LUFC On this day August 7th - Ankergren joins up
A look back at what happened on August 7th in recent history at Leeds United.
Former loan goalkeeper Casper Ankergren becomes Leeds first signing of the summer. Ankergren made 14 appearances on loan the previous season.
With Leeds now having their Football League share, Dennis Wise continues to add to his squad. Matt Heath, Leon Constantine and Curtis Weston all signed two-year deals with the club.
Winger Robert Snodgrass signs a new improved four-year deal at Elland Road after impressing in his first season with the club.
Leeds are hoping to complete the signing of trialist Alexandre Mendy.
The tricky French winger spent much of pre-season with Leeds and played in the friendlies against Rochdale, Sheffield Wednesday, Sandefjord and Newcastle.
Leeds boss Simon Grayson is hoping to sort out a deal for the free agent but has admitted there is 'complications` with the deal.
Grayson is determined to bring the 27 year old to Elland Road, speaking in the Yorkshire Evening Post, Grayson said, 'We`re looking to see if there`s something we can do with him because we feel he`s got potential.
'There`s a few complications but he`s impressed us. There`s an option if we can get him that we might send him out on loan to learn the English game but he`s done himself no harm.' (Mendy eventually joined Chesterfield)
