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

Redfearn on Leeds' young squad

Leeds United manager Neil Redfearn believes that his side's turnaround since the start of the year is made even more impressive because of the average age of their side.

Leeds have one of the youngest squads in the Championship and Redfearn feels that their recent climb up the table is testament to their ability. 

“You sometimes forget the average age of our side is 23," he said to the Yorkshire Post. "To come out of adversity like we have done has been a truly fantastic achievement."

McGugan on new ownership

Sheffield Wednesday midfielder Lewis McGugan says that Dejphon Chansiri's takeover of the club has given everyone a boost.

Although the Owls' results haven't been the most positive since the new owner's arrival, McGugan feels it has raised spirits in the camp. 

“Any new ownership breeds confidence around the place, not just with the players, but the staff as well," he said to the Sheffield Star. "Everyone wants to do the best possible job, showcase their talents and do the right things so I think it can only be a good thing.”

Basham fumes

Chris Basham admits that his Sheffield United teammates are frustrated due to two successive home defeats.

Peterborough United and Fleetwood Town have both been to Bramall Lane and won in the past week, which has dented the Blades' promotion push, and Basham revealed his frustrations earlier today. 

“We’re disappointed, angry and frustrated with ourselves,” Basham said to the Sheffield Telegraph. “Because we’ve been on an unvbelieveable run and now we’ve lost two in a row."
