One that didn't get away - Ramon Nunez

Simon Grayson has today revealed how Leeds United were close to adding one more signing on transfer deadline day, but the deal fell through at the last minute.

The Leeds United manager had teased Whites fans on deadline day afternoon when he revealed there may be one additional signing to come, describing the unnamed individual as the ‘icing on the cake’ for his squad.

Leeds fans waited anxiously for news, but the revelation never came as the transfer window closed with only Ramon Nunez and Adam Clayton added to the squad.

Grayson today revealed that;

“We were close, very close, to bringing in another player, but the deal fell at the last hurdle, which was unfortunate because I thought he would have been a good signing for us.

“But at the last minute he decided he wanted to stay where he was, which of course he was entitled to do.

“We’re looking all the time. We’re looking at players for the January transfer window so it’s an ongoing thing.”

Grayson stops short of revealing who the player in question was leaving Leeds United fans to ponder who it might have been?
