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

Dawson ready for first-team chance

Neil Redfearn says that he would have brought Chris Dawson into his first-team at Leeds United as he is an immense talent.

Redfearn has taken back over his role in the academy system at Leeds, after an impressive spell as caretaker manager earlier in the season, and he has identified Dawson as a player who could make the grade at Elland Road.

"In the spell that I had (in temporary charge), if it had gone on any longer, he would have been in my thinking and I would have got him involved," he said to the Yorkshire Evening Post.

“For me, I think he is an immense talent."

Madine has no complaints

Gary Madine says that he has no complains about not planning much this season for Sheffield Wednesday.

The striker has had spent most of the campaign so far on the bench, but he says he cannot moan about this because of the form of some of this teammates. 

"I can’t grumble at not playing a lot because Atdhe [Nuhiu] has been very good," he said to the Sheffield Star. "He’s had a couple of off games but in others he has been unplayable."

Kari Arnason enjoys international break

Rotherham United's Kari Arnason says that he is enjoys getting away from club matters when international weeks come around.

The powerful defender is part of the Iceland squad, meaning he doesn't have a chance to rest up like many of his teammates during this fortnight, but he enjoys the challenge of international football.

“I love playing for Iceland and it is good to change it up as well and not always be doing the same thing," he said to the Yorkshire Post.

“It is good to get away sometimes and concentrate on something else and it keeps you on your toes."

Powell happy with Hudson

Chris Powell has said that Joel Lynch and Mark Hudson are his first-choice centre-back pairing at the moment for Huddersfield Town.

Hudson only joined the club over the summer, but he has wasted no time making an impression and Powell paid tribute to the defender today. 

"Mark has settled in very well, and formed a good partnership with Joel Lynch,” Powell said to the Examiner.

“Huddy is playing as though he has been around for a number of years, not just a month or so."
