Man City to let Milner sign on loan until January. Midfield opportunities limited after recent signings. Milner will only be allowed to sign for a championship side and he has said he wants to sign for Leeds. Come on Papa Smurf, make it happen!

Believable4 Unbelievable17

How long did it take you to dream up this one?!?

Agree0 Disagree0

What sort of idiots post things on here, milner is an international player why would he drop a league, when teams in the premiership would have him ?

Agree0 Disagree0

This post won't get posted like all 6 posts I've tried putting on here tonight but here we go might try.

Will people just stop with the bulls**t? Arshavin and Milner have been linked with Leeds when they could get into a champions league club, why are posts like this allowed when none of my replies get posted? {Ed001's Note - people that put up lies about their posts not being posted are just asking to be blocked from posting....}

Agree0 Disagree0

No he didn't and this is yet more nonesense, made up by a school child.

Agree0 Disagree0

Well this is it for me. This site must have some kind of s**te filter! This nonesense presumably was checked by someone ...and they stiill let it through!!!!!! FFS this is the last time I visit this total waste of digital space. James MILNER to leeds........I will remove the bookmark now and forever !!!!!!

Agree0 Disagree0

NONONONONONONO and NO!! Wat planet are u on!?!?!? Ed, can u please stop these deluded idiots from posting rumours which will never happen in 1 MILLION YEARS! {Ed001's Note - to be honest it was posted because we thought everyone here needed a good laugh. Sometimes you have to laugh or you will cry!}

Agree0 Disagree0

Certainly gave me a laugh, milner to leeds, hhaha ohh ohh ohh stop it, your're killing me.

Agree0 Disagree0

You must have got confused. When you put in Milner, you actually meant James who is a Miller. Don't need no Roverham players either. Stop putting up this rubbish, this is a rumours site, not a kindergarten whiteboard.

Agree0 Disagree0

Bessie confirmed to the Swans - LUFC OS. Contract cancelled. Can't even get back the wages we spent on the waste of space from a PL club. Pathetic.

Believable10 Unbelievable3

Look on the bright side.... He can't get in our team now !

Agree0 Disagree0

Wow.. Bessone in the premiership... I bet the right wingers from other PL clubs are worried ! NOT

Agree0 Disagree0

If a prem club wants someone they must have a value so why did we not ask for a fee if that's the case?

Maybe we don't want to be known as a selling club so we are now giving people away.

Agree0 Disagree0

Even though he wasn't very good with the lead up to deadline day and deadline day seeing a few departures from ER and no signings our squad now looks thin especially considering the injuries. Midfield looks very light.

Agree0 Disagree0

Would you rather we kept paying his wages so he could sit and do nothing?? Perhaps you would rather we paid him to leave??

Be thankful he's gone and off the payroll, it frees up some wages for the loanees to come in when the loan window opens next week...

Agree0 Disagree0

Lets just be thankfull he is OFF our payroll now, he never did anything for us, so was just a liability?

Complete drivel. No way will Bates spend that kind of money yet.

Agree0 Disagree0

Dont think so as newcastle are toiling up front

Agree0 Disagree0

I heard this earlier from a mate in Newcastle though he said the rumour was we had offered 1 million

Agree0 Disagree0

Leeds Utd did not make any bids for any players during this transfer period. Any comments that state we did, are made up by people who have no knowledge of anything at the club.

Agree0 Disagree0

Ummm, yes im sure despite the small fact that he plays in newcastle's FIRST TEAM and scored TWO last weekend...

I play for Leeds u15's, all the academy teams are at Elland Road, and let me tell you, their is news of a LB coming in, while apparently that Clingan as well. Other than that I know a couple of the older guys have been told they could be pushing into the reserve team

Believable6 Unbelievable19

sanchez watt signed on 3 year deal for 200k,source wikipedia

Believable6 Unbelievable16

Looks like some Leeds fan or maybe Arsenal fan wrote it into wikipedia hurriedly. Max Gradel is in small caps and "200k" not 200,000. Looks slapdash and therefore a lie to me.

Agree0 Disagree0

Seriously you are believing Wikipedia as truth!?

Agree0 Disagree0

It says on wiki we have signed me too.. I will play for nowt

Agree0 Disagree0

Let's hope not if that's all we get then sg has no idea

Agree0 Disagree0

We will know soon. I hope that it is true asd the lad has potential

Agree0 Disagree0

This lad has potential? How many seasons is he going to be loaned out to us before he actually does something then?

