Neil Warnock today confirmed that a deal had been agreed for Leeds United to sign their fourth player from Portsmouth this summer.

Jason Pearce, Luke Varney, Jamie Ashdown and now David Norris will all be lining up at Elland Road this season as the Whites single-handedly try to lower Portsmouth’s wage bill and save the club from liquidation.

Earlier today, Portsmouth’s situation was described as “critical” by their administrators who list seven players Pompey must get off their books before the 10th of August if the club is to survive.

Alongside David Norris, the club must also find new homes for Greg Halford, Erik Huseklepp, Liam Lawrence, Dave Kitson, Tal Ben Haim and Nwankwo Kanu.

Elsewhere, Neil Warnock has admitted defeat in his bid to keep Robert Snodgrass at the club. The Scotland international is expected to complete a £3m move to Norwich City within the next 48 hours.
