Leeds United are looking to sign Norwich Citys front man Simeone Jackson on a 93day loan,he is currently out of favour at norwich and looking to go out on loan to play some regular football.

Believable7 Unbelievable28

Yer can see that happening becaus we need another striker.

Agree0 Disagree0

Not a chance how's he gonna get regular football at ER..??.and to be fair he is not as good as what we already have

Agree0 Disagree0

We do not need another forward unless we are going to put one of them at centre back!!!!!!1

Agree0 Disagree0

Last thing we need is more strikers, Billys still knocking around!

Agree0 Disagree0

He is a quality striker at this level but need 3 defenders much more

Just seen on SSN-


kysports.com understands a number of Premier League clubs are tracking Leeds midfield dynamo Adam Clayton.

Clayton has enjoyed a superb start to the season at Elland Road and his performances have not gone unnoticed among several top clubs.

A host of Premier League scouts have been keeping tabs on the all-action midfielder with Stoke, Bolton and Everton all thought to be keen on him.

PLEASE CAN WE MAKE SURE HE SIGNS A FIVE YEAR EAL NOW!

Anyone know how long his current deal is (ed?). We can't have another counter productive situation where we have to sell in Jan or the summer because we haven't put him on a proper contract. Every time we sell one of these players we have to start again with the building blocks, looking for good players, rebuilding the team. If we have any ambition we have to start at least keeping our better players, rather than selling them for peanuts at the first opportunity, or because we have no choice. Fat Ken...give him a deal! {Ed001's Note - according to all the info I have, his contract expires in the summer! That surely can't be right though can it? Surely his contract wouldn't have been allowed to run down would it??}

Believable16 Unbelievable6

Contract expires in summer of 2013, proving what I've always known that the Ed knows little more than you'd find on a supporter website. Taxi for the Ed. {Ed001's Note - if you say so, but I didn't get it from a supporter's website so why don't you wind your neck in. How about you post up a link to back up your statement, as I clearly pointed out I didn't believe that my info was correct so, unlike you, I would be happy to be proven wrong.}

Agree0 Disagree0

Well Ed, i hope for all our sakes that the information is incorrect. But sadly we all know it has happened before! We should start negotiations NOW. If he shows great form until Christmas, and we then start trying to negotiate a new deal it will be twice as difficult and three times as expensive. Either that or he will run his contract down until the summer then go to the prem. This shouldn't be allowed to happen. What does Shaun Harvey get paid for if not to keep on top of these kind of issues? {Ed001's Note - players like that are the ones that need to be put onto a long term contract, I am sure that Ken Bates will see it too. After all, if he wants to get the best possible return on a sale, the length of contract makes a difference. So I wouldn't worry too much, I am sure he will get a new contract soon.}

Agree0 Disagree0

Contract Expires 2012

•Ben Parker

44 {Ed001's Note - right, this is such a good source it has Bessone at the club, didn't he leave for Swansea?}

Agree0 Disagree0

Yeah im sure we signed him on a 2 year deal, next summer it will be running out.

Agree0 Disagree0

This is very worrying - If Clayton does not get a contract and is allowed to leave I will not be attending another game until Bates and Grayson are gone! He is the only premiership player we have.

Agree0 Disagree0

This player Clayton, we should build the team around him and go forward, selling him would be a very big mistake plus a very big backward step.

Agree0 Disagree0

Bit worrying as well to see that allegedly Howson ( despite recent criticism) and White's deals run out at the end of this year. We only seem to offer 2- 2 and half year deals, except in rare cases such as Lucciano..... oh dear.

Agree0 Disagree0

Stop being so negative Clayton will be around for this season ans the next chill and let's get behind the team. MOT

Agree0 Disagree0

This is very worrying! No doubt his agent is already filling his head of exciting news about premiership clubs wanting his services. This has all the makings of a disaster story.

No doubt he will be allowed to leave on a free because his wage demands were too high! Bates will already be preparing his mud slinging speech at Clayton's disgusting wage demands and that Bates wont be held to ransom!

I don't want to believe it, but i can se him walking or being sold!

Agree0 Disagree0

Yes we need to get Clayton signed long term. However, he has been brilliant for the few games this season so far, let's hope he keeps it up. Let's be honest, despite voices earlier this season, there will be some so called fans wanting Snodgrass to go now and wishing his contract was up!

Agree0 Disagree0

Clayton under contract until 2013 (signed 3 year contract in 2010).

Players out of contract next summer (2012) are:

Summer 2012
Darren O`Dea - On loan from Celtic

Jonny Howson
