Warnock hoping for investment answers by next week

Warnock hoping for investment answers by next week

Leeds United boss Neil Warnock says he is unlikely to bring in a new player before the weekend but admits he could be looking at a different calibre of signing this time next week.

With new investors reported to be at the table and in talks with the club, Warnock is hoping a deal can be sorted quickly to ensure that Leeds season isn`t over before it has hardly started.

A frustrated Warnock is desperate to add to his squad with Ross McCormack the latest player to join the injury list but he admits with the takeover talks on-going he could be looking in a different market if finances suddenly become available. Speaking on Yorkshire Radio, Warnock said, "I am not sure what market we are looking at. The chairman assures me they are doing everything they can to rectify it.

"Hopefully it will be sorted as quickly as possible and we know where we are aiming at. A lot of the loan players we targeted in the summer are now gone, there aren`t many that are available and it will then depend on which bracket of player we are looking at."

Warnock admits he doesn`t expect to add to his squad before Saturday but is hopeful that he will have the finances available before the trip to Bristol City the following weekend. "I can`t see anything before the weekend but hopefully before the following weekend we will have some answers to the questions and we will know where we are going.

"If the finances are sorted, and the club are looking to bring this extra finance in, then we will be looking at a better type of player than we are currently.

"Hopefully, if the situation is sorted then we will try and bring in one or two players longer term rather than just short-term.

"They know that I want players sooner rather than later, so they know the urgency regarding it.

"I have got assurances they are trying to put something in place so I have just got to leave it with them,"
added Warnock.

Leeds are now reported to be in talks with a possible new investor after the club failed to agree a deal with a consortium from the Middle East.

The talks have been on-going since the end of last season but the club are ready to move on to a new investor. The new investor is reported to be part of the initial group of possible investors but they have decided to go alone in their possible investment into the club.
