Leeds United East Stand

We bring you the latest news from Leeds United, Huddersfield, Sheffield Wednesday, Barnsley and Doncaster Rovers.

1) United close on deal for Roma midfielder 

Leeds United are edging closer towards sealing a deal for Roma midfielder Federico Viviani

The Whites were expected to complete a proposed loan deal for the 22-year-old yesterday, before minor contractual issues momentarily stalled proceedings. 

However the Italian is very much keen on a switch to England, and despite of the hold up the Roma man's move to Elland Road is apparently immanent

2) Barnsley sign former Chelsea goalkeeper

The Tykes have completed a deal to bring Ross Turnbull to Oakwell. 

The 29-year-old left Chelsea for Doncaster Rovers in 2013, but after just one season with Rovers, Turnbull has decided to make the short journey across Yorkshire to join up with Danny Wilson at Barnsley. 

Turnbull is the second goalkeeper Barnsley have signed this summer, following the capture of Adam Davies from Sheffield Wednesday last month. 

3) Wednesday keen on Slovenian defender 

Sheffield Wednesday have invited Slovenian international Dejan Kelhar back to Hillsborough for a second trial period, after the 30-year-old impressed in a pre-season friendly earlier this week. 

Stuart Gray - who seems to be almost set on signing the player -  said; “He's is an experienced player. His reading of the game is good and he has conducted himself well in training and slotted in very well with the other lads.”

The defender has just one month left on his contract at Red Star Belgrade. 

4) Huddersfield set to hang on to Clayton

The Terriers could be set to hang on to midfielder Adam Clayton following reports that Middlesbrough manager Aitor Karanka is prepared to give up the chase for the 25-year-old. 

Karanka is reported to be willing to turn to other targets rather than stump up the £2.3 million it would take to lure the midfielder away from the John Smith Stadium. 

Clayton has just one more year left on his contract, and is also reported to be attracting the attention of Nottingham Forest, Wigan and Norwich City. 

5) Paul Dickov 'I will not quit' Doncaster Rovers 

Rovers manager Paul Dickov has reassured fans he will not walk away from the club despite a second failed takeover attempt.

The 41-year-old is working under increasingly difficult conditions at the Keepmoat Stadium, with just eleven players remaining on the books. 

However Dickov seems committed to the cause; “I love being here and I love working with everyone involved with the club, the players especially.

“It’s never once crossed my mind [to walk away].”
