With exactly one month to go until the transfer window opens, you’d think there would be more pressing matters for the news agencies and sites to report than potential moves, but alas, fans love nothing more than dreaming of what could be, so why shouldn’t the evil news agencies deliver that to them?

In the case of Leeds United, two players have already been churned out of the old rumour mill. The first, 30-year-old German goalkeeper Thorsten Stuckmann seems somewhat believable but will do little to fuel dreams of an automatic promotion push for Whites fans. The six and half foot giant has managed just one appearance for League One Preston and will be considered the first sign of another forgettable transfer window by the masses.

The second rumour may provide more room for optimism, as Leeds are rumoured by Sky Sports to be part of a Championship trio chasing Stevenage’s Lawrie Wilson.

Sky Sports claim that the 24-year-old has been instrumental in Stevenage’s rise from the Conference to League One although 9 goals in 132 appearances suggests he’s no Max Gradel. However he has topped Stevenage’s assist table for the last two seasons.
