Good Morning. Its Monday 13th January, and here are the latest headlines from Elland Road...

Adams move to Elland Road will come at a cost

Communication between Victor Orta and the hierarchy at St Mary's are believed to be at an advanced stage regarding bringing Che Adams to Elland Road. Although Saints Manager Ralph Hasenhuttl has made his feelings clear that he does not want to lose the 23 year old hitman, the chain of command have been ready to negotiate.

Leeds will have to pay the South Cost club £1m, and must sign him permanently in the Summer. It is not known at this stage what fee the Whiters will have to part with in the Summer, but rest assured Southampton have the upper hand. Adams moved to St Marys last Summer from Birmingham City for a fee of £15m,

It has been revealed by the Sun this Morning that Newcastle are willing to part with Dwight Gayle for £8m. The 29 year old has proved how clinical he can be in the Championship but with only nine appearances under his belt this term, how long would it take him to get up to speed?

Adams for £16m or Gayle for £8m. Who would you go for?

One win in seven, as the Owls swoop to victory

Leeds slipped to their 5th defeat of the season against Yorkshire rivals Sheffield Wednesday at the weekend, as the gap between the automatic promotion slots and the play offs narrowed to six points. For a local derby with so much at stake, the game was atrocious. The atmosphere both on and off the pitch were as flat as a pancake. You'd find more life at a Gareth Gates concert.

Two late goals from Murphy and Nuhiu, (their only shots on target) were enough to give the Owls their first points in 5 league games. 5 from the last 6 goals Leeds have conceded were from oppositions first shot at goal. Who's at fault? It's easy to blame Casilla, but can you say hat either goals were well defended?

Is Bamford a striker? If Adams is signed, will he still play second fiddle to Bamford?

Leeds no longer have the best goal difference in the Championship. That honour no belongs to Brentford, and former fans favourite Pontus Jansson with a goal difference of twenty three.
