Leeds United midfielder Kalvin Phillips said that Leeds United has enough quality to end their poor run and that he is sure that they will turn things around. Indeed the Championship is in a poor run of form that has seen him only win one game out of five.
Leeds United made a strong start to the campaign and there were talks that the team can finally mount a serious push for promotion to the Premier League but things have changed for the worse in recent weeks. Their last result was against a weakend Brentford side on Saturday where they were held to a 1-1 draw. (more…)
Yorkshire Evening Post journalist Phil Hay does not believe Leeds United will make an approach to sign Robert Huth on a free transfer. The German has been without a club since being released from his Leicester City contract last summer and he recently suggested that he would be open to the prospect of playing for Marco Bielsa’s team.

However, speaking to the Inside Elland Road podcast, Hay has claimed that there is no chance of Huth making the switch to Yorkshire as he does not fit into the scheme of things under Bielsa, he said: “I have looked into this and from what I’ve been told there is no chance of him coming to Leeds, although he was angling for it.
Michael O’Neill, the manager of Northern Ireland describes Bailey Peacock-Farrell of Leeds United as “confident and assured” following the young full competitive international debut of goalkeeper. Whites no 1 Peacock-Farrell got its first competitive start for Northern Ireland in the UEFA Nations League hosting of Bosnia on Saturday afternoon, who made a 2-1 win at Windsor Park.
The second Bosnian goal came out from a mix-up between the defender Peacock-Farrell and Craig Cathcart whom Elvis Saric has beaten to the ball and also the one who latched on to the header of Cathcart towards his own goal ahead of rounding the Peacock-Farrell to double his lead side. It was admitted by the Peacock-Farrell that the outcome was really a tough result to take such a leading performance” however, 21-year-old was “big headed” to have made his cutthroat debut.
Elland Road, who perhaps had been heaving and seething like none other championships indeed positively revealed and got hopeful during the success of one promotion and the uneasiness of the other one. All the fans sporting home shirts similar to a man it seemed, they even ensured that atmosphere would be white hot even more than what stoke could have handled in a day. The newcomers who were champions were in fact be half-a-yard behind their current hosts and had to pay the price with a score line that reflects their opening salvo at their current level.
It was once that James McClean couldn’t easily find Benik Afobe for a much open goal at 1-0 down, could anyone believe in real that Stoke would be emerging in such a way with anything other than the defeat of opening-day. The team looked like the part on paper, but it required a major improvement if it was expected to live with so many clubs enjoying a crack at their reputation in the upcoming weeks. The only possibility of consolation was the Jack Butland sight towards committing an error which could just prevent Chelsea should they be considering a new goalkeeper in the next upcoming days.
Leeds United have reached an agreement with the Frenchman Toumani Diagouraga to terminate his contract. Yorkshire Evening Post reporter Phil Hay on Thursday confirmed through his personal Twitter account on Thursday that the “deal is done” for Diagouraga, to put an end to his one-and-a-half year stay at Elland Road.
It was stated that the agreement will be met on Friday and that some interested teams are already queueing to welcome his signature if he eventually becomes a free agent. Hay claims that Championship sides Barnsley and Bristol City are the first teams on the line for the 30-year old midfielder while League One outfit MK Dons are not left out in the race as well.
