LUFC Warnock - Many changes to come in the summer
Leeds United manager Neil Warnock says he is expecting many changes in personnel over the next few months.
Leeds still have an outside chance of reaching the end of season play-offs but Warnock says he has already has three or four players he is looking to bring in over the summer and he has the backing of chairman Ken Bates and CEO Shaun Harvey, if Leeds face another season in the championship.
Speaking at his weekly press conference, Warnock said, "I don`t think we`ve got enough tools in the cupboard at the moment, without being cruel.
"I`d think there would be quite a lot of changes over the next few months. That`s how I see it from a distance. The whole club has to do that together - the chairman, the staff, everyone. We all need to pull together.
"I`ve got three or four players I`d like to bring in in the summer already and it`s just a matter of getting a wage bill that`s sustainable and which the chairman agrees with that we can use to bring some players in and put some transfer money as well in the kitty.
"I`ve told Shaun and the chairman what I think I would need to get promotion next year. The chairman and Shaun are quite clear in their minds that they`re going to try and provide that for me. It`s the only chance we`ve got."
Warnock has only signed a contract with Leeds until the end of next season, by which time he will be 64 and he says he does not want to be wasting his time. "I don`t want to waste a year of anybody`s time. I haven`t got a year. Everything`s been positive in our talks,"added Warnock.
The Leeds boss is hoping to Lead Leeds to promotion to break the record for most promotions by any manager in the Football League.
He is already the joint holder with Graham Taylor and Dave Bassett, who all have seven promotions each and he is the only one of the three currently in management.
Leeds have eleven players out of contract in the summer, including Aidy White, Michael Brown, Danny Webber, Mikael Forssell and Alex Bruce who have all played for Warnock since his arrival at the club.
