Jermaine Beckford does not appear to be in any particular hurry to leave Leeds United, having been named in Dennis Wise’s 20-man pre-season tour squad that departs for Germany on Tuesday.
Beckford spent the second half of the season on loan at Scunthorpe, chipping in with 8 goals for The Irons as they fired their way into the Championship as the eventual league winners. It was anticipated that the former Wealdstone forward would be leaving Leeds to re-join Scunthorpe this summer, yet has popped up at Leeds a number of times, seemingly in the plans of the Leeds management.
Speaking to the official website, boss Dennis Wise said of Beckford: “Jermaine is like a breath of fresh air, He looks alive and looks alert.”
Holding onto a player that managed 8 goals since January in League One would surely be seen as a major coup for Leeds having lost a large number of players following the clubs administration, and subsequent relegation to the third tier of English football for the first time in their history.
