On this day August 6th - Beckford going nowhere
A look back at what happened on August 6th in recent history at Leeds United.
Leeds striker Tresor Kandol joins Millwall on a six month loan deal.
Leeds sign midfielder Michael Doyle from Coventry City on a season long loan.
With Jermaine Beckford refusing to sign a new deal and firstly being placed on the transfer list only for the club to withdraw that decision, Leeds boss Simon Grayson says the striker will be going nowhere until the end of the season.
Speaking on BBC Look North, Grayson said 'Jermaine will not be leaving, unless it`s a ridiculous offer, he`ll be with us until at least the end of May, hopefully he`s got us another 30 to 40 goals again and got us promoted and he`s signed a new deal'.
After being released by Leeds at the end of last season, goalkeeper Casper Ankergren signs for Brighton and Hove Albion.
Leeds sign Manchester City midfielder Adam Clayton on a one month loan deal.
Southampton inflict a 3-1 defeat on Leeds on the opening day of the season at St Mary`s. Leeds look poor throughout and have only a late consolation penalty from Max Gradel to cheer about.
Boss Simon Grayson is critical of the performance in his post-match interview.
Speaking on Yorkshire Radio, Grayson said, 'You compare today`s performance to the one six days ago, we were a million miles away from it. Last week we had energy, we had purpose, we had passion, we had desire and commitment and today we had none of that.
'Too many players went out as individuals, wanting to do their own thing and not doing the things we told them to do all week. If you go out as individuals you`re not going to get the results you deserve as a team, and that`s where we have come unstuck.'
Trialist Felix Luz bagged a hat trick as a Leeds XI won 4-0 in a friendly at Farsley Celtic.
Leeds also include German midfielder Dennis Grote and Belgian born midfielder Ibrahim Maaroufi in the game.
