Leeds United chairman Ken Bates says a deal to sell an unnamed player this week fell through after the club he was due to move to failed to move on one of their own players.

Bates has said that a number of players would have to leave in January before manager Simon Grayson could add to his squad.

He has said that the squad is too big for the championship at 26-27 players.

It looked like one was ready to leave this week before falling through.

Speaking on Yorkshire Radio, Bates said, “We had one player who we thought was leaving us this week. His new club taking him depended on getting rid of another player, that deal fell through so now ours is on hold. It`s very frustrating and nothing we can do about it”

Andy O`Brien is one player rumoured to be on his way, with Bristol City leading the chase for the defender who is currently refusing to play for the club.
