LUFC Varney looking forward to Leeds move

LUFC Varney looking forward to Leeds move

Portsmouth striker Luke Varney says he is looking forward to a move to Leeds.

The 29 year old has been linked with a number of other championship clubs since the end of last season but he admits he wants to be part of Neil Warnock`s side as the Leeds boss chases a record-breaking eighth promotion. Speaking in the Yorkshire Evening Post, Varney said, "The other clubs that have been mentioned are still Championship clubs. But they are not clubs of the size of Leeds.

"Neil`s got a great record in the Championship and it`s something I want to be a part of. With coming to Leeds, I can also still get home to see my little child in Leicester and it would be perfect. I`m looking forward to a move to Leeds."

Varney only signed for Portsmouth last summer on a three-year deal from Derby County but the cash strapped south coast club are desperate to offload most of the current first team squad.

Leeds have already signed Jason Pearce from Portsmouth this summer and also held negotiations with Joel Ward before he decided to join Crystal Palace.

David Norris is also reportedly a target for Leeds but they face competition from Sheffield Wednesday who have reportedly spoken to the midfielder.

Both Varney and Norris trained with Portsmouth on Monday as the League One side returned for pre-season training.
