LUFC Transfer rumours - week 5

LUFC Transfer rumours -  week 5

Vital Leeds United is keeping fans up to date with all the latest transfer rumours over the summer with Neil Warnock looking to build a squad capable of mounting a promotion challenge next season.

This week at Elland Road has been mainly about the takeover talks but there are still the rumours going around about players coming and going.

One we can finally put to bed is the will he, won`t he join with Joel Ward. The Portsmouth defender has signed for Crystal Palace this week.

Leicester City defender Lee Peltier has been placed on the transfer list by the club and Leeds have been linked with a £500,000 bid for the player.

Once again, Queens Park Rangers players are prominent. This week, Shaun Derry, Jamie Mackie and Tommy Smith have all been linked with a move to Leeds.

The trio make it five different Rangers players to be linked with a move to join their former boss Neil Warnock so far this summer.

With Sheffield United losing their play-off final last weekend, how long will it be before we are being linked with some more of Warnock`s old players?

I am sure we will have the yearly Nick Montgomery and Stephen Quinn links.

With Huddersfield Town being promoted to the championship last weekend it did not take long for the papers to start talking about Simon Grayson raiding his old club.

Ross McCormack has been mentioned as a possible replacement for Jordan Rhodes at the Galpharm Stadium. McCormack looks set to decline the offer of a new contract at Elland Road, so looks like he could be on his way out of the club this summer.

With all the takeover talks at the moment though, it is hard to know just what might happen with Leeds in the transfer market in the coming months.

If it is a substantial investment, then get ready for some of the names who might be linked with a move to Elland Road.

If you read of any player links in or out of Elland Road then let us know on Vital Leeds.
