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

LUFC - Leeds miss out on Dickinson by 14 minutes

It`s been revealed that Leeds missed out on the signing of Derby County centre forward Liam Dickinson by 14 minutes.

Both clubs had agreed the deal which would have seen the striker stay at Elland Road for the rest of the season but the fax didn`t reach the Football League until 5.14pm with the window closing at 5pm.

Due to the extreme weather conditions that swept across the country on Monday, the Premier League extended the closing of the window and made arrangements that the registering of players could be made after the 5 pm deadline, unfortunately the Football League didn`t do the same!

Speaking on the official website chief executive Shaun Harvey said "It is disappointing that the Football League stuck rigidly to the 5pm deadline"

Leeds are still hoping to conclude the deal when the loan transfer window re opens on the 9th of February when clubs can sign players for a maximum of 93 days.

I know when the emergency loan window opens he will make the move, but the football league are a bunch of jokers what a disgrace when the country was hit with all that bad weather, 14 mins late how petty is that, dickinsonis a good player dont know why derby dont play him, to be honest think he will be a better player for us than trundle, he is heading back they will not allow him to stay, lets hope Grayson gets him in straight away whwn hw can he will be a good goal scorer for us,,,,,,,,,,MOT

At least it gives Grayson a chance to try out Grella before we sign Dickinson.....if we wait a few weeks to sign him then does that mean he can play in the playoffs?
Gromjo
We have the business now...Come on lads push hard now....We are all behind you like we have always been.
kazza
thats bad news
Kimbo
Arsenal finally signed Ashavin two days after the window closed!!! what a joke.
dazza71
I suppose the FL didnt extend it because there wernt going to be as much over seas transfers as in the premiership so they didnt feel the need to...Im not agreeing with it im just saying that might be what happend...
