Lucas back playing? Doubt it! Maybe back as a coach but not a player, his knees are too fubar'd to play!

Adam Hamill could be a good choice though. . .

Skysports.com understands Newcastle are preparing a January move for Leeds winger Max Gradel.

The 23-year-old has been in sparkling form for the Whites this season, bringing him to the attention of Premier League sides.

He only completed a permanent switch to Elland Road 12 months ago, having shone during a loan switch from Leicester
Gradel penned a two-and-a-half-year contract upon his arrival, which is set to run until the summer of 2012.

Spotlight

His fine form has thrust him into the spotlight, though, and the top flight vultures are beginning to circle.

Leeds boss Simon Grayson maintains that Gradel is not for sale, but the Whites have yet to see their resistance tested.

Newcastle could be the first to test the water, with Alan Pardew believed to be keen on a New Year approach.

Gradel has admitted that he would welcome the opportunity to test himself in the Premier League at some stage, but has given no indication that he is looking to make such a step up this season.

Confirmed:

Newcastle launching 6m assaut to reel in max gradel. And with Ken in charges seems like hes a going up north .
Still 6m would allow us to buy a good defender and holding midfied player.

Right, a solid pointer that Woodgate could possibly be on the way to Leeds:

Harry Redknapp believes it would be best if Tottenham Hotspur defender Jonathan Woodgate joined a Championship club on loan.

Woodgate is nearing a return to action after spending over a year on the sidelines due to a troublesome groin injury.

Fears he could miss the entire 2010/11 season have been allayed and the 31-year-old is expected to head out on loan during the January transfer window.

Former clubs Middlesbrough and Leeds United have been linked with bids for the former England international and Redknapp expects high demand in the centre-half.

"There would be plenty of people interested, for sure, " said Redknapp.

"He is one of the best centre-halves in the country if he is fit.

"I think he'd be happy to go and play in the Championship on loan because he has been out for a while. That would probably suit us better."

Leeds have stepped up their interest in a loan deal for Jonathan Woodgate, however Ken Bates will only allow talks to commence if Tottenham are willing to pay the majority of his wages. (rumoured to be around 80% of them! )
Middlesborough are also interested and with Woody being a M'Boro fan and the prospect of him returning to his hometown would probably appeal - however the sheer support from Leeds fans for Woodgate would level the playing field.
It's down to 1. Bates / Spurs and 2. Woodgate's preferred destination.

Alan Smith is also NOT on Grayson's agenda, it's just Leeds fans trying to bring back a past that was over 6 years ago. . players change in 6 years. . . plus we would need 11 men left on the pitch after most games if we are going to gain promotion!

Richard Dunne. . .a no-go as Bates has already ruled this out due to his agents 'starting demand' of £19,000 p/wk wages.

Alan Smith is my favourite ever player, but coming back to Leeds will unfortunately do us no good. At the moment he hasn't played well enough to waltz into Grayson's starting eleven, and they're too many fickle (and stupid) Leeds fans that still hate him, despite the noble way he left the club. Dividing the fans when we're pushing for promotion isn't something we should let happen.

If Michael Johnson was going to sign in time to play Cardiff this evening, it would have already been announced, but he'd be a handy addition.

Kris Commons would be a class signing.

Someone is claiming that (not me!) Smudger won't come back as we couldn't afford his wages but I was of the understanding that he would be willing to take a significant pay cut. Instead, allegedly, we are turning attentions to Ameobi. We don't need a striker!
The silly season is off the scale now LOL!
Come on Leeds let's get 3pts tonight :)
Ps don't shoot me but I would love Smudger to come back

To the idiot who says they saw Richard Dunne today, I watched Villa train today and he was there. Why post so much BS
If youre watching villa train then why the hell do you support leeds? don't care if they youre local but ya don't see leeds fans in manchester queing up to watch em train now do ya ? {ed's note - I used to go and watch Boro train regularly when visiting my parents as they lived in the same village as Boro's training ground. Some of us aren't bitter and twisted and are interested in watching football for football's sake.}

Alan Smith has apparently spoken with Pardew and asked him that if he is not in his first team plans, he wants to go out on loan and since Leeds is his home town club and the team he supports . . A move may be on the cards. However, I would have thought that there are several teams trying to sign him ?!

Ed wondered if you could shed any light on the truth about smith rumours ? {ed's note - all I know is that he wanted to speak with Pardew about his role at the club, he wants to play first team football and if he can't get it at Newcastle his first choice is a return to Leeds. That is all I know, I can't say whether it is likely to result in a move or not.}

Leeds Rumours
Leeds United boss Simon Grayson will attempt to land Newcastle United midfielder Alan Smith on a loan deal this month as he looks to strengthen his Elland Road side ahead of a concerted push for a Premier League return.
The 30 year old former England international has not figured regularly in the St James' Park first team and may well be tempted by a return to the club which launched his career, especially if Grayson could guarantee the tigerish midfielder a starting berth.
Smith amassed 228 appearances for Leeds United during his six seasons in their first team but left when the club was relegated from the top tier in 2004 and moved to Man United where he failed to secure a regular spot due chiefly to a succession of injury problems.
Leeds United are currently in fourth spot in the Championship in their first season back in the division after securing promotion last season. Grayson hopes that the return of a cult hero could help further the club's hopes of a Premier League return.

James Hayter likely to come, not signing a new contract. Kris Commons also wants to come, but wages are a stumbling block. Michael johnson very likely, before Cardiff game.

Bates has explicitly said no to Woodgate, and, once again, we cannot afford Smith.
