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

Leeds line-up bid for winger

Leeds United may have brought in a number of foreign imports over the summer, but it seems that more arrivals could be set to follow.

According to reports in Italy, the Whites are lining up a £1 million for Maribor's Agim Ibraimi and this appears to be a target thought out by both Massimo Cellino and Darko Milanic.

The Leeds owner will know about Ibraimi's talents as he played for Cagliari for a spell last campaign, whilst Milanic would have worked with him at Maribor.

Gray happy for break

Stuart Gray has revealed he is happy for the international break, as it has given his Sheffield Wednesday team a chance to rest-up.

The Owls have had a packed schedule recently and the break from club football has allowed their players to recover from any knocks.

"It’s difficult during the regular run of games because the most you can do is give players carrying niggles a day or two off training to make sure they’re available on the Saturday," Gray said to the Sheffield Star.

“The break gives them a proper opportunity to rest up."

Evans calls Leeds the giants of Yorkshire

Rotherham United manager Steve Evans says that Leeds United are the giants of Yorkshire.

A number of clubs around the county try to claim that they are the biggest in stature, but Evans believes that Leeds are the only true giants.

“Let’s be honest, people can talk about the size of clubs in Yorkshire, but there is only one giant," he said to the Star.

“When you consider their history, that’s Leeds United. I’ve maintained that since even before I came into South Yorkshire to work.”

Rotherham face Leeds on Friday evening. 

Clough not taking any risks

Nigel Clough says that he won't rush Sheffield United star Jose Baxter back to fitness.

The attacker has been out injured for a considerable amount of time, and Clough is being cautious over bringing him back into the first-team fold. 

“We won’t be taking any risks with Jose whatsoever," he said to Sheffield Telegraph. "That’s because we don’t want any set-backs or reoccurrence of the problem he’s had."
