LUFC New signing waiting for a phone call

LUFC New signing waiting for a phone call

Leeds United manager Brian McDermott says he still doesn`t know if Andrea Tabanelli is available for the first team squad.

The Italian joined Leeds on loan from Cagliari last Friday but Leeds are still waiting for ratification from the Football League.

Speaking at his press conference on Thursday, McDermott said, "We still don`t know if he will be available but we are hoping it will be resolved today (Thursday). I think they have made a decision but we still do not know."

The player was actually brought in by prospective new owner Massimo Cellino with McDermott having no knowledge of the player. "He has been put in a situation that is tough. If he gets clearance then he will be given respect and opportunity. I have seen clips and he looks like a good lad and he works hard so if he does eventually sign for us, he will get full respect," continued McDermott.

The 23-year-old only joined Cagliari last week from Cesena before quickly being loaned out to Leeds for the remainder of the season subject to Football League approval.

Tabanelli could bring some strange goal celebrations to the club, as you can see here from a goal scored during his time with Cesena.(Go to 2 minutes 10 seconds of this clip.
