Good Morning. It's Thursday 6th May, and here are the latest headlines from Elland Road...


Turkish outlet leak deal that Alioski asked to keep quiet

A Turkish media outlet have reported that Ezgjan Alioski has agreed to join Galatasaray in the Summer, but had asked the Turkish club not to announce it until after the season ends. Fotomac went on to say that the North Macedonia international turned down Leeds contract offer as the terms were not favourable. Obviously Alioski is fearful of an angry backlash from the Leeds fans about the move. If I were him I'd be angry that my future club could not keep their mouths shut util the end of the season.





Leeds line up experienced Turkish International midfielder

Fotomac also claim that Leeds are preparing a bid for a midfielder from Fenerbahce! 26-year-old Ozan Tufan is an experienced Turkish International with 59 caps, and nine goals to his name. He can play midfield, right wing, or right wing back. The report states Leeds want to get a deal done before the European Championships this Summer. Tufan has two years left on his contract.a contract with Fenerbahce until the summer of 2023 and the Turkish outfit will not want to let him leave for cheap.





Allardyce may be a good bet for Leeds

Carlton Palmer has suggested that Sam Allardyce could be a good replacement for Leeds, if Marcelo Bielsa quits in the summer. The lanky midfielder made over a hundred appearances for the Whites between 2004-07 and won 18 England Caps over his 21 year career.

If he does go, you know, there are plenty of good managers out there. I think West Brom are going to go down now, so Sam Allardyce, if they don’t give him the funds to do the job to get them back up, he’s going to become available. He might be a good bet for them. So you can’t automatically assume that Leeds are going to get relegated if Bielsa leaves, but you can’t also underestimate the job he’s done with that squad of players and the way that they play.

Palmer was also asked what he thought Bielsa would do, if offered the Spurs hot seat...

You want to better yourself. You want to get the top jobs, just like players want to go to top clubs, so it’d be a fantastic opportunity for him. “If Spurs come knocking, that’s a different ball game. That’s a great career opportunity for him. I’d be very surprised if Tottenham came knocking and he wasn’t prepared to go.




Whelan: Sign Wilson - He's better than Roberts.

Noel Whelan believes Leeds should make a move for Liverpool forward Harry Wilson. The 24 year old is surplus to requirements at Anfield, and the League Champions are keen to free up funds this Summer. He is currently on loan at Cardiff where he has twelve assists to his name, and has netted seven times in 36 appearances.

Wilson could be an option for us. He is better than Tyler Roberts. “When you are talking about a number 10, you need to be the star player. You need the one who creates, the one that opens up the door. He cannot do that on a regular basis. Wilson is a busy player, he has an eye for a pass, pace and a wonderful left-foot. He can adapt to a number of roles as well which is what Marcelo Bielsa likes.

Had to check it wasn't April 1st today. If nothing else, Carlton Palmer has given me a good chuckle over my breakfast. Bielsa to Spurs (no chance, he wouldn't have the control of the whole operation like he wants), and Big Sam...oh dear.

Turkish lad: Don't know anything of him, but if he is good enough then let's have him. Seems versatile and might be a good replacement for Klich.

Alioski: Goes with my best wishes. Important contract for him at this stage of his career. I would be p1ssed with my new club though for not keeping a lid on it.

Harry Wilson: His name sounds like an old-school footballer from the 50's. Definitely better than Roberts from when I've seen him play, but only adequate if we want to step up a level. It's a no for me. We need someone world class at #10, someone who can unpick defences like Brighton's.
