LUFC Grayson - I will spend my transfer budget

Leeds United boss Simon Grayson says he intends to spend his transfer budget during the January transfer window.

The transfer window closes a week today and Grayson intends to spend the cash that is available to him as he hopes to lead Leeds back into the Premier League this season.

Speaking on Yorkshire Radio, Grayson said, "We have got a budget to spend and we will spend it.

"A large part of the time the chairman has always backed me on the things we need to do.

"We have a wage structure that we will not go over and the business is running in a positive manner and if I am given X amount of money I will go and spend it, there is no point in keeping it in the bank."


Leeds have so far brought in four players during January. Danny Pugh has completed a permanent deal after spending three months on loan at Elland Road.

American international Robbie Rogers is set to sign a 18 month contract once international clearance and a visa are completed this week.

Andros Townsend (Tottenham Hotspur) and Fabian Delph (Aston Villa) have both signed loan deals with the club.

Grayson admits the signing of Delph on a month`s loan has not come cheap although he is trying to sign the former Leeds midfielder for the remainder of the season. "Any money that comes into the pot we get to utilise. Fabian Delph does not come cheap, whether it is for a month, 93 days or hopefully until the end of the season, which is what we are trying to do.

"You spend the money in any way that you can, there may be deals that we do which will involve transfer fees or there might be other deals that are going to be loan deals but are the same quality as Fabian. There is a pot to spend and I will make sure that I spend it all,"
continued Grayson.

Leeds are also looking to move on players before the transfer window closes.

So far just youngster Will Hatfield and club captain Jonny Howson have departed the club during January.

A number of other players have been linked with a move, with defender Alex Bruce the latest, having been linked with a move to American MLS side LA Galaxy.

With Birdseye holding the purse, what the hell can he buy for 5.45 these days. He would need to bring Anthony Worrall Thompson shopping with him.
