Bamba admits not being 100%

Leeds United defender Sol Bamba admits that it will take him one or two matches to get up to speed after struggling for first-team football this season.

Bamba, who signed on loan at Elland Road this week, has made just one appearance for Palermo this term and he admits that he is still rusty, even if he does want to play straight away. 

“I want to be playing and I’m desperate to be playing," he told the Yorkshire Evening Post. "Over the last six months I’ve not been playing so much. I need one or two matches to be 100 per cent but I want to be out there tomorrow. I’m looking forward to it.”

Chansiri wants Premier League football

Dejphon Chansiri says that he wants to deliver Premier League football to Sheffield Wednesday after buying out Milan Mandaric's share in the club. 

The ambitious prospective owner has already provided the money needed to sign Will Keane and Lewis Baker and Chansiri says that more signings will follow before the end of the month.

“I am hopeful that now everything is agreed, we can work together to bring in additions to the team before the end of the transfer window," he told the Yorkshire Post.

“We haven’t got long but we will all work very hard to strengthen the team for the second half of the season.”

Adams on dream night

Sheffield United's exciting prospect Che Adams says that he was overcome with emotion after scoring a quick-fire double in midweek. 

Adams came off the bench against Tottenham Hotspur to devastating impact, notching his first two goals for the club, and the 18-year-old says that he didn't know how to react after hitting the back of the net. 

“I enjoyed the goal, as you could tell from the celebration,” he said to the Yorkshire Post. “The manager wanted me to go back to the half-way line. It was just the emotion. It got to my head and I didn’t know what to do. But I was okay.
