Blackburn Rovers’ Keith Andrews and free agent Jonathan Spector are the latest names being linked with a move to Elland Road. 

According to Duncan Castles of the Sunday Times, Simon Grayson is trying to agree a season-long loan deal with Blackburn Rovers to bring the 30-year-old Keith Andrews to Leeds.

Castles also claims The Whites are considering signing 25-year-old Jonathan Spector who made 111 appearances for West Ham United between 2006 and 2011 before being released as a free agent at the end of last season.

Grayson looks set to face stiff competition for the signing of Spector however with Sky Sports linking the United States international with a move to Birmingham City.

The rumours seem to tie in quite nicely with the two midfield players Ken Bates told Leeds United fans the club was looking at earlier in the week. The fact neither of the players would cost the club any money adds further weight to Castles’ claims.
