LUFC Warnock to miss out on another former player

LUFC Warnock to miss out on another former player

After having the door closed on the possibility of signing one of his old players earlier in the week when Shaun Derry signed a new deal at Queens Park Rangers, it now seems Leeds United boss Neil Warnock will miss out on another after Clint Hill was appointed Queens Park Rangers captain.

Hill, like Derry, had played for Warnock at both Queens Park Rangers and Crystal Palace and Warnock admitted in the summer that he was keen on signing the defender, who was out of contract at Loftus Road in the summer and taking him to Elland Road.

The defender, who was named the clubs player of the year in their first season in the Premier League last season and eventually decided on a new one-year deal with the West London club to dash any hopes Warnock had of signing him.

Hill looked like he would become available again in the January transfer window as he struggled to break into the Rangers side under Mark Hughes, despite the side struggling at the foot of the Premier League table.

Hughes was dismissed towards the end of November after failing to win any of their opening twelve games of the season, with Hill having made just six appearances.

Harry Redknapp replaced Hughes and Hill has been an ever-present in his side since his arrival, playing in all 13 games for his new manager.

Despite becoming a regular under Redknapp, Hill was once again being linked with a move to Elland Road earlier this month but after Rangers regular captain Ryan Nelsen announced he was leaving the club to take over the manager`s position at MLS side Toronto FC from February 1st, Hill took over the captaincy.

Ji Sung Park has also captained the side this season but Redknapp decided to appoint Hill as captain for the remainder of the season after impressing in recent weeks.
