Leeds lad linked

Leeds lad linked

With the papers unusually quiet this weekend we found ourselves linked with Leeds youngster Danny Rose. The People says England youth player Rose, 16, was the odd-boy-out in the deal which took Michael Woods and Tom Taiwo to Chelsea in a controversial transfer a year ago. He chose to stay but Toon chairman Freddy Shepherd is ready to splash out for the attacking midfielder, who is already starring for Leeds reserves. Leeds will look for about £2m in compensation, based on the cash they got from Chelsea for Woods and Taiwo, when chairman Ken Bates drove a hard deal after threatening FA action against the champions. The paper thinks we are expected to tie up the deal within the next few weeks to take Rose into the Premiership.

I'd pay anything to see the look on Papa Smurf Bates' face if we nicked the lad. Hate the robbing cockney to**er.

If he turns out as good as Milner I'd be happy with the fee. Great shout about p*ssing Bates off anarl.

Given we could buy some players who are going to make an impact straight away with that brass I wouldn't be wasting it on another Darren Ambrose type.
