Leeds United are thought to be in the loan market for an addition or two this summer, however, it appears one man is not on their radar.
According to Phil Hay, the Whites are not interested in taking Cameron Jerome from Derby County this summer.
asked about Jerome and been told no, they won't be taking him. All attention in the loan market seems to be on the midfield.

The Yorkshire Evening Post journalist had dismissed the rumours and stated that the striker is not on their list of targets.
Leeds had already signed Patrick Bamford this summer to improve their attacking ranks, whilst Kemar Roofe has been in impressive form for the Whites following Marcelo Bielsa’s arrival.
Conversely, Hay did reveal that he believed all of the Elland Road’s attention in the loan market had been towards the midfield areas, where the Argentine’s side is lacking in depth at the moment.
Adam Forshaw suffered an untimely injury that has meant he will need to be on the sidelines for a while, whilst they sold Ronaldo Vieira to Sampdoria during the transfer window.
Jerome could have been a handy loan addition this summer for Leeds, although it could have been a strange move.
The striker has plenty of experience when it comes to Championship football, however, with the arrival of Bamford and Roofe in fine form, it would have been difficult to break into their first-team as well.
Leeds should also consider looking at bringing a defensive option this summer, as they do appear to be extremely short of options at the back.
