Conor Clifford has been released by Chelsea. Young Irish midfielder who captained them and scored the winning goal in FA Youth Cup a few years ago. Good engine, good strike of ball and very comfortable on the ball. Might be worth a punt or trial, ain't going to cost anything!

Think we did ok in the transfer window. We have plenty of strikers now! Strengthened up at LB with Warnock. If Morrison can get his form back from a year or 2 ago we'll be looking good. I'd still like to give Ryan Hall a runout or get a winger on loan and try and get Barkley for the season and depending on Lees and Peltiers CB partnership in the next few games we could get a CB(Gorkss) on loan. Hope GFH are keeping the money for the summer.

Think we could snap George Boyd up on loan next week. can't see him going anywhere else to be fair

Agree0 Disagree2

I actually rate Conor Clifford. think I play too much FM :/

Agree0 Disagree0

Can't see it myself. Neither can Boyd!

Agree0 Disagree0

Boyyds not wanted by warnock source warnock himself on also barkley can only extend 3 months now when loan window opens this month still looking to fetch in winger on loan and will make a play for burke

Agree0 Disagree0

Conor Clifford would be a good signing

clifford, boyd and barkley would be fantastic signs if we got them on permantly. Think we will get burke on loan for rest of season this sign in summer. would prefer redmond though myself!

Agree0 Disagree0

Ive said it before I think GFH have given up this season and don't want to spend cash in January when they know whatever happens we won't be good enough to go up. I think they will wait till summer, get new manager as Warnock has said he will retire and give him 12-15 million to build a quality team from scratch. JD

Agree0 Disagree0

A virtually cost neutral January, when apparently GFH "invested" £55 million into the club! Personally I believe this is rubbish. KB has repositioned his finances behind GHF - inflating the asking price. Zero investment, an out of form striker who interests no one, a LB who was poor and fm didn't interest Bolton, and an African warrior. Norwich my be a small club but their ambition dwarfs ours!

Loan window opens thursday nxt wk
Thomas's proposed to move to blackburn is on
Worth getting in there?

Believable6 Unbelievable22

Why would we want a player who didn't want to come here?

Agree3 Disagree0

Thomas in 4 games only played 1 good game and that was his debut he was outplayed by hall when replaced against huddersfield

Agree0 Disagree0

If thomas, s proposed move to blackburn is on why would we want to get in there doh!

Agree0 Disagree0

Lol yh cus its always wise 2 sign a player who dnt want to be here! he's rubbish far better to be had

Leeds had a sustantial bid rejected for Birminghams Chris Burke and Neil Warnock also spoke to former on loan winger Jerome Thomas who chose to sign for Blackburn Rovers.
MOT!

The deal didn't go through

Agree0 Disagree0

Thomas deal fell through - still available.

Agree0 Disagree0

If they don't want to come to the mighty Leeds United, let them go. They will regret thebadulation they missed. Like my favorite Becchio

Agree1 Disagree0

Leeds bid £200,000 i, e, money from Becchio which was not substantial and far short of the 750,000 that Birmingham want. Once the Butlin deal was on they were neevr going to let him go for less than £750,000. Thomas deal has fallen through so still avaliable. Not sure if I would bother not consistant enough

From what NW has said on OS looks like we will be having a look when the loan market re-opens for a winger, I don't mind that I think we could probably get a better quality player from the premiership on loan for the season. Excited to see how the team plays now can't wait to see habibou play!

Believable19 Unbelievable4

From what I saw today Habibou looks like a headless chicken. Hope the other 2 signings fair better on debuts. Seriously worried about this team.

Leeds want a winger when the loan window opens next week! Warnock will first try and get shaun wright Philips however if he is unable to get that one through will move for George boyd who's been made available for loan after his move at forest fell through yesterday!

Believable11 Unbelievable17

Wright Phillips could be a chance with qpr getting Bentley

Agree1 Disagree0

SWP would be perfect although I think varney should be given a chance

Agree0 Disagree0

Swp your having a laugh, not a chance he will never drop down a league even on loan

Agree0 Disagree0

Neil Warnock has confirmed the club are looking into signing a winger in the loan market. SWP and Jermaine Pennant are both potentials, with Pennants loan at Wolves ending. Personally, I think we should get behind GFH, who always said January wasn't the best time to do business, and despite Becchio going, we have attracted a quality defender in Warnock, and I personally think the Ross- Morison combination could be deadly. Also signing a bit of a loose cannon in 'Haribo', but only on loan, shortening the risk if he is (hopefully not) a flop. Equally, if he does well, have the opportunity to make it permanent.

A bit long winded I know, but for me our best January window in a while, and actually replacing the players Norwich buy off us!

HABIBOU surely cannot be worse than luke varney!

Agree2 Disagree1

Google him and see his feet pretty skilful in my eyes and pace power strength 6:4 inches frightening to think him Morison McCormack as a three with diouf Barkley Austin behind them

Or green diouf Norris oh whatever we should get play offs if we add a winger

Agree0 Disagree0

Not impressed with Habibou today and not impressed with Austin since coming back in the team. Green Norris Barkley Tonge/Varney with 2 from Diouff, Morison and McCormick up front.

Agree0 Disagree0

Habibou has received international clearance and can play the game tomorrow! MOT

Just so we don't have to keep hearing these Boyd rumours all the time, Warnock has said on the official website that he's not interested in Boyd. He did bid for Davies, but Birminghams price was too high, so lets put that to bed as well.

Believable7 Unbelievable3

You mean burke not davies

Agree0 Disagree0

LOL he never said anything about davies so obviously you need 2 do your homework be 4 looking like a burke

Peterborough exec said that another championship club agree to take Boyd on loan after the forest deal collapsed. We will find out who that is in 7 days time

Believable27 Unbelievable10

Surely it's Palace!

Agree0 Disagree0

He failed an eye test

Agree0 Disagree1

I reckon we could loan him with a view to permenent. he's younger than norris/ green and we could afford to move 1 of those 2 on if we signed boyd

Agree0 Disagree0

NW says we`re not after Boyd?
Smokescreen?

Agree0 Disagree1

No smokescreen its Palace

Agree1 Disagree0

Crystal Palace - definitely!

Agree1 Disagree1

Why wait 7 days we already know it's Palace
