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

Redfearn on transfer plans

Leeds United boss Neil Redfearn says that he wants to sign players with Championship experience in the January transfer window. 

The Whites have only been linked with players plying their trade in Italy so far, but Redfearn has explained that he wants to bring in a few proven stars too. 

“I’m hoping so [Leeds can bring in players with Championship experience] – or players who give us that sort of quality," he said to the Yorkshire Evening Post.

"We need that depth, that competition and real game-changers on the bench. At the moment it’s not the case.”

Gray happy with Nuhiu

Sheffield Wednesday boss Stuart Gray says that Atdhe Nuhiu's winning goal against Wigan Athletic last night was reward for his hard work. 

Nuhiu's graft for the team can go unheralded, but his manager was quick to praise the former Austrian Under-21 international's contribution after he provided the Owls with a 1-0 win yesterday. 

“I thought Atdhe deserved his goal," Gray said to the Sheffield Star.

“He was up there sometimes on his own. His ball retention was good.

“He does occupy two or three of the opposition defenders and it creates spaces for others."

Evans wants Lawrence

Rotherham United are hoping to re-sign Tom Lawrence from Leicester City in the January transfer window.

Lawrence has impressed on a short-term loan deal at the New York Stadium and Steve Evans is hoping to extend his stay at the next available opportunity. 

“Young Tom has been outstanding on and off the pitch in his short time with us,” he told the Sheffield Star. “He may well be back again; we’ll have to wait and see."

Wallace to be rested

Sheffield United manager Nigel Clough is insistent that James Wallace will not be rushed back from injury.

Wallace is a very important player for the Blades, but Clough is not prepared to risk the summer signing's future by bringing him back in too early. 

“James is too important, too good a player to mess him about like that," Clough explained to the Sheffield Star. "And, to be honest, I actually think he’s going to benefit from having a proper rest.”
