Leeds United boss Neil Warnock says the delay in the takeover of the club did not help in his attempts to keep Robert Snodgrass.
Warnock offered Snodgrass a new deal at the end of last season, one that would have made him the highest paid player at the club.
Snodgrass admitted at the time that he wanted to see the ambitions of the club over the summer in the transfer market before committing his long-term future to the club.
Whilst Warnock has brought in eight players so far this summer, it doesn`t look like being enough as Snodgrass is on the brink of signing for Norwich City after the two clubs agreed a fee for the player.
Warnock says he has tried his hardest to keep the player at Elland Road. He even offered to find him a Premier League club at the end of this season if Leeds failed to win promotion.
The Leeds boss feels that the on-going saga of the clubs takeover has not helped matters, with the club still supposedly in due diligence with a prospective new owner almost two months since the news was first announced. Speaking in the Yorkshire Evening Post, Warnock said, "The takeover and all the complexity of the due diligence has probably gone on too long for us to sort this out.
"If it (the takeover) had been done three or four weeks ago then we`d have had a better chance but everyone behind the scenes is trying to do what`s best.
"These things take time and there`s nothing anyone can do about that."
Despite the impending loss of Snodgrass, Warnock continues to look at strengthening the squad with Portsmouth midfielder David Norris reported to be on the brink of signing for Leeds.
