Most wanted! Burnley, Middlesbrough & QPR hunt Killa TSS May 25, 2010 Leeds United 45 Comments Leeds’ highly rated, central midfielder is once again in demand as Burnley, Middlesbrough and QPR queue up to make bids. Said to be valued in the region of £3,000,000, Leeds will once again have to fend off advances if they’re to keep the influential Australian at Elland Road, after a summer of speculation last year had him linked with Doncaster Rovers. Killa, who is one of Leeds’ younger players at 24 has had an impressive couple of seasons at Elland Road and has so far made over 80 appearances for the Whites since joining from Birmingham City for a fee of £150,000 in 2008. Neil’s early life in football was spent in Australia, but his family chose to move to England to maximise the youngsters chances of making it professionally. Killa found a place in Arsenal’s youth team where he honed the clever passing skills we see today. He went on to play for the Australian youth team and is now a fully fledged international player. Hard to see anyone having a bid accepted for Killa since he’s become such an integral part of the first team squad. A couple of little injury problems – most notably at the start of the last two campaigns – have sometimes left him looking on from the bench, but overall, he’s become one of our most consistent players. Killa is also a big hit with the fans who admire his determination to keep the ball on the deck and play a passing game, rather than the hoof-ball nonsense Leeds often resort to. The only way I can see Killa leaving Elland Road is if Simon Grayson needs the money to fund the purchase of another player, but even then, it’s an unlikely move as Larry is a big fan of the Australian and must consider him a big part of our plans for next season. If Burnley, Middlesbrough and QPR are in such desperate needs of a new midfielder, we do have a few clearance bargains on offer that we’d gladly sell to them for a reasonable price.
