Heard prem teams after EHD. He'll probably go as we'll! I hate how as soon as we get a good player they end up moving to some other club (Norwich). Hope he don't go but wages are a big pull and i think he'll on more than way we're giving him!

Btw Norwich aren't after him. 😏

Well its leeds uniteds fault really as we always wait until its too late to offer a contract . everyone seen hes good but still dont get straight in there with an offer , hope he stays which there is a good chance as we can offer him treble what hes on at the moment which is a good thing

Agree0 Disagree0

By all accounts he was offered a lot more money to play in other countries but liked the idea of playing for Leeds.
Since signing the short term contract, he has spoken to NW and promised him that he won't be moving on.
True, this is only EHD's word and can easily be broken, but even his agent says he will he happy to stay at Leeds.
I may be over optimistic here, but I get fed up of all the negativity on this site from 'fans' so wanted to counteract it with some hope. :)

Honestly? I think his heart will rule his head and he will stay put :)

Agree1 Disagree0

Doesnt he still have 3 more months left? Its not quite leaving it too late just yet. I know we are leeds and any deal take longer than anyone else but still. And lets be honest until the takeover is sorted they probably cant make a competitive offer. Im sure it will all work out in the end, no need to panic just yet.

I agree, his heart will rule his head. If he'd wanted the money, he could have played a lot better places than Doncaster last season too.

I think (or hope) he'll retire with us, wearing the captains armband and continuing with the composure and form he has shown since moving here.

Agree0 Disagree0

Probably Reading and Wigan, at a guess.

Agree0 Disagree0

Why have you assumed he'll leave? as Warnocks said he had wage offers 7 times more than we can offer, and he also said in an interview that he wants promotion with Leeds and to be a legend with the fans. doesn't sound like someone wanting to leave to me.

alex nimely 1pm tomorow having medical at thorpe arch according to Ben Fry.

Believable30 Unbelievable15

I think this may be correct, I have heard it a few times now.

a bit like gradel imo, although not as good.

Agree0 Disagree0

His tally doesn't show much but if he's clise to Gradel i'll settle for him

Agree0 Disagree0

Saw him play for cov last season when he was on loan from man city and he was the one that we brought down to give two penaltys away on both ocassions when we lost 2 1 very skillfull

Agree0 Disagree0

To first poster can you remember wen gradel came to leeds on loan he was a nobody he was only just a bit part player and never played for leicester city came to leeds and was a real talent with sg as manager just look at nimely he would be under nw who brings out the best of his players so i hope this could be true

Agree1 Disagree0

Warnock says no loans this week so that puts your rumour to bed mate

Agree0 Disagree0

Well ive been listening to yorkshire radio all day today and Ben Fry hasn't mentioned anything about Nimely

Agree0 Disagree0

Still waiting!

Agree0 Disagree0

Sounds plausible, Warnocks admitted he made a loan bid for a striker with pace, Nimely fits the bill, and not in Man Citys plans.

Agree0 Disagree0

I think it is funny how you guys slag of Simon Grayson and his signings and then bang on about Gradel all the time. Who signed him?

Agree0 Disagree0

Good player -could be a great asset this season; possibly better than Townsend. Chapel A

Agree0 Disagree0

If i remember rightly didnt paddy kisnorbo mention to larry how good gradel was

Agree0 Disagree0

Still waiting

I would say buyer isn't gfh more like a silent backer that's why bates and haigh can't disclose anything otherwise as we know who gfh are why would there still be a confidentiality clause in place

Believable46 Unbelievable12

Marriage made in heaven would be Al Khalifa,
plus his mates and David Haigh and that is what I am going for and what we deserve.
Look out Europe,here we come.

EHD will be offered a 18 month contract which will be performance bonus related,hopefully with a promotion to the EPL
MOT!

Believable32 Unbelievable4

Hopefully a big goal bonus, so we'll get less of those misses from him.

Agree0 Disagree0

Hes only done 2 m8! chill

Agree0 Disagree0

Well who's to say EHD doesn't deserve a 2/3 yr as his rep states ?
I couldn't stand the bloke at first but as the saying goes, never judge a book by its cover.
He's been absolutely amazing for us, loves the boo boys of opponents and to wind them up summat chronic and in the same token showed us exactly what he's capable of at 31 yrs old aswell as the appreciation to us fans.
2 prem sides enquired already,
SNAP HIM UP WARNOCK WE CANNOT LOSE DIOUFY

Agree1 Disagree0

He is ok in the Championship but never cut the mustard in the premiership

Peter Risdale banned from being a director for 7 and a half years. 8 years to late if you ask me!

L3EDS

Believable62 Unbelievable1

Good. I am no fan of Peter Ridsdale

Agree0 Disagree0

Hes just bought Preston football club

Agree0 Disagree0

Hopefully when bates sells leeds,he will be banned too

Agree0 Disagree0

He hasn't bought preston, he is just chairman. that also allows him to be involved since he doesn't hold any directorship.

Agree0 Disagree0

Risdale was banned 15 years too late, I think you mean.

Get todays YEP,very worrying article regarding GFH Capital only having $5 million in liquid cash
How are they going to raise £52 million
Who are the Yanks and Saudis ? How weathly are they ?

Believable10 Unbelievable34

Stop worrying for god sake, David Haigh wants to put all the rubish journo's are spreading but due to confidentiallity he cant. It will all come out in t5he end, so be patient and stop fretting

Agree0 Disagree1

YEP is not exactly a repository of knowledge of middle eastern financial institution and don't know the workings of the proposed investment so as usual they'll just guess or forward rumours heard down the local.

Do you think KB would be wasting his time talking to investors who had little to invest? Makes no sense at all!

Agree1 Disagree0

Try reading the article and not the headline, as the guy above says David Haigh wants to disclose things but can't due to confidentiality, the one thing as Leeds fans we all know is Papa Smurf won't be dealing with people that can't give him the money he desperatley craves

Agree1 Disagree0

I wish people would stop listening to rubbish printed in the YEP. We're talking about Phil Hey and his numpties here, when have they ever been correct?! they are clueless! All they do is re-word then re-print info that you and I could find on the net...
Re GFH, do you really think they would buy LUFC if they only had 5mil cash?....
Talk to Frank

Agree0 Disagree0

John Fitz will buy us.

StevenLufc

Agree0 Disagree0

Hes concerned, like a lot of leeds fans!!

Agree0 Disagree1

I got impression gfh capital were brokers and doing the deal for one of there clients that why confidentiallity was in place

Agree0 Disagree0

KB has always maintained that he would not consider any party without proof of funds - that is all we need to know - CTLUFC

Agree3 Disagree0

Gfh are an investment company, they don't leave cash lying around in banks etc, they invest then re invest. Money in the bank doesn't make more money apart from a bit of interest.

Agree0 Disagree0

They have more than that, GFH Capital are a subsidiary company to GFH, GFH are the ones with the money and they'll be the ones paying, GFH Capital are there have as little cash as possible so they don't get taxed as much!

Agree0 Disagree0

Completely irrelevant. gfh are brokers, merely a front for others with money.

KEEP CALM AND CARRY ON.

LLHB MOT

Agree0 Disagree0

Due diligance has been carried out, enough said.

Agree0 Disagree0

5 million is cash is a lot, what about their assets?
