Simon Grayson has dismissed suggestions that Billy Paynter will leave Leeds United on loan to another Championship club.

Whilst unwillingly to let Paynter join another Championship team, the Leeds United manager revealed that a League One club has expressed an interest and that Leeds are currently considering their options.

Billy Paynter joined Leeds United on a free from Swindon Town at the end of the 2009-10 campaign – a season in which he was League One’s highest goalscorer with 26 goals in 44 appearances.

The striker failed to make the step-up to Championship football however and has managed only one goal in his 24 appearances for The Whites. His poor goal return led to Leeds United fans dubbing the Liverpool-born striker “Barn Door Billy”.
