LUFC Should Leeds be trying to keep Luke Varney?

Luke Varney looks all set to leave Leeds United this week after refusing to play in the game with Ipswich Town on Tuesday night.

Varney looks all set to sign for fellow championship side Blackburn Rovers and his reasons for pulling out of the game with Ipswich were that he did not want to risk injury, something that would scupper the deal.

It has been a up and down eighteen months for Varney since his arrival from Portsmouth in the summer of 2012. After scoring on his debut against Shrewsbury Town in the League Cup, he struggled and after a poor run in the side, he became a target of the boo-boys.

By mid-September he was amongst the substitutes and on the rare occasion he got an opportunity, he failed to take his chance. He didn`t endear himself to the Leeds fans when he refused to applaud them at the end of the game with Sheffield Wednesday.

He did get back into the starting eleven and things looked to be improving until a sending off at Millwall in early November saw him make just three substitute appearances in the next twelve games.

Varney did improve in the second half of last season. A first start in almost three months in the FA Cup win at Birmingham City seemed to transform his season and he was a regular in the side until the end of the season as he netted five times, including the opener against Tottenham Hotspur in the FA Cup. He was also the two-goal hero in Brian McDermott`s first game in charge against Sheffield Wednesday.

He started this season well, scoring twice in his first six games as he was a regular in the Leeds side but after a few poor performances towards the end of September, he has made just two appearances since. His last appearance came against Leicester City earlier this month when he won the sponsors man of the match award, as he competed with giant Leicester defender Wes Morgan in a fascinating battle. That game showed what he has to offer when he is on his game.

That now looks like being his last appearance. So how do you feel about the imminent departure of Varney, who has been a bit of a marmite signing since his arrival?

Will you be glad to see him leave the club or do you wish Leeds could persuade him to stay?

That is the question on our latest poll on Vital Leeds.
