Good Morning. It's Thursday 23rd January, and here are the latest headlines from Elland Road...
Leeds throw everything but the kitchen sink at Adams deal
In a desperate bid to secure the signature of Che Adams, Leeds threw everything but the kitchen sink at Southampton, in a last audacious bid to get their attention. A package of £20m on the proviso Leeds go up, along with a loan fee believed to be £3m was put forward at the St Mary's Stadium.
Adams is yet to find the back of the net in 18 appearances following his 15m transfer from St Andrews. Surely this would mean that his value would have dropped significantly, yet the Saints refuse to move. Saints reporter Dan Sheldon was quoted as saying...
Saints position on Che Adams remains the same - there's no interest in letting him go. There is a growing sense of bemusement behind the scenes as to why Leeds are continuing to pursue Adams when they've been firmly told it's a deal that won't happen.
With just one week until the transfer window slams shut, have Leeds once again left it too late to secure the signatures they need?
Whites pull off major kit deal with Adidas
Leeds have pulled off a major coup by securing a new kit deal with Adidas when their current arrangement with Kappa runs out at the end of the season! The German sportswear giants have penned a deal with the West Yorkshire club whether they remain in the Championship, or are promoted, although the deal is worth more if the Whites reach the Promised land.
Gone are the days of Puma, Diadora and Macron. Is this another sign that Leeds have outgrown the Championship? Leeds are also rumoured to be looking for a new shirt sponsor with the existing deal with 32Red expiring at the end of the season. Who would you like to see as the new shirt sponsor?
