A handful of reputable news sources are suggesting that Neil Warnock is growing tired at the lack of funds available to sort out Leeds United’s injury woes. Heavily linked with Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Jermaine Jenas, a dispute over wages is allegedly causing Neil Warnock problems.
Sky Sports have reported that Neil Warnock is eager to ease his injury woes in midfield by bringing a player in on loan to act as first team cover for the injured David Norris and Paul Green. With high levels of experience at the top level, Jermaine Jenas would represent a great loan move by Neil Warnock. However, the National are reporting that Tottenham Hotspur are only prepared to pay for a small percentage of the players wages, leaving relations with Ken Bates and Neil Warnock sour and dysfunctional.
Having allegedly already walked once, until his son persuaded him otherwise, Neil Warnock will have to bide his time if he is to accomplish what he wants to achieve at Leeds United. Sadly, at 63 – Neil Warnock does not have time on his hands and was even quoted as saying ‘I think you need Mick (Jones) and me, more than we need you’ which grew a rye smile whilst in front of fans at the fans forum which recently took place at the Nicky Chapman Suite.
Another frustrating and enduring time for Leeds United fans – as hopes of signing an experience Premiership player could prove to fall on flat ground as questions still remain as to whether the club can actually afford any more additional signings.
Sky Sports are also currently claiming that along with many other clubs, Leeds United are on the trail of signing Stoke City striker Mamady Sidibe on loan. The 32-year-old has not played in two years – bringing into question at how cash strapped Leeds United are, when it comes to even signing players on loan.
With Ross McCormack and Luciano Becchio seemingly working at ease with other, I have serious doubts of whether bringing in Mamady Sidibe will do anything positive for the side, and will more than likely bring untold upset to a more than happy apple cart.
