Although no official reason as to why, stong rumours would suggest that they will have a watchfull eye on st pauli duo max kruse and moritz volz. This is not the first time mervyn day has took the trip to germany.

Former arsenal, fulham, and wimbledon defender moritz volz could be joining leeds united along with current team mate max kruse this summer local newspapers in hamburg suggest. The big centre back is currently playing at fc st pauli and is said to be interested in a return to english football and simon grayson is said to be very interested in bringing the pair to elland road.

Volz would be a good signing. He can play right back or centre back which is handy. Gotta be better than bruce and a.o.b

People keep going on about buying Sean St. Ledger but he really isn't that good. He was terrible against us at Elland Road and Somma had him in his pocket all night. Going back to the defensive midfielder, I think that Mikele Leigertwood would be a great signing for us (if Johnson goes) as he played a blinder against us for Reading at home. Strong in tackle, good in the air, great stamina and he doesn't have a bad shot either. I doubt that we will sign him though since Max Kruse is being heavily linked with the club along with Nils Petersen. Also, Uncle Ken has just become chairman so I doubt Grayson will be given much money to spend

Rumours keep popping up regarding Nils Petersen of FC Cottbus. Apparently, he is interested in English football and sources keep linking him to Leeds United. There are sources linking him to Bayern Munich, although, Petersen and his agent Frank Lieberam are interested in Leeds United. Scouts have been reported in the area aiming to snap up the sensation as soon as the window opens.

Gradel, Howson, Becchio, Snodgrass and Schmeichel going nowhere, Johnson will go to stoke in the summer and leeds will make about 5 signings (2 or 3 in defence) and a defensive midfielder to replace Bradley Johnson

Leeds are looking to push for promotion next season and will be looking to add a couple of fresh faces but will keep the majority of the decent players also. We should also see a couple of the youth players out on loan come into the team to add some pace and agility which is what we have been lacking this season. This could mean that the Leeds United team next season may look something like this:

- - - - - - - - - - Schmeichel- - - - - - - - - -
- - -White- - - Kisnobro- - - Lees- - - Lichaj- - -
-Gradel- - - Howson- - - Johnson- - - Snodgrass-
- - - - - - - - - - - -Kruse- - - - - - - - - - -
- - - - - - - - - - - Becchio- - - - - - - - - - -

Smithies
O'Brien
Connolly
Montgomery
McCormack
Somma
Beckford

The above means that coming in will be:

Montgomery -Sheffield United (350,000)
Smithies -Huddersfield Town (225,000)
Kruse -FC St. Pauli (600,000)
Beckford -Everton (Loan)
Lichaj -Aston Villa (Loan)
Lees -Bury (Returning from loan)
White -Oldam (Returning from loan)

However, the front to will be very interchangable depending on the team Leeds are playing and also who seems to work well together. My best bet would be on Beckford and Becchio like in the 2009/ 2010 season when they were very effective. However, Grayson likes to rotate the squad for some reason and players like McCormack and Somma can both play in midfield as-well which should make the squad very versitile.

I have heard over the weekend that Snodgrass is going to Newcastle for around £5m and that the deal is done. Seems a bit much to me so that would be good business if this is true. He was left on the bench as well for Saturdays game against Burnley although this could be due to lack of form/ rest/ tactical

Also I have heard Bradley Johnson has signed a pre-contract with another club but don't know who?

I don't think nilis peterson will be at leeds next season as he has caught the eye of bayern munich and that would be a no brainer, homeland champs league and all. (google nils peterson bayern munich). Ive heard about max kruse and this is very promising, I go to st pauli for weekend benders down the reeperbahn and there is talk down there that he is on his way out of st pauli and on his way to england with leeds red hot favourites to sign him.
