Matt Derbyshire

Matt celebrates Greek cup win with Olympiacos

After a quiet few days, Betfair has re-awoken and we’re blessed with yet another transfer link that’s unlikely to ever happen. This time, the online bookmakers have scoured the net in search of a possible player to link and returned to us grateful Leeds United fans with the news that Matt Derbyshire wants to return to England!

Those of you that haven’t already leapt into the air with joy should feel free to do so now.

Matt is currently 24 years of age and started his career at Blackburn Rovers, where in 63 league appearances, he managed just 10 goals. He left Blackburn on loan to Greek side Olympiacos in 2009, before signing a permanent four-year deal at the end of the season. Since joining the Greek side, Matt has made 26 appearances and scored 11 goals.

Betfair have obviously realised Leeds fans are growing sceptical of their constant links, adding that;

Leeds manager Simon Grayson has been linked with all sorts of strikers throughout the summer, including the seemingly Celtic-bound Gary Hooper and Middlesbrough’s Leroy Lita, but the arrival of Derbyshire could trump the lot.

I assume you all had Derbyshire at the top of your wish-list?

Andy O’Brien

Next up, we have a return to the Leeds United rumour mill for 31-year old Bolton Wanderers defender, Andy O’Brien.

O’Brien has made no secret of his desire to leave the Reebok and is currently being linked with a move to both Newcastle and Leeds. With Patrick Kisnorbo set to miss the start of the campaign, and Richard Naylor looking like his best days are behind him, this is one of those rumours that could have substance.

And finally…

We end with news that no one wants Andy Robinson, but Enoch Showunmi has somehow managed to find a team stupid enough to give him another chance. Andy’s agent tells us that there’s been no offers for the midfielder over the summer, and he may be set to stay at Leeds (but then, why would he leave with his salary?)

Enoch Showunmi meanwhile has somehow managed to find a new home at Tranmere Rovers. Clearly, the Scouse side either like to look like idiots, or their scouting department is in desperate need of a reshuffle?
