The ‘silly season’ is upon us and we at We All Love Leeds would like to contribute in our own small way. Once a week we will post the latest rumours from legitimate sources, ones that we have heard but please feel free to leave your own rumours in the comments section at the bottom.
Jermaine continues to be connected to a move back home. Currently contracted to Leicester City, Beckford spent time on loan at Huddersfield Town last season and is widely tipped to return there this summer, although he would personally prefer a return to Leeds.
Adam Le Fondre
It was rumoured that Brian McDermott was interested in re-uniting with Reading striker Le Fondre and the rumours haven’t abated, however Reading chiefs have said that new manager Nigel
Adkins is under no pressure to sell any of their players.
The Jamaican born winger is being touted as the replacement for Robert Snodgrass. Humphrey currently plays for Motherwell in Scotland and isn’t considered to be high on McDermott’s wanted winger list. Rangers are said to be closing in on a deal for him.
Kilgallon has been released by Sunderland and could be the ideal man to provide competition for places in central defence. A move to his first club could also be appealing to him.
Leeds have been linked with the £1million rated Mills in recent weeks. He signed for Bolton last summer but has featured sporadically during the campaign. He would link up for the second time with McDermott if the deal comes through. Bolton manager, Dougie Freedman is happy to sell.
Surprisingly released by West Brom this summer and constantly linked with Elland Road, Thomas could be one of the wingers we need. Following a successful loan spell with us last season, Thomas’ agent said that a number of clubs including Leeds were interested in signing him permanently.
