Yorkshire latest: Cellino confirms Sorensen signing; Huddersfield to sign Liverpool man

We bring you the latest news from Leeds United, Sheffield Wednesday, Hull City, Huddersfield Town and Rotherham United.

1) Sorensen a done deal?

Leeds United look set to sign Danish starlet Frederik Sorensen on loan from Juventus - with a view to a permanent deal at the end of the season.

The 22-year-old, who can play at centre-back or right-back, joined Juve in 2010 from Lyngby and has featured for the Bianconeri on over 20 occasions.

It was a deal that was thrashed out last night but Leeds owner Massimo Cellino has now confirmed the move - Phil Hay from the Yorkshire Evening Post revealing the terms of the loan agreement:

2) Liverpool starlet joins Terriers

Huddersfield Town have agreed a fee with Liverpool for the services of a player Leeds United were interested in - Conor Coady.

The one time future star of the Liverpool first-team spent last season on loan at Sheffield Ynited and has now decided the time is right for a step in a different direction.

Coady, who can play in defence or midfield, is said to be undergoing a medical with The Terriers today ahead of a £500k swoop.

3) Wednesday sign trialist

Sheffield Wednesday have brought in another defender with Slovenian Dejan Kelhar signing a short term deal with The Owls.

The 30-year-old has spent pre-season on trial with Wednesday after being released bu his most recent club Red Star Belgrade.

But he has obviously done enough to impress the club and will hope to earn a more long-term deal in time.

He said of the move:

"I have spoken to players who tell me great things about English football so I am really excited with this move."

4) Hull bid for 'next Seamus Coleman'

Hull City have made a bid for a player dubbed the 'next Seamus Coleman' in the English press.

Brian Lenihan has been tailed by the likes of Arsenal and Crystal Palace but the versatile utility man is reportedly the subject of a £100k bid from The Tigers - as they look to beat their rivals to the 20-year-old's signature.

5) Howard Webb retires

Finally, and Howard Webb has retired from professional refereeing. The Rotherham born star referee has hung up his whistle and laid down his cards - as he moves upstairs for a role as technical director with PGMOL.
