Leeds United have completed the signing of Lee Peltier from Leicester City, for a reported fee of around £500k.
The former Huddersfield man now becomes Neil Warnock’s 10th signing this summer, signalling a complete revamp from the squad that existed last season.
Neil Warnock said that a new face would be in place for the friendly trip at Preston North End, and yet again the old timer has stuck true to his word. Lee Peltier now fills a void at right back, a position that has lacked any real quality since the days of Gary Kelly.
The former Liverpool trainee is known for his pace, a commodity that is valuable in going forward and of course defending efficiently.
Neil Warnock also stated to fans before the Preston game that a possible move for Jermaine Beckford could work ‘if the fans can round up some money for his wages’ with the playful 63 year old also claiming that Jermaine Beckford would turn down Southampton to re-join Leeds United.
Sadly Mr. Warnock could shed no further light on the mooted takeover that still drags on heading into the early stages of August.
Fans will have their fingers crossed that come August 18th, fans will be able to sing, ‘Sheikh Abdulrahman bin Mubarak al-Khalifa give us a wave!’.
