Yorkshire latest: England international linked to Leeds; Wednesday defender wants Prem move

Leeds United, Sheffield Wednesday, Sheffield United and Doncaster Rovers all feature in this Yorkshire round-up.

We bring you news of all the biggest stories to break involving the Yorkshire clubs over the last 24 hours.

1) Jack Butland could be set for another loan at Leeds

Jack Butland has said that he would be happy to be loaned out from Stoke City again next season, if Asmir Begovic stays on as number one.

The Daily Express are reporting that Leeds could be set to make a move for the England international goalkeeper, after he enjoyed a successful loan spell at Elland Road last season.

"If Asmir stays and I'm not playing, a loan is massively important," Butland said.

2) Gary McAllister could be set to return as Leeds boss

Gary McAllister is set to be interviewed for the vacant Leeds United manager’s job and could be set for his second stint as manager of the club, according to the BBC.

McAllister managed Leeds in 2008 for 11 months before being sacked, but is being lined up by Massimo Cellino as a potential candidate to take over the reins at Elland Road.

3) Oguchi Onyewu would like to move back to Newcastle United.

Oguchi Onyewu has hinted that his future may lie away from Hillsborough.

The American centre-back was offered a new contract at the end of last season, but has yet to put pen to paper and seems to have his heart set on a move back to the Premier League – specifically with Newcastle United.

He said, in an interview with the Sheffield Star: “Right now no decisions have been made but I’m aiming to stay in the UK.

“It’s always a possibility that I will stay at Wednesday.

“But I want to weigh my options up before I make I final decision.

“Who knows, maybe I’ll have the opportunity to play for Newcastle again. You never know.”

4) Chris Basham set to play important role for Sheffield United

Chris Basham, who completed a transfer from Blackpool to Sheffield United yesterday, will play an important role in the Blades’ campaign next year.

Manager Nigel Clough has revealed that Basham will be a regular starter at Brammall Lane and that his versatility doesn’t mean that he has been brought in as a utility man that can cover all positions.

Clough said: “There was a lot of interest in Chris.

“He can fill a variety of different roles, but we will look to pin him down to one position and only use him elsewhere in an emergency.

“We’ll see where that is during pre-season and depending on the outcome of other bits of business we are looking to do. But Chris will be in our eleven somewhere.”

5) One Direction star to takeover at Doncaster Rovers

Louis Tomlinson will be announced as co-chairman of Doncaster Rovers, the Daily Mail has revealed.

Tomlinson, of One Direction fame, has been a fan of the club since his childhood and is now set to take over as chairman.

He will announce the deal at One Direction’s next concert in-front of a sell-out Wembley crowd.
