Yorkshire latest: Leeds want 16-goal attacker; Hull join race for Sheffield United defender

We bring you the latest news involving Leeds United, Sheffield United, Barnsley and Doncaster Rovers.

We bring you all the biggest news involving clubs in Yorkshire that has broken in the last 24 hours.

1) Leeds United looking to sign Chuks Aneke

Leeds United are hoping to bring Arsenal starlet Chuks Aneke to the club this summer, according to reports.

Aneke spent last season out on loan at Crewe Alexendra and rapidly established himself as one of League One’s best attackers.

He scored 16 goals in a productive season, where his physicality and raw power stood out.

Aneke is a free-agent this summer, with his deal at Arsenal expiring, and Leeds are thought to be leading the race to sign the England under-19 international.

2) Millwall to beat Leeds to Byron Webster

The Western Gazette are reporting that Millwall are on the verge of completing a deal for Yeovil Town defender, Byron Webster, beating Leeds and Ipswich to his signature.

Webster was a mainstay in a Yeovil side who were relegated from the Championship last season, but his individual performances were enough to convince the trio to lodge bids.

It seems as if 27-year-old has chosen to join Ian Holloway’s side, though, and the Millwall boss was delighted with his decision.

He said: “I think he [Webster] will improve our squad’s strength. We’re trying to improve the goals against column, so to do that you’ve got to stop goals going in.

“Hopefully someone like Byron can step up to the plate for us. I think he’s in our bracket of the right age and wants to improve his career having just had one season in the Championship.”

3) Hull City join the race for Harry Maguire

Hull City are hoping to sign Harry Maguire from Sheffield United, according to the Hull Daily Mail.

Maguire had looked set for a move to Championship outfit Wolverhampton Wanderers, but Hull have now entered discussions to sign the centre-back.

The powerful defender has established himself as one of the Football League’s hottest properties and a bid of over £2 million will be required to persuade Sheffield United to allow him to leave the club.

4) Paul Dickov hints at new additions at Doncaster Rovers

Doncaster Rovers manager Paul Dickov has suggested that the club are expecting a busy transfer window, despite very little activity so far.

Rovers were relegated on the final day of last season and are now hoping to strengthen their squad for an immediate return to the Championship.

And Dickov has revealed, to the club’s official site, that he has already identified his targets for next season.

“It’s busy,” he said.

“I know a lot of people will be looking and seeing that it doesn’t seem like there’s a lot going on but behind the scenes there’s a lot of phone calls and a lot of meetings.

“I’m not one for announcing names or positions or clubs because I think it can come back and bit you on the bum a little bit. What we are doing is working ever so hard, hopefully before we start back on 30th June, we’ll have a few players in place by then.”

5) Tomasz Cywka has new contract offer withdrawn

Polish midfielder Tomasz Cywka will not be staying with Barnsley next season because he took too long to decide whether to accept their contract offer.

Cywka was offered a new deal at the end of last season, but his delay in making up his mind whether to stay with the Tykes or not has led to the club allowing him to leave.

Reports had come out that the 25-year-old had rejected an offer to stay at the club, but a spokesperson today revealed that they were false.

“There’s no truth in the reports that Tomasz Cywka rejected his contract, the club withdrew its offer to him because he had taken too long to decide” he said.
