LUFC No return for former midfielder

Any hopes Leeds United boss Neil Warnock had of bringing former midfielder Shaun Derry back to Elland Road have been scuppered after he signed a new deal at Queens Park Rangers.

Warnock has been a long-time admirer of the experienced midfielder, who played for him at both Crystal Palace and Queens Park Rangers and he has been reportedly looking at bringing the 35-year-old back to Elland Road, where he made 78 appearances in a three year spell between 2005 and 2008.

Derry was linked with a move to Leeds in the summer and again at the start of the January transfer window with him struggling to hold down a regular starting place in the Rangers side.

The midfielder was the linchpin of Warnock`s Queens Park Rangers side that stormed to the championship title in 2010, when he missed just one game all season, but he looked to be on his way out of Loftus Road this season having made just three appearances for Warnock`s successor Mark Hughes.

Rangers sacked Hughes in November and Derry has once again become an integral part of their midfield under new boss Harry Redknapp, having made nine appearances since his arrival.

With Derry due to be out of contract in the summer, his form under Redknapp earned him a new twelve-month deal with the club.

Warnock is still looking for his first new permanent signing since the transfer window opened at the start of the month with just ten days remaining.

So far Warnock has signed Ryan Hall and Michael Tonge on permanent deals, with the duo having spent time on loan in the first half of the season as well as bringing in Everton youngster Ross Barkley on a one-month loan deal and extending the loan of Swansea City defender Alan Tate into a second month.
