Something is clearly amiss at Elland Road, how else do you explain four signings in just one day?
Hell freezing over, North Korea forming a democratic government, America outlawing guns – just three of a billion unlikely scenarios I’d have considered more likely than Leeds United signing four players in a single day.
Adding to the earlier announced deals of Andy Gray and Jamie Ashdown is former Portsmouth striker Luke Varney who signs on a two-year deal and Jamaican midfielder Rodolph Austin at a rumoured cost of around £300,000 each.
No details of Austin’s contract have yet been released by the club as he requires a work permit to officially complete the deal. Austin automatically qualifies for a work permit as a regular in the Jamaican international side so this should be a relatively straightforward process.
Following Leeds United’s 6-0 pre-season friendly victory over Tavistock, Neil Warnock said his “crucial signings” were yet to come.