Looks like Swansea want their old LB back and yes I do mean Bessone. Why? Welcome to him though. Take him. Please.

Source: Sky Sports

Believable13 Unbelievable11

Bessone was a good player for the swans.gotta play him in a 4 5 1 tho not 442 like we played him

Agree0 Disagree0

Never really got a second chance after his performance against Cardiff. I feel a little bit sorry for him as he didnt get a proper chance to show what he could have done for us. Good luck in swansea. Still need to sign a decent LB, White not not the answer as he is a winger.

smith is signing!!!

Believable6 Unbelievable16

Oh my god!! Really!! I dont believe it!! This is amazing!

Agree0 Disagree0

No he isn't and THERE WILL BE NO signings by Leeds United FC in this transfer window.- OFFICIAL

Agree0 Disagree0

I wish it was true as he can inject some passion into the team. The passion has been missed and it is what Leeds are all about. Fast tempo and run for everything when we havent the ball. MOT

Agree0 Disagree0

Idiot! let it go... if you belive hes coming you are the only one!

Agree0 Disagree0

The only passion Smith has is for himself - he is a really, really, really bad player now but thankfully he is as unlikely to sign for us as he is to get into Newcastle's team this season

Agree0 Disagree0

He isnt exactly an adequate replacement is he

Agree0 Disagree0

Passion lol what for his wage packet. If he loved leeds he'd drop his wages by 5%, not too big an ask. No he'd rather collect splinters.

Agree0 Disagree0

Tempo, you mean what mad max brought to the team, Smith is history and so is Gradel, get over it.

Jermaine Beckford HAS joined Leicester.

Source: Sky Sports

Believable15 Unbelievable4

Leaving us for a bigger club and prem footy didn't last long.

Agree0 Disagree0

This is the best news I have seen for years, I hope Beckford is beginning to realise just how much Leeds did for him, instead of thinking how much (or little) he did for Leeds?

Yes he scored goals which helped us get promoted, but at the end of the day you are no bigger than the team......

I suppose he will get a percentage of the transfer fee, which proves where his motivation is.....

Agree0 Disagree0

At the end of the day being a footballer is just a job for many footballers these days, initially as youngsters they may support the club they are playing for, but ultimately greed and being famous takes over. The pride and honour of wearing is over ruled by money.

Agree0 Disagree0

Love it how all you leeds fans get sulky when if you had half the money to get beckford back you would all be jummping for papa smurf to sign him lets face it your not a big appealing club if the likes of leicester and ipswitch are beating you to players ( And ill be honest you WAS a massive club and the name of leeds Unted was almost irrisistable and players would have laughed at all the other championship teams ) as long as your under bates control you never will be a club players would choose same level as scumthorpe and coventry ! TBH

According to leeds rumour report by the BBC Nunez has been sold to Rangers,so hope it's not true.

Believable4 Unbelievable15

Again nothing on BBC web about Nunez please post this ed

I earlier told that Forssell deal with Leeds is very close. Now I´ve heard that it could take up to two weeks until confirmed. There are still couple of teams interested in him and he want´s to make his decision after international matches.

Kimte

Believable8 Unbelievable3

If he has to think about joining then he's not wanted

Agree0 Disagree0

Latest news about Forssell: His agent says that contract offer is put on hold only because Mikael want´s to concentrate to international matches.
Kimte

Agree0 Disagree0

Do we really need him? Surely midfield cover and the defence (cb and lb) are a bigger priority.

Yeah,ken bates gonna splash the cash...... watch this space..... he gonna buy some new dinner sets for the exec suites.....

U must be readin a different bbc sport page to me then

Agree0 Disagree0

If this is true like I said before all boycott man u game.

Would that be the same quality rumour such as BBC Sport understands Aldershot have bid 24.5M for Leeds' evergreen midfield dynamo Michael Brown?

Try harder next time.

Dont listen to this, dont you have anything better to do with your life tan to make up BS and put it on here

Just looked on BBC sport site nothing about nunez

Agree0 Disagree0

Nunez is the pferfect replacement for Gradel, now who? some rookie, ffs

Agree0 Disagree0

Grayson talks more sense than you in his post defeat interviews

MOT

Believable13 Unbelievable4

Numpty!
Arshavin and Bridge are 'Prem' players!!
They will not come to Leeds.
Same as previous comments about Hargreaves, Upson, etc.etc.

Agree0 Disagree0

How intelligent, u just merged three rumors into one, well done.

