Yorkshire latest: Leeds loanee open to long-term move away from Elland Road, Blades could sign O'Grady

Elland Road East Stand

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

Hunt wants longer stay

Leeds United striker Noel Hunt is hoping that his stay at Ipswich Town is a longer one than originally proposed.

Hunt is only due to stay at Portman Road until January but, after scoring on debut, he is determined to do enough to prove he can offer them something in the long-term. 

"I’m here for a month, obviously I’d love to stay longer – absolutely love to – but that will be up to the higher powers," he told the East Anglian Daily Times. "I’ll be working my backside off to get offered something in January.”

Gray wants repeat performance

Sheffield Wednesday manager Stuart Gray insists that his side must put a run together after ending their winless streak this weekend.

The Owls' victory over Wigan Athletic was their first win in 10 matches and Gray wants them to back this result up by beating Blackburn Rovers on Saturday. 

"We’ve got that win and now we have to go to Blackburn and build on what we achieved on Saturday," he said to the Sheffield Telegraph. "The character in this squad and the spirit is second to none and I have every confidence in this group of players.”

Powell: defeat harsh

Huddersfield Town boss Chris Powell thought his side deserved a point from their game against Bolton Wanderers this weekend. 

The Terriers lost 1-0 to Neil Lennon's quickly improving side, but Powell feels that the result wasn't a fair reflection on the game. 

“We knew Bolton had an uplift in form since Neil came in (to replace Dougie Freedman), but we felt comfortable coming here and playing the way we did," he said to the Yorkshire Post. "The chances were there for us to take something."

“I think a draw would have reflected the whole game.”

O'Grady could stay longer

Nigel Clough has revealed that there is a possibility Chris O'Grady's loan move could become a permanent switch.

The striker joined on a short-term loan from Brighton and Hove Albion last week, but Clough believes it could turn into a full transfer in January. 

"We’ve not talked about doing anything permanently with either him or Brighton but in situations like this the thought is usually always there," he said to the Sheffield Star.
