Neil Redfearn reveals what he admires about Millwall star Martyn Woolford

The Leeds United boss would love the left winger at Elland Road.

Leeds United boss Neil Redfearn gave his pre-match press conference this afternoon from Thorp Arch, as recorded by the club's official audioboom channel, and soon enough the questioning turned to transfers.

Leeds did well in January to get rid of some of the dead wood around the club and also snap up some talented players on loan. The likes of Granddi N'Goyi, Sol Bamba and Edgar Cani all arrived from Italian football before the deadline shut.

Now the loan window is open. Football League sides are able to sign players on short-term deals until 24th March and Leeds are expected to address their problem position in that time period, left wing.

Redfearn said on the subject of the loan window at his presser:

"I joke and say 'get me a left-winger, get me a striker, get me this and that.' I understand how it works and I appreciate what's happening at the club but if we can get the right players in, I think it is still important we try get the right players in."

He then went on to speak about one player he is keen on specifically, one player his Leeds team will face this Saturday when they take on Millwall - Martyn Woolford.

"I've mentioned certain players. We know the areas we are targeting and looking for and I don't think it is a secret. But it is getting the right ones in. There is no point getting players in that are only as good as the ones you've got.

"(Woolford has) experience, Championship experience. He scores goals. You know he gets a goal or two. He is a decent size so he gives you a bit of physical presence as well on the left. He's got a good left-foot, he can come inside on his right-foot and you know he gives you balance. He is that type of player that perhaps we are looking for. "

Woolford was linked with a move to Leeds United in January, with Millwall boss Ian Holloway even suggesting he could make the move.

This weekend Woolford will be aiming to down Leeds in Yorkshire. Redfearn will be hoping he makes his residence a little more permanent in the coming weeks.
