Ramon Nunez deal extended and Leicester join race for Man City midfielder TSS January 12, 2011 Leeds United 16 Comments Despite making just two appearances as a substitute, Ramon Nunez has been handed an extended deal at Elland Road that will seeing him adding to his impressive tally of Leeds United reserve team starts. The 25-year old Honduran International was widely expected to depart when his short contract with Leeds United ran out at the end of this of this month, but Simon Grayson and the Thorp Arch staff must have seen something in him to agree to another four and a half months of wages. Meanwhile, Leeds United continue to be linked with Manchester City midfielder Michael Johnson as Leicester City are added to the list of clubs believed to be in the race for his signature. The 22-year-old returned to match action for City’s reserves on Tuesday night as he continues to recover from a serious knee injury that halted his progress at Man City. Johnson has already admitted that Leeds United would be his ideal choice as it’s the club he supported as a boy. Whether his continual injury problems will deter Grayson from making an approach or not remains to be seen.
