LUFC McDermott frustrated in loan search

LUFC McDermott frustrated in loan search

Leeds United boss Brian McDermott says he continues to be frustrated in the loan transfer market.

McDermott is desperate to bolster his attacking options having seen his side net just ten goals in eleven championship games so far this season.

The Leeds boss would have hoped to have added to his squad during the international break but he admits he needs a break having seen a number of approaches rebuffed by managers.

Speaking in the Yorkshire Evening Post , McDermott said, "We need something to happen for us on that front. I`ve been watching games, I`ve spoken to five or six managers and all of them have told me that the players I`m interested in aren`t available.

"I`m trying to find what we need and that`s my frustration at the moment. When it comes to loans you`re in the hands of other people and I`m really just waiting for something to give."


Leeds have been reportedly keen to bring young Manchester United striker Will Keane to Elland Road. McDermott watched Keane play and score in a behind closed doors friendly last week.

McDermott must decide who to play up front when Birmingham City visit Elland Road on Saturday. Ross McCormack has played in a more advanced role in recent games and he is the clubs leading goalscorer this season with five goals in all competitions.

Luke Varney is the only other player to have netted more than one this season and he has been rested for the past two games.

Matt Smith and Dominic Poleon netted their first championship goals of the season in the past month whilst summer signing Noel Hunt is still waiting for his first goal in Leeds colours.
