Good Morning. It's Friday 19th January, and here are the latest headlines from Elland Road...

Gnonto's future expected to be Hammered out shortly

Wilfred Gnonto's 17 month tenure as a Leeds player looks to be coming to an end, with multiple reports suggesting he is set to join West Ham. The 20 year old has not been able to replicate his early form of 22/23, and has slipped further down the pecking order as time has gone on. He tried to force a move to Everton last Summer, and went on strike after his demands were not met.

He quickly made up with Daniel Farke, and apologised for his actions, but his form continues to be mediocre at best, therefor it may be best for all parties concerned if he departs. A swap deal may be on the cards. Leeds are keen on contract rebel Ben Johnson. As a left back, he is highly thought of, but after only just getting rid of Djed Spence, do Leeds really need another disruptive influence in the dressing room?

Leeds linked with Luton reject

Leeds have been strongly linked with a move for Ryan Giles, after news broke that Luton Town were amenable to letting him leave Kenilworth Road this month. The 23 year old left back only joined the Hatters last Summer in a £5.2m move from Wolves. Prior to that, the Molineux prospect had been out on loan eight times. Nobody loves a good loan move than Leeds, but this one could have repercussions!

It has been rumoured that Luton want an obligation to buy clause inserted in the contract, meaning Leeds would be stuck with him if the move doesn't work out. With ten clubs on his CV since turning pro in 2018, surely this will be an avenue even Leeds will not pursue!

Leeds contemplating loan move for Liverpool starlet

Leeds are contemplating a loan move for Liverpool starlet Calvin Ramsay. The 20 year old right back has just been recalled from his loan move at Preston, after managing just one start, and 132 minutes of game time for the entire season thus far!

Leeds are light at right back after seeing Djed Spence and Luke Ayling depart this month. Although not a particularly exciting signature, he would at least provide cover should anything happen to Archie Gray!

Think we need to recruit the FC Zurich negotiator

An Orta antibody perhaps

That’s the closest anyone has got to answering my question.
I suppose I was saying we should be keeping and not selling. Not enough return all things considered

Say ballpark figure for 20m 25m & 30m
No one knows ...
