According to a lot of Norwich City fan sites over the last couple of days James vaughans on his way to Leeds this week for 600k

Believable68 Unbelievable54

Is he any good

Agree0 Disagree0

Think you will need to pay more like £1mil+ But also think He will be staying at Carrow road next season

Agree0 Disagree0

He is quick

Agree0 Disagree0

Decent Champ player but like most of our rumored signings, wouldn't really add anything. Just another filler.

Agree1 Disagree0

Good player who with ross would rip this league up, much prefer him than beckford that's 4 sure

Agree0 Disagree0

Constantly linked to Huddersfield. There last season on loan, lots of mates there, think IF he leaves Norwich that's where he will go

Agree0 Disagree0

Ah, this is why they want Byram then, maybe they think we were daft enough to swap Bechio for a lesser player and will do the same with Byram too, then?

Agree0 Disagree1

Nah beckford all the way for me!

Agree0 Disagree1

Good player but injury prone.

Agree0 Disagree1

My Girlfriend is a season ticket holder at Hudds and WHEN he was fit he was too good for most defenders in this division. Norwich apparently have put a £1m price on him.

Be a bit of gamble fitness wise but definately not short of quality.

Agree0 Disagree0

He and beckford were the reason huddersfield stayed up last season.

Agree0 Disagree0

Three players coming in are Tamas (after his court case ) N. Hunt & Harry Forrester.

Federici-lazy journalism linking BMc with another Reading player (yawn!)
Rowe- Fry wants £1m. Not worth it with 1 year left.
Mills- Would only be loan deal but wages are stumbling block.

Believable40 Unbelievable30

Oh great first we get the badboy Diouf, then Michael Brown fouling everyone, now were getting someone after his court case, who next joey barton and balotelli lol

Agree0 Disagree0

I'm quite sure Barton and Balotelli would do a job for us!

Agree1 Disagree0

These are just repeated old rumours.

Agree0 Disagree0

Tamas isn't coming, WBA want 1m for him and he wants 25k a week - so putting 2 and 2 together!

Agree0 Disagree0

Says on tv leeds don't have enough money for rowe how did you no he cost a mill

Ps. Leeds haven't bought somebody for a million pounds. Since 2003

Agree0 Disagree0

Leeds have dropped their interest in West Brom centre back Gabriel Tamas following his offences in Romania.

Matt Mills will sign on a season long loan this week from Bolton with a view to a permanent deal next season.

Noel Hunt will sign on July 1st as Mr Bates does not want to sign the 30 year old on a 3 year deal. (He will be removed as chairman on July 1st)

Finally Leeds will sign Jon Taylor from Shrewsbury for around £350,000.

-MS

Believable43 Unbelievable23

What rubbish.
i live in shrew and jon taylor I know and he only yesterday signed new terms there. and he would not be an assett to lufc. shrew leeds

Agree0 Disagree0

When will you fools wake up to the fact that Bates has f*ck all to do with the running of the club now. Get over him ffs.

Agree0 Disagree0

Jon taylor from shrewsbury could be a shrewd move. shrews are my local team and he is the best they have.

Agree0 Disagree0

Mills I would imagine will happen.

Agree0 Disagree0

Just when exactly will some of you fools get it into your nappers Ken Bates has got JACK to do with the Clubs finances what so ever he is only still Chairman by name ONLY. Simples.

Agree0 Disagree0

All made up, as leeds haven't dropped their interest in Tamas

Agree0 Disagree0

ive been hearing that Chris Dawson is heading to Bradford City on loan, also young Alex Cairns going to Bradford and a season loan aswell

Believable36 Unbelievable20

Will only happen if Wells comes the other way

Agree1 Disagree0

Think dawson will be needed here next season.

Agree0 Disagree0

Leeds being linked with Crewe Alexandra midfielder, Luke Murphy.

Think a bid has been accepted for the midfielder from wolves? But no personal terms, hopefully us being in a higher league could mean he waits out for a bid from us

23, young and hungry. could be one of those that McD makes into a star?

Personally think he could be useful to us

MOT

Believable55 Unbelievable18

If your going to copy a sports media newsdesk report. Report it as they reported! With the higher league position you mentioned, we would come unstuck there don't you think with swansea in a premier league compared to our own unfortunately. Blackburn and a couple more clubs reported to be in for him aswell. If he likes to choke a chicken, surely that would mean he chose blackburn. ?!:-P. Must admit though he would be a good signing!