Agree0 Disagree0

I'll have whatever he's been having please;
Get real!!

Agree0 Disagree0

Are Bill Gates and Carlos Slim also in a bidding war to buy Leeds?

Get real.

Clingan yes
Bridge possibly
Arshavin no freakin' way

Agree0 Disagree0

Best laugh l've had all day! Who writes your lines?

Agree0 Disagree0

Probably writes his own line albeit after a few lines of something else!

Agree0 Disagree0

As the days have ticked by I have been convinced that there was a master plan behind all the non activity. I could not believe that having got back into the Championship and almost made the plays offs we have actually got rid of more players than we have brought in. At one stage I was really wound up by those who seemed concerned too early and very much in the trust our saviours camp. I do not know if Larry will go.... I only know that I would if I were him. Something is very wrong somewhere, something way beyond prudent business sense and something that those who pay the piper deserve to have a vague idea about. Many Yorkshiremen are fools, some even liked Tony Blair, but Mr Bates should realise that you cannot take the p--- out of all Yorkshiremen all the time and expect the money to keep rolling in

Agree0 Disagree0

Haha ARSHAVIN!?!?!? Id like some of what ur on mate!! he has a first team place at arsenal....no way in hell that he would even think of dropping down all that way to LEEDS

Agree0 Disagree0

The drivel on this site goes from bad to worse, ...this is 5 minutes of my life I will not get back!

Leeds won't sign anyone as i posted last night, simon grayson is to resign as leeds manager after a heated exchange of words with harvry source his dad in bedale sports club

Believable4 Unbelievable9

If this is true and he leaves then all the people on here who keep going on about boycotting etc are all correct and thats him going and no signings!!

Agree0 Disagree0

We will sign someone tonight cant see it being anyone of note and prob on loan. Cant see Grayson walking out think you are talking out of your backside

Agree0 Disagree0

I also could not see him walking out however there doese seem to be problems behind closed doors, something isnt right!

Agree0 Disagree0

The details are he had words with harvey yesterday after the gradel sale,simon didn't want to sell him,harvey tried to persuade simon not to quit yesterday so don't know what's happened today but his father said his son was livid and would consider his position after discussions with his family,if we don't buy anyone means to me he's on his way cos if he was staying signings would be made.

Agree0 Disagree0

Leeds won't sign anyone? No way! We will definitely sign someone before tonight's 11pm deadline as a token gesture to keep fans at bay. Probably a third choice goalkeeper dubbed "one for the future" on a free. What else? Bates - love way you are running OUR club.

Agree0 Disagree0

If Grayson resigns where will he go? Money talks and I suppose rather than allow Gradel to walk out for nothing we got a fee for him. How much seems to vary from 1 or 2 million to 5 million. We should have tied Gradel down to a longer contract long before the start of the season. This is down to the Manager, his Agent and the Board. It seems to me Leeds will have great facilities once the new stand is all finished but there will be very few people using it when we are in League 1.

Agree0 Disagree0

I spoke to his mum and she assured me that his dad had one too many to drink that night and Simons going nowhere!

Agree0 Disagree0

If we wants ot quit let him go. There will be plenty of lower league Managers who fancy there chances at ER. A lot of these lower league Managers have no money to work with which will suit Papa Smurf.

Agree0 Disagree0

Losing Larry would be more devastating than anything. In Grayson we trust !

Agree0 Disagree0

Simple Simon annoyed? he does what he's told like a good little boy

Agree0 Disagree0

Grayson cant be happy with the sale of max he lost Johnson in the summer because the cash wasn't there for a contract max always said he was happy at Leeds but he must have realised there was no improved contract offer coming in from the board and thats why he put a transfer request in to push the move through , With all that has happened over the summer no westwood no smith woodgate bowyer ashton all grayson targets he will walk before the palace game ,

Agree0 Disagree0

What has grayson got to do with contracts? Believe it or not those are not down to him, that's harveys job.

Agree0 Disagree0

I know simon and he wont quit.......if you were in the club in bedale whats his dad called......

Agree0 Disagree0

One to many to drink he had 2 pints came in just after 7 left just after 8 30 believe me or not if I was lying I would have said the words were with bates not harvey but no

Agree0 Disagree0

Don't forget to blame the agents lads. Players are just commodities and agents can make big money if they get their players to move every 3 or 4 years.

