believable14 Unbelievable34

Why would we sell one of our best players this season when we only bought him in the summer? And why would he go to Forest there in more of a mess than us

Agree0 Disagree0

Apparanly Forest are stony broke so how could they afford a figure like that. Steve Cotterell's own words.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Jan 2012 09:28:02
BOLTON WANDERERS could spend some of their cash windfall from the sale of Gary Cahill on Ireland U21 cap Aidan White.

The midfielder, who has scored once in his five games for the Republic's U21 side, has been in impressive form with Leeds United this season with 26 appearances, and the player has been on the radar of Bolton boss Owen Coyle for some time.

White only has 6 months remaining on his contract.

From Irish Herald.

Looks like Aidan could be next out.

Believable12 Unbelievable17

Amazing that White, Lees, Snoddy, Becchio, McCormack & Howson have all been on Owen Coyle's radar lately

Agree0 Disagree0

Yeah read that one myself and I believe it, you dont see many rumours in the herald. But I dont remember it saying he only had six months on his contract and even if he did because of his age its not like he can just walk away for nothing.

Agree0 Disagree0

I hope he does go...charlie taylor is a way better prospect and LB...white is way overrated

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Jan 2012 09:24:04
im not liking the rumour that Leicester have bidded 5m for Snodgrass

anyone heard anything?

Believable6 Unbelievable20

Its exactly that just a wild rumour with no substance started on twitter. Just another attempt to wind up Leeds fans

Agree0 Disagree0

Heard that leicester made bid also but not
5mill heard 2mill this came from a leicester
fan

Agree0 Disagree0

5 mil straight up cash! He could go for that.

If an offer like this comes along from the premiership I think he would hand in a transfer request.

I don't think many players are loyal to Leeds anymore and until he signs a new contract I just don't believe a word that comes out of a players mouth.

Agree0 Disagree0

Snoddy still has time on his contract so wont be leaving for cheap

Agree0 Disagree0

Wouldn't matter if Leicester bid 50m, Snoddy will not join them nor wish to go near the place, unless playing against them.

Agree0 Disagree0

Dont talk s**te taylor is a better prospect,he is struggling at bradford city at the moment....what we need righyt now is proven championship players not potential!what a muppet,you must be his dad or agent

Agree0 Disagree0

I heard that Snoddy has turned down Leicester and is in talks with Norwich, and I'm a Leeds fan

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Jan 2012 09:10:00
more bad news Tom lees in talks with Bolton £3.5m being touted

Believable14 Unbelievable23

Again another silly rumour. There has only been one bid made for a Leeds player and that was Howson. the rest is just wild rumour and lazy journalism e.g. Ross spotted at Wigan game with his agent - his best mate plays for Wigan and they share the same agent, he was only there to support his mate

Agree0 Disagree0

With our need for defenders if they let lees go then my season ticket goes in the bin

Agree0 Disagree0

Rubbish..... hes got about 4 years on his contract

Agree0 Disagree0

I dont know how ppl can say rubbish hes got time on his contract . if 3.5 mil was offered for lees then leeds would snap there hands off

Agree0 Disagree0

Leeds would sell anyone for a million whilst Bates is in charge

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Jan 2012 08:49:52
leeds to sign delph on loan but only for 1 month will happen today

Believable14 Unbelievable6

1 month to allow him to play this weekend, will turn into an end of season loan next week

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Jan 2012 05:58:31
Jason johnson set to sing from none league outfit on a freebie, hes said to be a pacey striker

Believable11 Unbelievable10

Whats he singing then?! Something upbeat i hope!

Agree0 Disagree0

When we get the none league players they turn out better think of charlie austin he was at a none league club and swindon sind him then leeds got beckford from a non league club and it got him to the premier league so i think we need to sign some more non league players

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Jan 2012 03:36:30
Leeds looking to push for premier league promotion with a bid for Steve Kabba we only need to sure up our defence now.

Believable10 Unbelievable26

The Steve kabba that plays for Barnet, and is a striker !!!!! really yay, he will sure up our defence for certain since he has only scored 12 goals in 2 years.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Jan 2012 03:32:06
just heard from a reliable source that Leeds are making a audacious bid for all whites star Rory Fallon would be a amazing bit of business if it comes of.

Believable6 Unbelievable21

Are you serious is this the same fallon who couldn't get in the Plymouth squad

Agree0 Disagree0

Barnsley fan hear in peace
would be a complete waste of money
nickname at barnsley male model
not good enough for championship
you probably have better youngsters

Agree0 Disagree0

Exactly I seen him play at Swindon and he was useless then and that was league 1

Agree0 Disagree0
