Yorkshire latest: Leeds rejection is 'nothing' to Redfearn; Rotherham disclose Becchio plan

New York Stadium sign, Rotherham

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

Neil Redfearn not bothered by Cellino decision

Neil Redfearn says that he is still happy to continue working for Leeds United despite not landing the managerial job.

Redfearn has been placed in caretaker charge of the side and was thought to be amongst the candidates to land the permanent job, but Cellino ruled him out of the running at the weekend.

This, though, is not something which has affected Redfearn's enjoyment for working for Leeds and the current manager says he will be happy to return to his role at academy-level when a new boss is employed.

“It is nothing to me either way. I am happy working for the club," Redfearn said to the Yorkshire Evening Post

“Obviously, Massimo understands how things work as regards setting managers and coaches on. He knows all that side of it and I trust in what he does and his decisions."

Huddersfield already have contingency plan

Huddersfield Town already have a list of loan replacements lined up for James Vaughan, if the striker's injury turns out to be serious.

Vaughan had to be substituted with a calf injury in the side's weekend fixture against Middlesbrough and will now face a scan to find out the severity of the problem.

If it is set to rule him out for a considerable amount of time, the Terriers already have a contingency plan lined up and will utilise the loan market to bring in a replacement.

"If he does face a spell out, then a loan is a possibility, and with the scouting system we have at this club, there is a list of potential targets already drawn up," manager Chris Powell said to the Examiner. 

Wallace return excites Clough

James Wallace's impending first-team return is exciting Sheffield United manager Nigel Clough.

The summer signing from Tranmere Rovers is yet to play for the Blades, after picking up an injury over pre-season, but he could make his debut against Colchester United tonight - much to his manager's pleasure. 

“He’s impressed us every time we have seen him in action, and we honestly can’t wait to get him out there," Clough said to Sheffield Star.

May: Wednesday a match for anyone

Sheffield Wednesday summer signing Stevie May believes his new side are a match for anyone in the Championship.

The Owls have made an encouraging start to their season and May thinks that they will be able to keep up their good form for the remainder of the campaign. 

“With a little bit more luck, we could be higher up but it’s been a solid start," May said to the Sheffield Telegraph. "We want to get the three points. If we are on our game, I think we are a match for anyone.”

Rotherham trying to nurse Becchio back to fitness

Rotherham United have revealed that they plan to get Luciano Becchio back to full-fitness, simply by playing him.

The striker started their weekend clash against Bournemouth and Steve Evans admits that he is still some way off the pace.

However, after a significant amount of time on the sidelines recently in his career, Evans says that the only way Becchio can get back to his best is by playing. 

“The overriding view of all the members of the management team is that the only way to get game-time is to play,” Evans said to the Sheffield Star.

“We know that we’re going to wrestle in the next few weeks to get Luciano up to the pace and the sharpness levels we need.

“He’s a physically fit guy. He’s impeccably fit. But in the next two or three weeks we’ll see a different Luciano on the pitch to the one we’re seeing at the minute.”
