LUFC Slow progress in takeover frustrating Warnock

LUFC Slow progress in takeover frustrating Warnock

Leeds United manager Neil Warnock says he is finding it frustrating whilst the takeover of the club continues to drag on.

GFH Capital are still in negotiations with Leeds chairman Ken Bates about the purchase of the club and with neither party willing to finance any players coming into the club, Warnock admits he is finding it difficult with his side down to the bare bones.

Speaking on LUTV, Warnock said, "It is difficult times at the moment. We were looking for players to strengthen the team before last Saturday and then we go and lose three players.

"We are trying very hard to bring players in but the top players want permanent deals guaranteed for January and we are not in a situation where we can do that yet.

"We can only do short-term loans. The chairman does not want to commit himself and the new party don`t want to commit themselves until it is over the line. It is a frustrating situation."


The takeover has shown signs this week of reaching a conclusion with Leeds announcing that the relevant paperwork has been sent to the Football League for ratification.

The loan transfer window closes this Thursday, November 22nd, until the New Year and Warnock says he is not expecting the deal to be done in time for him to add to his squad. "It is extremely difficult to get anything done and to get any answers.

"I am basically like a supporter, I may know a little bit more but we are all frustrated and the sooner it is done the better.

"The window to the loan market closes next Thursday and I will be very surprised if it is done by then,"
added Warnock.

Warnock is desperate to add to his defence. Jason Pearce is suspended for the next three games following his sending off against Watford last weekend and Lee Peltier continues to play through the pain barrier.

Peltier hasn`t trained all week and he is likely to face a late fitness test ahead of the game.

Fellow defender Tom Lees only returned to the squad last Saturday as a substitute following his eye injury at Brighton and Adam Drury continues to struggle through injury.