You lot are "Pot Less" you sell arguably a top three player in Gradel....why? Because you have to! It makes a statement that would put of any top player from joining Leeds when they can come to Southampton and have a future. It cant be fun being a Leeds fan right now can it?

Agree0 Disagree0

No it isn't but at least unlike some other fans we'll stick by our club through thick & thin and even though disgruntled, will be there come match day.
Gloat while you can. You'll always be a mediocre club whilst once Bates goes we'll be back to being a GIANT!

Okay... Here's where the Gradel money should go:

Chris Hogg: 300k
Sammy Clingan: 500k
Jonathan Walters: 1.5mil Out of favour perhaps??
Bridge: (loan)

Lonergan

Bridge Hogg O'Dea Lees

Nunez Clingan Howson Snodgrass

Walters Mccormack (Becchio when fit)

THAT would be a good team. Much rather have that than spend the money doing up the stadium we don't even own.

Believable5 Unbelievable15

What about Clayton hes been one of our better players so far this season

Agree0 Disagree0

The same walters who plays week in week out for stoke? 1 of only 2 fit strikers they have right now. Even if they sign 1 or 2 strikers.... Only leaves em 4

Agree0 Disagree0

Where's adam clayton in that starting 11, hes class

Agree0 Disagree0

Do you think KB would spend money on a hotel as part of a stadium he doesn't own / have a stake in?

Agree0 Disagree0

Clayton has been our best player this season he has to be involved in the team

Agree0 Disagree0

Adam Clayton is missing from your team, have you been watching any games this season?, he has been our best player so far.

Agree0 Disagree0

Walters is first choice at stoke, rubbush rumour!

Agree0 Disagree0

Adam Clayton best midfielder in league so far this season where does he fit in????

Agree0 Disagree0

For the record, we own the stadium again. its just Thorpe Arch thats still in others hands.

Agree0 Disagree0

Bridge at right back n lees at left back ? are you high ?

Agree0 Disagree0

LUFC may not own ER but one of Bates' offshore entities will. My guess is he is waiting for property prices to rise after the 2012 Olympics before selling it back to LUFC hence also why he is doing these improvements to the East Stand because it means a greater purchase price. In meantime, player transfers suffer. That is why we will not spend good money on any player probably until 2013.

Agree0 Disagree0

I hope you aren't thinking of replacing McCormack with Becchio!

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Aug 2011 15:35:05

Just heard that Leeds will sign Clingan and Kebe in the next few hours

Believable5 Unbelievable13

Kebe will be a Leicester player, as will Beckofrd - another man we should have bid for

Agree0 Disagree0

Hope not, Kee is rubbish and not a Leeds player. He is David White reborn - pace and pace and . . . not much else.

Any news on possible Leeds targets, ed? Have you heard anything about Snoddy to Blackburn? {Ed045's Note - Haven't heard anymore other than Clingan and the return of the Smith rumour, but I don't think Snoddy will go anywhere.

Believable5 Unbelievable4

With the figures being quoted for Snoddy,we will not be a Leeds United player come 11 pm,money before players every time with Bates,a disgrace.

Agree0 Disagree0

The Smith rumour is going crazy on Twitter but I dont see how/why? It was made very clear that KB could not and was unwilling to meet wage demands and NUFC were asking for 1m contribution to wages. Unless something has changed on that front (doubtful!) I can't see it, although obviously I would LOVE IT.

Agree0 Disagree0

I really hope that we arent going to waste money on paying wages to bring alan smith back. He is past it and injury prone!

Agree0 Disagree0

If weve got rid of Max G for Smith I wont attend another game!

SMITH IS NOT RETURNING, HE WONT EVEN DROP HIS WAGES SLIGHTLY

Alan Smith spotted in Leeds ! Could it be ?

Believable11 Unbelievable3

Yes it could be ,,,,,,, him visiting his family!

Agree0 Disagree0

The only thing it could be is a load of rubbish

Agree0 Disagree0

Not this crap again give it a rest smith is not coming to leeds

Agree0 Disagree0

Hes got family in Leeds, Newcastle haven't got a game soon so probably nowt in it at all. KB has made it clear hes not coming back. Although this is a man who said Gradel wasn't for sale(!!)

Agree0 Disagree0

Smith's career as a footballer is finished, get over it. After his injury he was never a decent player again, he will probably go to the USA or Australian league at some stage and fade into further obscurity

Agree0 Disagree0

Wish some folk would take those rose-tinted glasses off. Smith ain't coming back to Leeds.

Get. Over. It.

