LEEDS RECEIVE SNODGRASS BID
Leeds United have acknowledged that they have received a bid from Premier league club Norwich city for the services of midfielder Robert Snodgrass. However, manager Neil Warnock has said that the offer is too low for them to even consider it. Robert Snodgrass has emerged as a real target for the Premier league club, who were looking to stay in the Premier league. It is often acknowledged that the second season is the most difficult to survive in the Premier league. The newly appointed former Birmingham manager Chris Hughton has been looking at various Championship players in such a way that the club will be able to afford their contracts even if they go down.
The 24-year-old Robert Snodgrass, who was recently made the captain of the club by Neil Warnock, is the latest player to be linked with Norwich. Neil Warnock has indeed confirmed that the Premier league club have made an official offer for the player, but they have not considered it due to the fact that it was well below their valuation. Warnock has said that he expects Norwich to come with an improved offer for the 24-year-old midfielder. Warnock has also revealed that he is looking to sign Robert Snodgrass on a long-term deal.
“It’s been made public that they’ve made a bid, but from our point of view it’s not what we’re looking for. It’s difficult when players get their heads turned but I’d like to keep Rob. Ross has got many people who like him, there’s probably five clubs vying for him at the moment. There’s a couple of clubs that have spoken to Aidy. We want him to stay here but have to reach an agreement with his advisors that he’s happy with as well,” said the former QPR manager Warnock regarding the future of Robert Snodgrass.

O’BRIEN REFUSES TO PLAY
Leeds United manager Simon Grayson has said that the club’s defender Andy O’Brien will not play for the club ever again. Defender Andy O’Brien refused to play for the club in the match against Burnley, which has provoked a furious response in the same manner as it did for the situation with Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez.
Leeds United staged a dramatic comeback in the match against Burnley, but the refusal to play on the part of Andy O’Brien has infuriated the manager Simon Grayson. Speaking to the media after the match, Grayson revealed that Andy O’Brien has played his last match for the club.
Andy O’Brien has played for the likes of Newcastle and Bolton in the past, but Simon Grayson has revealed that the 32-year-old’s career at Elland Road has come to an end. After the 2-1 win over Burnley, Simon Grayson said “Andy O’Brien came to me on Friday afternoon and simply told me that he didn’t want to play any more for this football club. It was a shock on Friday but he won’t play for this football club as long as I am here. It’s disgraceful. It has come as a shock, especially given I have backed him both publicly and privately over the last few weeks.”
Robert Snodgrass was the main architect of Leeds United’s comeback, as he scored twice in the final few minutes to help Leeds United keep up their promotion challenge. Earlier, Jay Rodriguez had given the lead to Burnley in the 10th minute. It looked like Jay Rodriguez’s was going to be enough for Burnley to win the match and get all three points, but Robert Snodgrass had other ideas as he scored twice in the last 10 min to give Leeds an unlikely victory. Burnley boss Eddie Howe said that Leeds were lucky to win the match.
