LUFC Warnock - No first team players will leave

Leeds United boss Neil Warnock says he doesn`t expect any of the senior players in the side to leave during the January transfer window.

Leading goalscorer Luciano Becchio and highly rated youngster Sam Byram have already been linked with Premier League clubs and Warnock says unless someone comes in with an offer they cannot refuse, he can`t see them leaving.

Speaking on Yorkshire Radio, Warnock said, "I can`t see anyone leaving unless we want them to leave. We have a small squad and with injuries and suspensions, we want to keep all our best players.

"Someone might come in with an offer that we cannot refuse but I will be very surprised if we lose any senior players."

Warnock will also be hoping to offload a number of squad members who do not feature in his plans. Paul Rachubka, Paul Connolly, Robbie Rogers and Danny Pugh have all been on the transfer list since the summer and are still with the club. "There is one or two lads that I hope will be leaving the club who don`t figure in the first team plans," added Warnock.

Rachubka has recently been out on loan with Accrington Stanley but a sending off against Plymouth Argyle recently saw him return to the club.

Connolly spent the first month of the season out on loan at Portsmouth until an injury brought a premature end to the deal.

Rogers has been with League One side Stevenage since August but he has failed to become a regular in the side making just nine appearances, with most of those from the bench.

Pugh has remained at Elland Road and he has made six appearances but he hasn`t featured since coming off the bench at Burnley in November.

Ramon Nunez is also on the transfer list but he is out for the season after suffering a cruciate knee ligament injury in a reserve team game early in the season.
