Telfer on Tour, Why?

Ex-Celtic and Scotland defender Paul Telfer is on trial with Leeds United, as manager Gary McAllister adds him to his pre-season Ireland tour squad.

Telfer spent his Celtic days under the stewardship of Leeds United legend Gordon Strachan, and now joins up with fellow Scot McAllister as he prepares his squad for the upcoming League One season.

It appears to be a strange move to add extra experience to what could become a youthful Leeds United setup, however it should be noted that Telfer played his football at Bournemouth last season, having brought himself out of retirement to do so.

Will 36-year-old retiree (once already) really add anything to our team?

dont read to much into this, pre-season is littered with pros on trial etc who dont actually end up getting a contract( we had a few last year) . good way for manager to see if hes got anything to add to squad tho.
Hold on, Telfer ain't half as bad as Enoch!
F**k me,who's next? Chris White and Glyn Snodin?
for once i will agree with sweetleftfoot i cant understand bringing him to see what he is like we all the the answer to that TO OLD, Leeds have been linked to some young up and coming stars who are at liverpool why not bring them to have alook at,

lee chapman would still be better than kandol sweetleftfoot what a rubbish buy he has turned out to be.
I think Eric was glad that Chapman and his WIFE were at Leeds when he arrived!
I hope that he's only having a trial. He was crap when he was younger!!!
