LUFC Loan players due to return to parent clubs

Simon Grayson will lose a number of on loan players this week after their loan periods at the club come to an end.

Four players could return to their parent clubs in the next week, unless Simon Grayson renegotiates their loan arrangements or signs them full time when the transfer window re opens at the end of this week.

Speaking on Radio Leeds, Grayson said "We`re ongoing with one or two players and one or two will definitely go back, you thank them for what they have done. We`re still in discussions about one or two others."

Sam Vokes who joined in October, may return to Wolves on January 1st. The striker as scored one goal in ten starts and hasn`t featured in December.

Max Gradel has become a huge fans favourite since also joining in October. He`s mainly been used as a substitute but has made a huge impact in a number of these games.

He`s chipped in with three goals, the most important an 89th minute winner against Leyton Orient.

Tony Capaldi is still eligible for the FA Cup tie at Manchester United on Sunday before his loan finishes on the 4th January.

Capaldi has expressed a desire to stay at the club and Cardiff City have said that they would not stand in his way.

The Irish international defender has not started a game since the Huddersfield game at the start of December and not featured since coming on as a substitute in the FA Cup replay win over Kettering.

Hogan Ephraim end his loan on January 1st from QPR, he`s made just the two starts against Oldham in the league and Accrington in the Johnstone`s Paint Trophy when he scored his only goal for the club.

Goalkeeper David Martin extended his loan spell till the end of January from Liverpool last week and he is acting as cover for Casper Ankergren whilst Shane Higgs struggles to overcome his thigh strain.

Leeds fans will be interested to see the developments over the month of January as the club will be looking to also offload some full time players as well as strengthen the squad.

Pretty certain Vokes, Capaldi and Ephraim will go back and Robinson ans Huntington look like heading out to join Sheehan. Will be interestng to see who he brings in.

Definitly..Hope we can keep Gradel until the end of the season, then possibly sign him. I wonder if any of the Leicester sites havea Gradel watch? SG has certainly pulled off a cou signing him on loan
BrighouseWhite
Who's Simon going to bring in when the window opens again? Anyone know what happened to those triallists (Roy Krishna etc.)?
Rotherham White
i dont think leicester think Gradel is good enough for championship.... when they were there he was on loan at bournemouth, he played for them last season in league 1 now they are back up is it surprising he is out on loan again, im sure u will be keeping him but u prob dnt want him if u go up! seems cursed to be at this level forever... fast as tho! ... Festive greetings to you all
Terrier24
Same to you terrier, its funny how over the years players can't step up another level. To be honest we've realised that he's not good enough for 90 minutes. He's more of an impact player with 30 minutes remaining when defenders are tiring.
dazza71
Of the ones that are due to go back in January then I only want to see Gradel stay. Wouldn't be surprised to see Sheehan, Huntington, Prutton, Showunmi, Robinson and even Marques either leave or go out on loan in January.
dazza71
Sign Gradel up!
Emms
I agree Emms, Gradel should be kept on loan till the end of the season, I am not sure if he can achieve much in the Championship. He's proven with us that he's not half as good when he starts a game.
