'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Bothroyd Inbound to Elland Road?

Speculation has mounted continuously over the past few days that Leeds United are set to sign Wolves forward Jay Bothroyd.

Vital Wolves first broke the story, and indeed the quote from Gary McAllister regarding the 26-year-old, who has well and had the hints from Wanderer`s boss that he is no longer required at the Black Country Club.

Bothroyd was transfer listed earlier last season following a reasonably poor spell at now Premier League side Stoke City (4 games, 0 goals) and it`s believed that Leeds may well be one of the potential suitors for the former Arsenal youth team player. Speaking to the Express & Star when quizzed, McAllister said:

'I don't want to show our cards too much, but we have agreed terms with a club for another player, it`s not completed and I'd rather wait before I say who it is.'

Rumours have increased since the announcement of the Wolverhampton Wanderers Scottish Tour squad, in which Bothroyd, alongside team-mate Stephen Elliott were omitted, instead being selected for the reserve team match at the mighty Chasetown on Friday evening.

Wikipedia is suggesting a fee of 300,000 for the forward, which in my opinion, is too much for a man who doesn`t seem that keen on goalscoring.

I think he will do well if he comes he will be a good strike partner for beckford but got a feeling he will not come here just think playing in league 1 will put him off as there is a few chapionship clubs looking to take him but i hope he comes to leeds i think he will set this league alight

I agree, he's never quite done it at the highest level but I am sure his pace and power will be very good in League One.

i have heard from a few people who work at elland rd that he will not be joining us wants to stay in the championship plus his wage demand is to much thats what i have heard anyway but we will see i dont think macca should bother with him, any player who says they need to think about it, it tells me they are not the players you want at a club no commitment
