FL transfer latest: Champions League winner to Leeds? Wednesday beaten to striker

Julio Cesar Brazil

Queens Park Rangers goalkeeper interests Leeds United, Doncaster Rovers beat Sheffield Wednesday to Southampton striker, Bolton Wanderers striker on the move, Derby County sign Liverpool trialist and Cardiff City defender to Sheffield United.

1) Betting has been suspended on former Champions League winner Julio Cesar reportedly interesting Leeds United's new potential owners.

The 34-year-old goalkeeper was signed by Queens Park Rangers in 2012, which was at the time one of the most outstanding transfers in World football due to his reputation.

Cesar's time in London has been far worse than anyone envisaged and now is asked to watch the game, rather than play it.

Leeds United already have a very capable goalkeeper in Paddy Kenny and signing a goalkeeper is not likely to feature high on Brian McDermott's priority list. However, with a potential change of ownership it could be wholesale changes all-round including the manager,

2) Highly-credible journalist Sean Taylor has confirmed via a tweet that Billy Sharp turned down a move to Hillsborough to join up with Paul Dickov at his former club.

It's unsurprising that Billy Sharp would favour a move to Doncaster after spending a couple of happy years there, building up his goalscoring reputation.

Paul Dickov has pulled off something of a coup to land the frontman as he still known as one of the most potent strikers in the Football League.

3) Swansea City are currently in talks with Bolton Wanderers over a potential deal with their striker David Ngog,

The 24-year-old has become something of a comical figure for Botlon fans and interest from Premier League Swansea has come as quite a shock.

The former France U21 international has netted just three times in the Championship this season and four in all competitions. And having previously struggled to make the grade, it's questionable what the Welsh club see in him.

4) Derby County have completed the signing of highly-rated Dutch goalkeeper Kelle Roos.

 

The conference keeper had a long list of suitors and even had trials at Premier League Liverpool before sealing his move to the iPro Stadium on a 2-year-contract for a reported bargain £25k.

Initially set for a role on the bench, or in the development side - it certainly makes competition for places in the squad heat-up, with currently seven first team goalkeepers on the books.

5) And finally in perhaps one of the most bizarre transfer developments of the day, was former Derby County Player of the Year spurning interest from Championship clubs to join League One strugglers Sheffield United.

 

9-months ago he was considered one of the brightest talents in the Football League, persuading newly promoted Cardiff City finally nailing down their long-term target for an estimated £1.5m

Now it looks like he could be see out the end of his season on loan to Sheffield United in a desperate effort to keep the Blades from the drop-zone and away from a surprise relegation.
