Yorkshire latest: Cook reveals Premier League ambitions, Blades want two loan signings

Elland Road Revie Stand

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

Cook wants to make it to the Premier League

Lewis Cook may have only made four appearances at Elland Road, but he is already setting his sights high.

Having broken into the first-team this season, the 17-year-old is hoping to guide his club back to the Premier League, after coming through their youth-academy.

He said: “My first goal is to play week-in week-out then it is to get to the Premier League. That’s the biggest goal you can get."

“I feel we’re getting towards that way [playing at the top level]. A lot of new faces, new talented players and I feel that we’re a lot stronger team.”

Powell to stick with Peltier

Lee Peltier will continue as Huddersfield Town captain, even after a new boss has been appointed.

Peltier was made captain following his move from Elland Road this summer and Chris Powell says that he sees no reason to change this decision made by the previous regime.

“I see no need to go anywhere near the captaincy,” he said. “Lee is experienced, plays in a number of positions, is a good voice and a good character and knows the club."

“I’m very comfortable with him wearing the armband.”

Ben Pringle reveals Rotherham aim

Ben Pringle believes that Rotherham United can make it to the top half of the Championship this season.

The Millers were promoted into the second-tier last year after winning the League One playoff final, but Pringle does not want them to simply target avoiding the drop.

“Top half, definitely we can aim for that,” the talented midfielder said.

“I think everyone realises that when we’re on our game and when we’re clinical and taking chances we’re too good to be anywhere near the bottom or to get relegated.”

Chris Maguire wants to improve

Sheffield Wednesday ace Chris Maguire says that his performance have been ‘steady’ rather than spectacular so far this season.

The attacker has been a mainstay in the Owls side, who have started the season very impressively, but he says he would have liked to have hit the back of the net with more regularity.

“I’d definitely liked to have got a few more goals,” he said. “I’ve been unlucky with a few chances."

“I’m starting to get back into the swing of things but I don’t feel as though I’ve kept on compared to what I was doing last season."

“I know there’s more to come from me and hopefully it’ll come sooner rather than later.”

Blades want two loanees

Sheffield United manager Nigel Clough says that Blades are still hoping to bring in two loanees to strengthen their squad.

Clough tried to make a couple of permanent transfers on deadline day, but no deals materialised meaning he now wants to dip into the loan market.

“Bringing in a couple of players (loans) would have been ideal,” he said. “We are still going to try and do that, even with a view to making them permanent in January.
