Please God, send me a clean sheet

Responding to some fans disappointment after a quiet January transfer window for Leeds United, Simon Grayson has admitted he was hoping things would have turned out a little differently but that he headed into the window seeking only ‘quality players’ with Premier League experience and that he wasn’t going to settle for second best.

Presumably speaking about Michael Johnson, Simon Grayson added that “I thought I was going to get a deal with a player at one stage and then his club changed their minds.” It is believed Manchester City were concerned about Johnson being thrown straight into match action after a lengthy spell on the sidelines, and decided to cancel the deal at the last moment.

True to form, Grayson left the Leeds United fans guessing by revealing he was close to landing a couple of ‘big name signings’ who may yet join the club when the emergency loan window opens in a weeks time.