Agree0 Disagree0

Yes, but we will miss the train as usual.

He won't come to us as Swansea are after also.

I'm normally an optimist not pessimist but history speaks for itself.

Agree0 Disagree0

The lad is a different class, if we get him, i'll be very happy as will my fellow Leeds fans.

Agree0 Disagree0

Noel Hunt has a medical this week and will be announced as a Leeds player on Jul 1st.
Adam Federici has been in talks with BMcD but has outlined his plans to fight for his place at Reading.

Source: I know Noel. I live down the road from him in Winnersh (he lives next to Adam Federici)

Believable36 Unbelievable12

If you know Noel, you should advise him to go elsewhere as unfortunately he is definitely not needed at Leeds.

Agree0 Disagree1

Ed
How true is it that Beccio is coming back to Leeds on loan if Norwitch get Wigan striker Arouna Kone who has a £5m buy-out clause? {Ed003's Note - no idea mate but Kone is being strongly linked with Everton.}

Believable7 Unbelievable48

Norwich fan here in answer to your Question, You have more chance of Filling a wheel barrow with Rocking horse poo than Get Becciho back on Loan. He is a key player down here, People ask why did we Play Kamara and not him, the answer was it was in the loan terms of Kamara that he got plenty of playtime, Holt was also on the bench a lot, But The matches Becchio did play in he Showed some great touches, two of which set up Howson. No offence but No chance

Agree1 Disagree1

Kone will be more likely to go to Everton with Martinez there. Plus better prospect of European football, bearing in mind this guy is 29 (i think)

Agree0 Disagree0

Can see Kone going to a bigger and better club than Norwich, as for Becchio what a dreadful move Norwich as turned out for him.

Agree0 Disagree1

No chance, he hasn't played for Leeds yet.

Agree0 Disagree0

Becchio bugger him! To slow crap control and greedy git

Agree0 Disagree0

Daily fail saying Lomas wants Morrison back at Milwall, and also current bun saying we are in for federici from Reading, what do people think to these? Personally I think Federici is a pretty good keeper at this level!

Believable43 Unbelievable21

If all the rumours are true it would be a decent pub quiz question to ask the name of a Leeds United player who didn't previously play for either Reading or Portsmouth

Agree0 Disagree0

Pretty good gk at this level? he's a class gk who we dnt have a chance in hell of signing

Agree1 Disagree0

I hope that Millwall have some serious dosh if they want Steve Morison back. a minimum of £2m or we will have virtually given Luci Becchio to Norwich. BmcD has also said that he's known Morison a long time and that he's a good player. perhaps we will see an improvement after a full pre-season and a pep talk from the boss.

The Snail is reporting that Millwall want to take Steve Morison back - see us Steve.

Believable43 Unbelievable15

Obvioulsy not going to happen

Agree0 Disagree0

Brian - jump at that deal!

Agree1 Disagree0

Good riddance he's s***

Agree1 Disagree1

Yet another player not given a fair chance, leeds are getting really pathetic tbh

Agree2 Disagree0

We are not that lucky god knows how much we paid for him. Was it supposed to have been him and 200k for bechhio. So what's he worth now

Agree0 Disagree0

Would not at all be surprised if he ended back there.

Agree0 Disagree0

Been going to Elland Road for over 40 years and even in darker times than these, new players were given a fairer chance to prove their worth by the Leeds faithful. Morison arrived after a not so minor injury and a confidence-eroding spell on the bench/sidelines. He showed what he's capable of in the Palace game with two quality strikes, so for Billy's sake, give the guy a chance to get a proper pre-season under his belt and get a fair crack of the week under Brian. If he doesn't cut the mustard by january, by all means judge him a disappointment. But trust me, if he goes now, he'll come back to haunt us when we face his new club.

Agree4 Disagree0

Mirror reporting the Beckford in negotiations in Bolton, however, Brian McDermott hoping to get Beckford back home. His late late entry into the negotiations (taking a bit longer to offload the likes of Browne, Norris, Varney etc and free up dead cash) into the negotiations is great news. Beckford's goals have been sorely missed at Elland Road. Added to Smith with McCormack, that looks like the forwards sorted if McCormack can get back to his goalscoring ways.

Believable43 Unbelievable82

No need 4 beckford thanks next joke plz

Agree0 Disagree0

Can we please stop the bring beckford back home rumours its not going to happen as he is not good enough, his record since he left us has not been great, he's a class league 1 striker an average championship striker and a poor premiership striker as he's proved

Agree2 Disagree0

First post I read this morning is this carp, I should have stayed in bed

Agree1 Disagree0

Agree that Beckford has been missed - just hope that McDermott has the sense to sign him.