Agree0 Disagree0

Not again. Have you not had enough of posting this rumour!!

Agree0 Disagree0

*Yawn*, seriously stuck record much?
He's a greedy git and we dont need or want him. He has a house in leeds and his family lives there hes probably just visiting. Move on!

Believable14 Unbelievable13

I live in doncaster, im a leeds fan, but take my 10 year old son to watch donny rovers on occasion, i have watched coppinger a few times and can honestly say he would improve our team a lot.. best player rovers have had for a long time apart from sharp. but he is injured at the moment so maybe just a bit of nothing

Well if wiki says that it MUST be true coz we all no there are NEVER EVER anything wrong put on there!! lol

According to Wikipedia Gradel fee around £5m, come Uncle Ken not long left to get a couple of decent replacements to shore up the back. A couple of decent on loan -Sanchez Watt for one. Redknapp has given to go ahead for Bentley to go out on loan ! Sorted.....

Believable5 Unbelievable5

Are you mental? Watt did nothing for the past 2 seasons here on loan and as for Bentley, he has not kicked a ball for years. Clearly you know nothing about football, as neither would in anyway improve our squad.

leeds should use some the money from the sale of gradel to buy jon bostock from spurs he was very good for hull last year especially one of the games aginst leeds.
also we wont be getting eric lincae as hes been ruled out for upto four month with a hip injury.

Leeds are signing the following players today:

- Wayne Bridge (loan - Man City to pay wages like Bellamy last season)
- A new CB
- Alan Smith
- Sanchez Watt
- Mikael Forssell

Leaving Leeds will be:
- Gradel (once medical completed)
- Paynter (Brighton (500k)
- Bessone (contract termination or loan elsewhere) {Ed045's Note - Wayne Bridge has actually been spotted at Leeds train station earlier this morning.

Believable7 Unbelievable5

Surely this would make all the fans happy if this happened, not holding my breath but would be very very happy!!

Agree0 Disagree0

Why would he be in leeds train station surely hed av drove or been drove straight down m62 it would av been quicker than messing with trains. {Ed045's Note - Just saying what i've heard buddy.

Agree0 Disagree0

As much as I'd love to see four signings today, I just can't believe it. Maybe one loanee (Watt?) and that's about it.

Over to you, Ken - surprise me (and a million Whites worldwide).

Agree0 Disagree0

Bit sceptical on the bridge signing, would he really just get the train to leeds?

Think he would be driving tbh or flown.

Agree0 Disagree0

We are NOT signing Smithy! get that out of your head

Agree0 Disagree0

Sanchez Watt has been keeping quiet about rumours so it's a possibility, Wayne Bridge started his career at Leeds and loves the club so it's a good possibitly, Alan Smith is apparently going to America so I doubt that but Mikael Forssell has been at the club and had a trial extended so I can see that being completed.

As for players out, The Gradel one is obviously done, I can't see the Paynter deal going ahead (although I'd love it to) because we don't have many players, especially upfront players then Bessone I can see being fired as he doesn't figure in any of Grayson's plans.

MOT! Also, I'm in full support of Ken Bates and what he's doing at the club. He's kept our club alive. Long live Bates!

Agree0 Disagree0

Wayne Bridge started at Leeds? try Southampton?

Agree0 Disagree0

No, I was right the first time. Wayne Bridge started his career at Leeds. He was released by Paul Hart (the at the time youth team manager at Leeds) who didn't think he was good enough.
So yeah, his first club was Leeds, not Southampton. He went to the Southampton academy after being released by Leeds

Agree0 Disagree0

Leeds are signing the following players today? are you for real? a CB? what just any CB? perhaps we will just pick one out of the air?

Agree0 Disagree0

Hold on a minute!
Wayne Bridge seen at train station - does he not drive?
As for Alan Smith - would love to see him back but we can't afford his salary unless he plays for free.
Mikael Forssell - good goalscorer and would frighten most teams in this division.
Sanchez Watt - they can kee him.
(yep that's right, love to see smithy back, we miss that sort of agression and passion at the club. If you are honest with yourselves you would too. He had to be sold and who would'nt want to play at MANU. Don't remember all this fuss when Eric went.

Agree0 Disagree0

Wayne Bridge did not start his career at LUFC. He was signed from Oliver's Battery school by Mickey Adams in 1996

Agree0 Disagree0

ALL WRONG, IT JUST PROVES HOW MANY LIARS AND ATTENTION SEEKERS ARE ON HERE
