LUFC Grayson in no rush to strengthen squad

LUFC Grayson in no rush to strengthen squad

Leeds United boss Simon Grayson is looking to strengthen his squad during January but is not in any major rush with the next championship game not until January 14th.

Grayson has already brought in Tottenham Hotspur winger Andros Townsend on loan for the rest of the season and Danny Pugh has signed permanently after spending three months on loan with the club.

The Leeds boss says there is still money available to add to his squad but he will be looking to spend it wisely with players also leaving to free up some wages.

Speaking on Yorkshire Radio, Grayson said, "We have got some money to try and do some business with and we will try and do that.

"It is important that we get some good players in now for the rest of the season.

"There is different ways of spending the money. It is not necessarily going on permanent deals and spending large transfer fees. If we want to bring in the quality players, and that is from the higher divisions, then they are on big wages. So whether you are getting them on free transfers and paying their wages or on loan deals, where your still paying good wages, we will try and spend the money wisely what we have available.

"We have got quite a big squad here and we are looking to get one or two players out to pastures new to free up some capital and that is what we will be looking to do."


Next up for Leeds is a trip to Arsenal in the FA Cup next Monday and Grayson says he is looking ahead Crystal Palace game on January 14th.

"We don`t necessarily have to go and get them in the next few days because some people won`t be able to play in the FA Cup. We are really earmarking new signings for the crystal Palace game and then beyond that for the rest of the season.

The players we are looking to bring in have to be better than we already have here. We have got a good bunch but we need to add to it to make us better," continued Grayson.


On loan striker, Andy Keogh has returned to parent club Wolverhampton Wanderers today after coming to the end of his half season loan deal.

Keogh scored just two goals in twenty-four games during his spell at Elland Road.
