Derby Are Smaller Than Leeds

Derby Are Smaller Than Leeds

Wise words from Wisey on the official site as he repeats that Paul Jewell can 'do one' and forget signing Jermaine Beckford for the Rams.

Wise said 'There's a lot of people looking at him, but the problem for them is that he loves this football club. He likes working with us and the lads, and he likes the environment. That's important to a player. I've no intentions of selling the kid.'

He also questions why the striker would want to go to Derby of all places when Leeds are a bigger club.

'If you're talking the big four or five then maybe it's different, but I'm not prepared to let him go to a place like Derby - and I'm not prepared to let him go anywhere.'

Chairman Ken Bates has also said the player is going nowhere.

Rams boss Paul Jewell has hit back saying: "I wouldn't say anything about Leeds United other than to say I have got no interest in Jermaine Beckford....He is having a decent season so far but, with all respect to Jermaine Beckford, I am looking for better players than that."
