The English transfer window has now closed bringing an end to the summer long speculation surrounding Jermaine Beckford’s future.

Becks has been linked with an host of clubs throughout the summer, most of whom play in the Championship, but it was the latest rumour involving Bolton Wanderers that had Leeds United fans worried as we headed into the final few days. The rumour was that Gary Megson was preparing a last minute £3m swoop for Becks should he fail to sign another of his targets.

Beckford’s been an integral part of Leeds United’s early season success. So far we remain 100% in League One with Beckford scoring five in the first five games.

The news will bring some much welcomed harmony to Elland Road – at least until the next transfer window opens in January. Although there would be no point whatsoever selling Beckford in January as no right-minded club would pay anything for him, he would be able to sign a pre-contract with any club he chooses. He will undoubtedly remain at Elland Road until the end of the season though and that’s the main thing.

On the final day Leeds brought in 24-year old South-African striker Davide Somma who has been on-trial with us but only played behind closed doors so far. We’ve also loaned out Alan Sheehan to League One rivals Oldham Athletic, initially on a one month loan.
