Good Morning. It's Friday 24th January, and here are the latest headlines from Elland Road...
Poveda all set to sign today
Leeds have won the race to sign highly rated 20 year old Ian Poveda from Manchester City. The best way to describe his play is it is similar to Sami Saiz. The 20 year old who has represented England in all age groups from U16's fell out with the hierarchy at the Etihad over being dropped from Citeh's first team squad. It was decided by all parties that the rift could not be repaired, and Poveda was given the green light to leave the club.
Since then the 5ft 5 star has been exploring his options with a host of clubs keen on his signature. Yesterday is was revealed by Phil Hay that Poveda was undergoing a medical with Leeds. Furthermore he was spotted and had his picture taken with fans outside Elland Road yesterday afternoon.
Hull may be forced to part with star asset
Hull City boss Grant McCann has admitted that Jarrod Bowen may have to be sold, if the player refuses to accept the lucrative new deal offered to him by the club, according to the Daily Mirror. The 23 year old has been on fire this term netting 16 times in 28 appearances and six assists. His displays have also caught the attention of Newcastle and Leicester.
The latest forward apparently on Leeds radar is Nahki Wells. The 29 year old Bermudian International first caught the attention of the Whites seven years ago when Wells was at local neighbours Bradford City. Unfortunately they were unable to find sufficient funds, and Wells ended up at Huddersfield Town for 1.6m. This term, he has been on loan to QPR (from Burnley) with a handy ratio (excuse the pun) of 1 one in every two appearances (13 in 26).
Leeds remain odds on favourites to capture Andre Gray, but only as a back up plan.
