'If It's Football, It's Vital'

McDermott - It was right thing to let duo leave

Leeds United boss Brian McDermott says he felt it was right to let Paul Green and Luke Varney leave the club this week.

Both left the club on loan this weekend with Green joining Ipswich Town and Varney joining Blackburn Rovers.

Speaking to LUTV, McDermott said, "They are players that are not playing and their contracts end at the end of this season.

"You have to give them opportunities. We have players in that area of the pitch and we felt they were down the pecking order, so we think it is the right thing to do."


Green hasn`t featured for Leeds since the defeat at Derby County on October 5th after being a regular in the side in the opening months of the season.

The midfielder has joined Ipswich on a 93-day loan period, which would take him beyond the end of the season and with him out of contract in the summer; it looks like he has played his last game for Leeds.

Green has made 46 appearances for Leeds since joining from Derby County in the summer of 2012.

Varney has joined Blackburn on loan for the remainder of the season with a view to a permanent move in the summer.

The striker was all set to join Blackburn in the final week of the transfer window with him refusing to play in the draw with Ipswich Town to avoid the possibility of picking up an injury that would scupper the deal.

Prospective new owner Massimo Cellino put a block on players leaving the club on the final day of the transfer window but it now seems he has had a change of heart.

Varney has made 50 appearances for Leeds since joining from Portsmouth in the summer of 2012.
