WARNOCK STICKS BY SQUAD
Leeds United manager Neil Warnock has said that he will not be bringing in a number of players to the club over the next few months. Leeds United have already brought in a number of players using the loan system, and the manager has said that he does not plan to bring in any more.
Leeds United have been chasing promotion all season and they recently sacked manager Simon Grayson in their quest to do so. Former QPR manager Neil Warnock was immediately appointed in place of Simon Grayson. He has taken upon a Leeds United side that is currently in the 10th position in the table, many points behind the play-off position, which realistically seems to be the target as of now.
However, Leeds United have just one victory to show in the last few matches and the pressure is certainly on Neil Warnock to deliver the results. There have been calls for Leeds United to sign players from bigger clubs from the Premier league on a loan deal, but the manager has recently said that he does not plan to bring in any more players on a loan deal. Neil Warnock has said that the commitment shown by the loan players is one of the main reasons for him to not look at the prospect of loan players being solution to the club’s problems.
“Before pre-season, you have got to get people who care. No disrespect to loan players, you do get good ones. But when the chips are down and you have to put your head in, loan players – quite rightly so – have got to think about their own future,” Neil Warnock said when asked about the possibility of players arriving on a loan deal from now till the end of the season to Leeds United.
Warnock has made a good start without any more loan players, with leeds rising up the table and set to make a real push for the automatic promotion spots. The best Championship betting odds make them just 6/1 to go up this season, though those odds shorten to 2/1 if you bet on them making it up to the Premier League this year or next.
