Leeds United are said to be lining up a loan move for Peterborough United's , centre back Gabriel Zakuani if they fail with Leicester City's Matt Mills. Neil Warnock has been quoted in the past, describing the Congolese defender as 'Solid as a rock'.

From a very reliable source.

Would prefer Zakuani TBH, much faster, stronger and younger.

I find it hard to understand why teams in our league would loan us their best players - would we send Snoddy out on loan at this stage. Matt Mills falling out with Pearson and Leicester having loads of cover at centre-back would almost be believeable but we'd probably have to pay all of his 25k per week wages any way, even if he wanted to uproot for a couple of months at the end of the season. I think we're dreaming a bit if we think either of these could come off.

Agree0 Disagree0

According to our local paper 'Leicester Mercury' on sat 24th feb, Mills to Leeds on loan is almost a cert AND we would still be paying the bulk (80%) of his wages, i dont agree with this move myself but if it is true then you Leeds have obviously pulled off a cracking bit of business, would'nt you say?

Agree0 Disagree0

I hope your local paper is right, it would be fantastic business for us.

Matt Mills goes on loan to Leeds


Has to be some truth in it. Time for some fresh faces at the back, Bromby Bruce am had enough time to prove themselves.

Agree0 Disagree0

I'm a Leeds fan living in P'Boro, not a chance of him moving. 100& WON'T HAPPEN.

Matt Mills? Is he not Leicester captain? More chance of Leeds signing Heather Mills! Would be a cracking signing if it pulls off- Matt not Heather!

Believable27 Unbelievable8

He hasn't been in Pearson's plans as of recent, and furthermore footballers have no loyalty.

Matt Mills:

Captain : Yes
Childhood Leicester fan : No
Playing regular: No

Jonny Howson:

Captain : Yes
Childhood Leeds fan: Yes
Playing regular: Yes

and still walked out the door. Joined a sub standard premier league team who have had one of those one off wonder seasons and will crash down next year.

This deal is plausible and will be once of the best signing we have made for a numerous amounts of years. Good Luck Neil hope you can get him.

MOT - against the unconstructive Bates out chants, when at games its all behind the team.

Agree0 Disagree0

We will see if bates is going to keep his word about backing niel all the way. this deal might happen as pearsons said he does not have mills in his plans MOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Agree0 Disagree0

Trouble is would you let mills go to one of your playoff rivals, simple answer, no! Pearson would not let that happen, might let him go out on loan but not to any club who could jeopardise his own plans to reach playoffs with leicester and get them promoted. Common sense will say its no go for leeds and mills. Any thoughts on that guys?

Agree0 Disagree0

Yeah, I can't see Pearson wanting to let us have him because of the league rivalry. Hopefully, we can get him in the summer, though (assuming all this about him being unwanted is true)

Agree0 Disagree0

To the second post- Norwich are. It second rate, I would happily swap the whole staff for ours from delia to lambert, Johnson to holt and I would put my house on that most Leeds fans would do too! In summery it's a stupid blinkered post! {Ed013's Note - To the person that said "Howson Joined a sub standard premier league team who have had one of those one off wonder seasons and will crash down next year" are you on this planet? Norwich have been for the last 2-3 years one of the most consistent teams around and fully deserve where they are. Howson saw a chance of an established Premier League team and went for it - Good Luck. Regarding Mills, if this happens I would - 1. be delighted to get a player of his quality at this stage of the season - 2. be very very surprised. Pearson must have learnt his lesson loaning Gradel to us!}
