Warren Feeney a possible January target TSS November 17, 2009 Leeds United 5 Comments Warren Feeney may get a second chance to sign for Leeds after failing a medical back in August. Feeney currently plays for Cardiff City but has failed to force his way into the first team and is set to be released in January, allowing him to join up with Leeds United if they so wish. Warren started his career at Elland Road but never made an appearence for the Whites. He was loaned out to Bournemouth and the move eventually became permanent. He spent three years at Bournemouth making over 100 appearences and scoring 36 goals. In 2005 Stockport County signed the Irishman for £45,000. He scored 15 goals in 31 appearences for Stockport, but was sold to Luton Town for £150,000 after just one season. At Luton, Feeney struggled to make much of an impact. Despite appearing 77 times from 2005-07, he only managed to find the back of the net 8 times. In 2007 Feeney joined Cardiff City, but has not enjoyed the best of times there either. He’s made just thirteen appearences for the side in total (some of which were as a sub) and never managed to find the back of the net in a competitive game. Warren has spent a lot of time out on loan to Swansea City and Dundee United where collectively he’s scored 12 in 37 games. I have to admit, I wasn’t blown away by his record the first time round and nothings changed since. He’s made just one appearence for Cardiff this season as a sub, so will be massively lacking in match fitness and for me, we don’t need another average striker. We need someone like Rickie Lambert from Southampton who will keep the goals coming even if/when Jermaine does leave. Feeney simply doesn’t strike me as that kind of player. However, in Grayson we trust. He’s made some good signings so far, so you have to give him the benefit of the doubt and hope he can get the best out of Warren Feeney if he does sign for Leeds. We’ve also got an Argentine centre-back on trial with the club. Not heard much about him in all honesty, but this seems like another position where we don’t need more bodies? Maybe Simon is planning to get rid of some deadwood in January too.
