Report: Leeds United go cold on deal for Martyn Woolford

Leeds United are now reportedly unlikely to move for Millwall player Martyn Woolford.

According to the Yorkshire Evening Post, Leeds United have gone cold on a proposed move for Millwall winger Martyn Woolford.

The 29-year-old was linked with a potential switch to Neil Redfearn’s side at the end of last month, when Millwall manager Ian Holloway was quoted as saying the player could head to Elland Road before the transfer window closed.

But the latest suggestion from the YEP is that the switch now looks unlikely, with Millwall having to contend with injuries and Leeds themselves no longer as keen.

Leeds could do with some new wingers given their lack of width, and with a contract that expires in the summer Woolford was an alleged target that made sense.

But having already brought in Granddi Ngoyi and Sol Bamba on loan it remains to be seen if Leeds will do anymore business in the next few hours.

Woolford is a left winger who has played 82 times for the Lions and who has previously turned out for Scunthorpe United and Bristol City.
