Vital Leeds United continue to keep you up to date with all the rumours doing the rounds of the coming and goings during the January transfer window.

With the transfer window closing in just three days and Neil Warnock still saying he is desperate to bring in two or three players, we are now keeping you up to date with a daily round up of players linked with moves in and out of Elland Road.

Reading defender Kaspars Gorkss is being linked with a move to Leeds according to Sky Sports.

The experienced central defender was part of Neil Warnock`s Queens Park Rangers side that won the championship title in 2010 and he made it back-to-back Championship titles with Reading last season.

The Latvian international was a regular for Reading in the first half of this season in the Premier League but he has not featured since the 5-2 home defeat to Arsenal in mid-December.

Duncan Castles is reporting on Sulia Sports that Leeds are giving a trial to Patrick Otte.

The 21-year-old winger, who started his career at Middlesbrough, coming through their academy system, is currently playing for Fort Lauderdale Strikers in the North American League. He missed almost a year after suffering a Cruciate Knee Ligament injury in 2011.

Bradford City striker Nahki Wells is again being linked with Leeds in the Sun today.

The latest club to be linked with wantaway striker Luciano Becchio are Premier League side Aston Villa according to Talksport.

Becchio is also being linked with a move to the Turkish top-flight according to the Yorkshire Evening Post.

All the rumours that I put up have been in the national press, local press or websites such as,, and amongst others and not from sites where people just put up their wish list and make out that they have inside knowledge through their best mate`s uncle`s brother.
