Northern Ireland boss wants striker to join Leeds United

Kyle LaffertyLeeds United fans in The Transfer Tavern are hoping that encouraging words from the Northern Ireland manager will encourage a loan target to join the club.

The Daily Mail is reporting that Michael O’Neill is pleased with the news that Kyle Lafferty would be getting more game time should a potential loan move to Leeds United come off.

Lafferty has made just two substitute appearances for Norwich City this season, and O’Neill is fully behind the player moving away on loan to get game time ahead of his countries trip to France for EURO 2016 in the summer. Speaking about Lafferty, O’Neill said

‘The most important thing for me is that Kyle gets playing. It’s a hard situation. It’s November now and he hasn’t started a game for his club. That’s not an easy situation to deal with. I thought he did extremely well given the circumstances.’

The Leeds United fans in The Transfer Tavern hope Lafferty takes notice of his international manager, and are hopeful a loan move can be sealed as soon as possible.