Agree0 Disagree3

Leicester Mercury reporting Beckford to Bolton is a done deal
Gerry mc

Agree1 Disagree0

Never understand some fans and Beckford - we have not had any decent striker since he left - McCormack has not done the business and we have no other forwards. Beckford will easily outscore anyone we have at Leeds [which tells its own story]

Agree2 Disagree2

Beckford scored double figures in his only Premiership season despite not having much game time. He was way above League 1 standard. He is suited to Championship level, just needs a team around him to provide him with chances (granted he scores probably 1 in for chances), but there's no need to slate him! If he came "home" I'd be happy as long as he did the business, but that applies to any player signing for us! Whether the player in question played for us previously on not shouldn't make a difference. Would you complain if this was James Milner? Aaron Lennon? Get behind the team, whoever it may consist of, and stop whinging. If your thoughts were worth anything then you'd be in the hotseat instead of BMD.

Agree0 Disagree0

Why do people think Beckford is the messiah? He's rubbish at Championship level.

Agree0 Disagree0

Beckford showed his class at end of the season with Huddersfield and kept them up. He is badly needed back at ER.

Agree0 Disagree0

Beckford did really well at 'third division' level but hasn't consistently done the business anywhere higher since then, including The Championship with Leicester and Huddersfield. Why does anyone think he could do it for us at the same level? Leave sentimentality out of it - we're in the business of getting promoted, aren't we?

Agree0 Disagree0

When Beckford is mentioned there are always lots of comments. A lot of fans held him in high regard when at Elland Road. I loved watching him play and have watched him since he left. He is by far a better and proven goalscorer than anything we have at Elland Road and for that reason, I would love to see him back. Lots of Leeds fans still have Beckford's name on their jerseys. There is hope yet!

Agree0 Disagree0

No more beckford jokes please

Agree0 Disagree0

Always folk putting up this drivel about Beckford. He's not worth it. Professional football managers understand this. Deluded fans understand little.

Agree0 Disagree0

Name all the quality players at ER - well I won't need both hands. Beckford would be a great addition - welcome back!

Agree0 Disagree0

Xisco from cordoba 1m
Matt taylor from west spam 1. 25m
S & and hunt from respective clubs undisc
Tommy rowe from. pboro 950k
Reece wabara from. city 475k
Harry forrester from brentford 650k

Transfer window opens monday and all activity will start after a sucessful meeting this past week.
I don't like cr*ppy stories so thought i'd let you all into this information

Martyn1789

Believable19 Unbelievable74

Well this is obviously a crappy story :) xisco ain't even worth no where near 1 mill

Agree0 Disagree0

Xisco is being track by prem clubs. So that's out. Norris&green I can't see leaving. Taylor has been made available at half that price. I know we're Leeds and we don't buy particularly well, but even we aren't stupid enough to pay 1. 25m for a 30-something, slow winger and pay double his worth. Come on mate. let's be serious.

Agree1 Disagree0

Xisco is out of contract and won't cost 1mil plus we ain't got 1mil

Agree0 Disagree0

Xisco - out of contract at FC Córdoba 30. 06. 2013. free.
Harry Forrester - out of contract at Brentford 30. 06. 2013. compensation payable due to his age and at £650k. Don't think so.
I don't like cr*ppy stories either.

Agree1 Disagree0

26 Jun 2013 00:29:54
Sorry but where did you get this from did you get it from the west 'spam' training ground

Peterborough chairman has now quashed the rumours of a Leeds move for Tommy Rowe. He laughed when someone asked if he wanted 750k for Rowe. Clearly he wanted well over £1 million for a player whose contract runs out in a year! Not worth it.

Believable47 Unbelievable5

That's all very well, but the issue for Posh is that Rowe now wants to leave. I doubt it will be for Leeds, but Rowe will leave Posh before the season, and he is simply not worth in excess of £1m.

Agree0 Disagree0

Leeds to announce the signing of 3 players this coming week. One of which to be tommy Rowe on Monday. Hunt to sign on Tuesday.

Believable22 Unbelievable21

Agree0 Disagree1

Agree0 Disagree0

I think the signing is more likely to be hunt

Agree0 Disagree0

Well its Monday where is Rowe?
