LUFC On This Day - July 16th

A look back at what has happened at Leeds United on July 16th in recent history.

Birthdays

1957 Keith Edwards (56)

2007
Dennis Wise is taking the side to Germany for three games and he names his twenty-man squad.

Wise includes a number of trialists. Goalkeepers Nick Hamman and Scott Loach travel with the squad as well as David Prutton, Leon Constantine and Curtis Weston.

Leeds start their three game tour of Germany with a game against Union Berlin on the 18th.

The squad:
Hamman, Loach, Richardson, Marques, Heath, Lewis, Thompson, Prutton, Douglas, Kandol, Beckford, Constantine, Weston, Carole, Bayly, Howson, Westlake, Delph, Elliott, Parker.


2010
Billy Paynter scores his first goal since signing for Leeds from Swindon Town in the summer. Paynter scores the only goal of the game as Leeds win 1-0 in Slovakia against MFK Kosice.

2011
Leeds finish their two game tour of Scotland with their second win after a 2-1 win over Scottish Premier League side Motherwell.

Ramon Nunez and Alex Bruce are on target for Leeds in the second half after trailing at half time.

Leeds boss Simon Grayson bans the clubs players from using the social networking site Twitter after Davide Somma revealed his injury on his page.

Speaking after the win over Motherwell, Grayson said, em>'I am hugely disappointed in the manner that it has come out.
'The club have a policy with any social networking sites from leaking any sort of information and it shouldn`t have come out in that manner.
'From now on all players will be banned from that network, it`s caused too many problems for other clubs and their players.
'If anyone is caught using it there will be major implications.'

Whilst he was disappointed with Somma breaking the news, Grayson admitted that the striker faced a lengthy spell on the sidelines after tearing his cruciate ligament.

Coventry City boss Andy Thorn says midfielder Sammy Clingan is not for sale. Leeds had been strongly linked with the midfielder who remained with Coventry throughout the season.

Elsewhere in transfer rumours, Sheffield United are not interested in a swap deal, which would see Billy Paynter move to Bramall Lane in exchange for Nick Montgomery.


2012
Sky Sports are reporting that Norwich City have made a fresh bid for Leeds United captain Robert Snodgrass.

Norwich failed with two bids last summer to prize the Scotland international winger away from Elland Road but Sky say that their sources have been told that they have come in with another bid.


Jamaican international midfielder Rodolph Austin says he would like a move to Leeds United.

Austin was on target for his Norwegian side SK Brann on Sunday in their 6-2 win and speaking on Norwegian TV channel TV2 after the game, Austin Said, 'I am 27 years now, and I think the timing is right. It is between the clubs. If I can go to Leeds, that is something I would like.

'I don`t know if this was my last game here, but if it was then it was a perfect way to finish'.

Reports broke on Friday that Leeds were interested in taking the Norwegian player of the year to Elland Road.

Austin is in the final year of his current contract at Brann and he enjoyed a trial with Leeds boss Neil Warnock during his time at Queens Park Rangers. Speaking in the Yorkshire Evening Post on Friday, Warnock said, Speaking in the Yorkshire Evening Post, Warnock said, 'He`s a player I had at QPR. I had him over for a week and he`s a smashing lad.

'I`ve always liked him, but it`s always been a bit too much money. The last time I spoke to them, it was around the 2m mark.

'But his contract runs out in December and he`s one that we are looking at as well as several others.'

Austin looked emotional after netting his goal in the win over Odd Grenland on Sunday afternoon and he spent time at the end of the game applauded fans on all four sides of the ground.

Leeds have already been reported as having a bid turned down for Austin but they are expected to go back in with another bid for the player who is out of contract in December.


Celtic boss Neil Lennon has confirmed that he is interested in Leeds United out of contract defender Aidan White.

White is still training with Leeds despite coming to the end of his contract at the end of June.

The 20 year old has already been linked with the Scottish champions this summer and speaking in the Daily Express, Lennon said, 'I am going with what I have unless we can get something in.

'He is a possibility and is one who interests us but that is as far as we have taken it so far.'

Leeds boss Neil Warnock admitted last week that he was still unsure what the future held for White despite the youngster returning for pre-season training at Thorp Arch last Wednesday.. Speaking on Yorkshire Radio after the first day back last week, Warnock said, 'Aidy`s offer has now expired, so I am not sure if he is just keeping himself fit. I just haven`t had time to talk to him because there has been too much else to do.'
