Warnock - No more in unless takeover finalised

Leeds United boss Neil Warnock says unless the takeover is completed he cannot see any more players coming in to the club before the transfer window closes.

Leeds have been in talks with a possible new investor to the club since the start of the summer, but as yet, nothing has been finalised with the transfer window nearing an end.

The summer transfer window closes in one week and Warnock says he is now looking at bringing in players on loan from September 1st, when Premier League clubs have to finalise their 25 man squads.

Speaking on LUTV, Warnock said, "I can`t see anything changing before deadline day unless the takeover is finalised.

"I think we will now be looking to loans from the Premier League when they register their 25 man squads on September 1st."


Warnock feels his squad is nowhere near good enough at the moment to make a challenge for promotion, with no depth to his squad.

The Leeds boss has already lost Paul Green for around eight weeks and he says if a few of his other first team players were to be injured, he wouldn`t know who to turn to. "I don`t think the squad is anywhere near strong enough at the moment. If we lost the likes of Jason Pearce and Rodolph Austin at Peterborough on Saturday, I haven`t a clue who we would turn too," added Warnock.

The Leeds boss, who has already brought in ten players this summer, is currently waiting for an answer from El Hadji Diouf who has been playing for the club on a non-contract basis.

Warnock said he was looking for an 'icing on the cake` signing at the start of the month but with the financial restraints at the club, he knows he is going to struggle to match any offer made from other championship clubs for these sort of signings. "I would love to bring in three or four top class players in, make no mistake about it.

"I enquired about one yesterday but another championship club has offered him a lot more money than we can afford."


Leeds currently have just twenty-one players available to them with first team experience, with three of those, Paul Rachubka, Danny Pugh and Ramon Nunez are all on the transfer list.
