On this day July 16th - Social network ban imposed
A look back at what has happened at Leeds United on July 16th in recent history.
Dennis Wise is taking the side to Germany for three games and he names his twenty-man squad.
Wise includes a number of trialists. Goalkeepers Nick Hamman and Scott Loach travel with the squad as well as David Prutton, Leon Constantine and Curtis Weston.
Leeds start their three game tour of Germany with a game against Union Berlin on the 18th.
Hamman, Loach, Richardson, Marques, Heath, Lewis, Thompson, Prutton, Douglas, Kandol, Beckford, Constantine, Weston, Carole, Bayly, Howson, Westlake, Delph, Elliott, Parker.
Billy Paynter scores his first goal since signing for Leeds from Swindon Town in the summer. Paynter scores the only goal of the game as Leeds win 1-0 in Slovakia against MFK Kosice.
Leeds finish their two game tour of Scotland with their second win after a 2-1 win over Scottish Premier League side Motherwell.
Ramon Nunez and Alex Bruce are on target for Leeds in the second half after trailing at half time.
Leeds boss Simon Grayson bans the clubs players from using the social networking site Twitter after Davide Somma revealed his injury on his page.
Speaking after the win over Motherwell, Grayson said, em>'I am hugely disappointed in the manner that it has come out.
'The club have a policy with any social networking sites from leaking any sort of information and it shouldn`t have come out in that manner.
'From now on all players will be banned from that network, it`s caused too many problems for other clubs and their players.
'If anyone is caught using it there will be major implications.'
Whilst he was disappointed with Somma breaking the news, Grayson admitted that the striker faced a lengthy spell on the sidelines after tearing his cruciate ligament.
Coventry City boss Andy Thorn says midfielder Sammy Clingan is not for sale. Leeds had been strongly linked with the midfielder who remained with Coventry throughout the season.
Elsewhere in transfer rumours, Sheffield United are not interested in a swap deal, which would see Billy Paynter move to Bramall Lane in exchange for Nick Montgomery.
