We are now just four days away from the January transfer window closing and the rumours linking Leeds United with a number of players continue.

I will start this week with those leaving. Jonny Howson has finally completed his move to Norwich City. There was no surprise when it was announced that he had moved for an undisclosed fee.

The biggest worry now is we will lose any more of our other main players in the side.

Robert Snodgrass would probably be the biggest loss with Leicester City and West Ham linked with the Scottish international.

West Ham have reportedly had a £4 million bid turned down by Leeds.

Ben Parker was linked with a loan move to Carlisle United earlier in the week and he signed for the Cumbrian side on loan until February 25th.

Alex Bruce has been linked with a surprise move to American MLS side LA Galaxy, something that manager Simon Grayson has confirmed.

The players being linked with Leeds have slowed down.

Former striker Jermaine Beckford has been linked with a return after being told by Leicester City that he is free to find another club.

Ken Bates in his weekly interview on Yorkshire Radio confirmed that he had been contacted regarding the availability of Beckford.

Beckford`s Leicester teammate Richie Wellens has also been linked with a move to Leeds.

Estonian international defender Enar Jaager has also been linked with Leeds this week and he is also being chased by Scottish Premier League side Glasgow Rangers, where he had a trial last week.

Swansea City attacking midfielder Stephen Dobbie has been linked with a loan move to Elland Road.

Stoke City defender Danny Higginbotham could be on his way out of the Britannia Stadium. Leeds along with Nottingham Forest, Derby County and Reading have been linked with him.

Just over 72 hours now to go until the window closes. Will we see any more players sign for the club and will we see some off the deadwood moving out Of Elland Road?

Do not worry on Wednesday we will hear all the excuses. We were so close, they wanted too much money, they had agreed to sign but???.

Also, we are not selling anymore of our first team players – Watch this space.

If you see or hear of anything then feel free to post them in the comments box at the bottom of this article.
