Neil Warnock has today revealed some significant news for the future of the club and certain players. Neil Warnock has insisted that the new owners are behind the 63 year old as he looks to gain promotion for the 8th time.
The Official Leeds United site has also sprung some very promising news in regards to possible signing Rodolph Austin.
Neil Warnock has publicly spoken that new owners are in place with the full backing of the way Neil Warnock wants to take the club. Rumours have circulated for the last two months about who exactly is buying the famous Leeds United. After weeks gone by, it can now be revealed that the owners are in fact from the Middle East with strong links to the Bahrain Royal Family the suggested consortium.
With Neil Warnock clarifying that new owners are in place, it now seems no coincidence that Leeds United have tabled a £600k for Leicester City full back Lee Peltier, a £200k agreed fee for Portsmouth’s Luke Varney and a deal for Rodolph Austin that should be done and dusted come next Friday.
On a less positive approach to today’s stark revelations, Neil Warnock has suggested that five clubs are chasing the signature of Ross McCormack. It’s harsh news for many Leeds fans, with little sign of a direct replacement for last season’s stand out striker, the plucky Scotsman could come back to haunt us with one of big cheeses in the Championship. Reportedly on the market for £2.5 million, here is hoping that the money is not wasted on Brighton & Hove Albion striker Craig Mackail-Smith, who failed to live up to his previous hype with Peterborough United.
Further to the negative news regarding Ross McCormack, Neil Warnock seems in damp spirits regarding the future of Robert Snodgrass, claiming the Glaswegian has had his ‘head turned’, suggesting that Robert Snodgrass has his heart set on Delia Smith, Alan Partridge and Colman’s mustard. If Robert Snodgrass is fearful of the lack of ambition at Leeds United, why join a club that are by no means set to cut the Colman’s mustard this season in the Premier League.
Aidy White could be set to stay at Leeds United, after it was revealed he is reluctant to leave. Neil Warnock is hoping to tie down his contract with Leeds United, as Leeds United’s very own Speedy Gonzales could well become a future Leeds United star; not forgetting he has been in the first time fold since the age of 16/17.
