Leeds United boss Neil Warnock believes the club have signed a player with potential after announcing the club announced a deal to bring on loan winger Ryan Hall to the club on a permanent basis.
Hall is set to sign a two and a half year deal when the transfer window opens next week and Warnock feels the 24-year-old has a bright future.
Speaking on the official website, Warnock said, ‘When we brought Ryan in I said I believe he is a player with potential for a big future.
Hall has made just five appearances for Leeds since joining on loan from Southend United in October.
The winger fell out with Southend manager Paul Sturrock in the summer after a proposed move to Peterborough United fell through at the end of the August transfer window.
Hall was frozen out at Roots Hall after a proposed move to championship side Blackpool fell through in September, after the two clubs had agreed a fee for the player.
Following the collapse of the deal, Southend chairman Ron Martin forced the player to train alone leaving him short of match fitness when he arrived at Elland Road in mid-October. ,em>”He had only played once this season and his match fitness, and bringing him up to speed was the biggest priority.
‘I’m sure during the length of his contract Ryan will have the opportunity to establish himself at this high level, and you can see that from his contribution at Huddersfield a few weeks ago.
‘It’s not just experienced players we are looking for to add to the squad, and if we feel there are youngsters like him available at the right prices we will look to the future as well,’ continued the Leeds boss.
Hall started his career with Warnock at Crystal Palace before being released in 2009 and dropping into non-league football.
Southend signed Hall in 2010 after impressing at non-league Bromley and he quickly earned a good reputation with the League Two side.
Hall scored 9 goals in his first season and he also contributed to 18 goals with assists.
The following season he was even better, scoring 14 and he led the way in the entire Football League with 20 assists.
He will now hope to get his chance at Elland Road.
