Leeds United are poised to make another contract offer to Aidan White, softening the blow of the injury which appears to have ended his season.

Manager Neil Warnock confirmed today that the club are finalising a second proposal for White, who turned down an initial offer from Leeds shortly before Christmas.

White has been earmarked by Warnock as one of five first-team players who the United boss wants to tie down and secure ahead of the new Championship season.

Aidy White expected to sign new contract according to NW.....some good news at last! :)

I'm glad somebody has finally took a different approach and got these contracts sorted at the earliest opportunity!

on a side note RIP Chris and Kevin the 2 Leeds fans killed in Turkey 12 years ago to the day, thoughts with their families.

MOT!

Where is the evidence to this? please post... because he has been offered 3 contractsfrom prem teams including one from aresnal who offered a contract 10,000 pound plus supplements according to radios leeds and yorkshire radio...

Agree0 Disagree0

White is being offered an improved contract. Does not say he is gonna sign it.

Agree0 Disagree0

White isnt brilliant come on lets face it, i dont think arsenal would even waste there time

Agree0 Disagree0

Pretty sure you can't speak to players already under contract. So not sure where you get your info of exactly what wage arsenal has offere him

Agree0 Disagree0

If you cant speak to players under contract how has NW almost done a deal for a signing in May.

Agree0 Disagree0

Aidan White is crap! He has done nothing but lose us the ball this season! He is a wimp and needs toughening up! If he went to the PL he would get ripped apart!

Agree0 Disagree0

Jermaine Beckford is a possibility to return to the mighty whites this means we can realise paynter

Believable28 Unbelievable40

Not a chance, forget about it & would we want him anyway, ask yourself why Leicester aren't playing him, we need better than that now, good league one player and that's it..

Agree0 Disagree0

Good league one player......he didn't do that badly in the prem and he has been in reasonably good form at leicester so i don't know what your talking about......but he is too epensive!

Agree0 Disagree0

I can tell this is going to be the same sort of rumor as the smithy rumor, never gunna happen and linked at every posibility :/

Agree0 Disagree0

Personally I think we need to move on and can probably do better . Paynter needs to move regardless he has not been a major influence and would not be missed whatsoever. Why not make more use of Forrsell in my opinion

Agree0 Disagree0

In response to the first response...Beckford has been playing at leicester and he's been in not bad scoring form too.

i would have Beckford back with open arms, his scoring record for us was brilliant and that cant be argued against, yes it was league 1 but you can only beat what is in front of you. he got played up top alone for Everton a lot of the time and did reasonably well under the circumstances.

saying that i would be very very surprised if he ended back up at Leeds - here's hoping!

MOT

Agree0 Disagree0

I agree with 3rd reply. not going to happen. Paynter can go. wont be missed

Agree0 Disagree0

Also i wouldnt trust anything someone said when theyconfuse the word release for realise.

Agree0 Disagree0

Can release paynter anyway.
reality realises release

Agree0 Disagree0

Actually Beckford may well be leaving Leicester after a bust up.
He's an excellent striker and would easily reach 20+ a season in this league.
However, he's lazy, opinionated, self centred, not a team player and a Diva.
Everything NW is NOT looking for.
There's more chance of Ken Bates selling his luxury home in Monaco and moving to Holbeck to be closer to his beloved Leeds.

Agree0 Disagree0

Leaving leicester is a different matter to whether he'll join us or not. NW wouldnt put up with a lazy striker.

Agree0 Disagree0

I believe he's scored 14 in 34 appearances in total including cups, and this is in a side which has had issues gelling where he has not had regular games or been the focal point of goals.

Agree0 Disagree0

We should try loaning paynter out just like we did with somma, to a league 1 or 2 team where he will actually get played not a championship team!

Agree0 Disagree0

Paynter was played week in week out during his loan spell at brighton and made no impact...mr barn door also rejected a chance to go on loan to notts county

Agree0 Disagree0

You do realise that he's on about 35k a week?
stop being a clown and stick to realistic facts
