Yorkshire latest: Leeds want three more signings, Clough hails new signing

Leeds United

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

David Hockaday wants two or three more

David Hockaday has hinted that Leeds United could make two or three more additions this transfer window.

The club have already brought in 12 players, but it seems that Hockaday is definitely targeting more before the end of the month.

He said to BBC West Yorkshire: "I've got exciting young talent that in months will be very decent players. But we need 2 or 3 players for now."

Potential Leeds buy identified

Leeds United have lined up Cagliari ace Daniele Dessena as a potential addition, according to reports in Italy.

The 27-year-old is a central-midfielder and could be another player brought in from Massimo Cellino from his homeland.

Dessena has collected 25 caps at under-21 level for Italy and could be a good addition to Leeds’ midfield, which looks an area of weakness.

Mark Lillis takes positives out of defeat

Huddersfield Town may have been beaten 2-0 to Nottingham Forest last night, but caretaker Mark Lillis is keen to focus on the positives.

The Terriers were dumped out of the League Cup by Stuart Pearce’s men, who have started the season well, but Lillis still felt that there was some good football on display from his side.

“I thought the fans were great again tonight,” he said to the club's official site. “I’m disappointed we’ve lost, but I thought some of the stuff we played and the effort was good.”

Stuart Gray: Owls fear nobody

Stuart Gray says that Sheffield Wednesday fear nobody, after their fantastic start to the season.

The Owls are still unbeaten in competitive matches so far, but face a tough test against in-form Nottingham Forest at the weekend.

However, boss Gray insists that his side will host the Championship big-spenders full of confidence.

“We’ve got an important game against Forest on Saturday who are in good form,” he said to the Sheffield Telegraph. “But we are in good form too and don’t fear anybody. The team spirit is good. I’ve got a group of players who are giving everything for the cause.”

Clough hails Mark Howard

Nigel Clough has hailed Mark Howard’s performance after he turned out to be the hero last night.

Sheffield United beat West Ham United in the League Cup on penalties, with Howard thwarting the Hammers strike-force on numerous occasions.

And his manager was delighted with the efforts of his summer signing, he said: "He has been in great form so far this season. We have made him number one and we are delighted - he is from down here and had family and friends here.”
