Leeds United boss Neil Warnock says he had a number of players being watched on Saturday as he looks to start his rebuilding of the Leeds squad.
Warnock was without assistants Mick Jones and Ronnie Jepson in the dugout at Cardiff on Saturday with the two on important coaching missions and Warnock says he had a team of scouts at looking at players ahead of a busy summer in the transfer market.
Speaking on Yorkshire Radio, Warnock said, “I thought it was important to have Mick Jones and Ronnie Jepson out looking at players on Saturday. I had five or six others out watching players because we want to do business as quickly as we can in the summer.
“We felt it was important to go out and look at these players.”
Despite wanting to bring in players quickly following the conclusion of the season next weekend, Warnock believes he will remain patient to ensure he brings in the right players that will hopefully lead Leeds to promotion next season. “It is all about being patient and striking whilst the iron is hot. We have targets and it changes all the time. There are people we are keeping. There are agents ringing up all the time. I have to get players who want to put on the shirt on and there is a certain type of player I will be looking to bring into Leeds,” added Warnock.
Warnock is already preparing himself for what he calls ‘major surgery` of the Leeds squad.
He has already released three players this week with Mika Vayrynen, Ben Parker and Darren O`Dea leaving the club.
Warnock is expected to announce his released and retained list in the days following the final game of the season against Leicester City next Saturday.
