Massimo Cellino denies Leeds United move for Crystal Palace striker Frazier Campbell

Leeds United owner says the former Sunderland striker will not be heading to Elland Road.

Leeds United are said to be on the hunt for a new striker this month and it has been reported by the Yorkshire Evening Post that one of the men they are looking at is Frazier Campbell.

The report stated that Leeds had failed in the past 24 hours with a bid for the Crystal Palace striker before turning their attentions to Barnsley striker Sam Winnall.

However the Leeds owner Massimo Cellino has denied any reports of Leeds United interest in Campbell to Sky Sports this morning.

Cellino, who has already made it clear that further additions to the club are unlikely before the end of this months transfer window, has therefore made it clear that Campbell will not be heading to Elland Road.

Campbell is just one of many forwards linked with Leeds United this month - but it is looking increasingly likely that none will arrive.

Leeds have struggled for goals at times this season and with Chris Wood struggling with a persistent hamstring injury a new attacker seemed a likely signing.

But it now looks increasingly likely that Leeds' winter business might indeed be over.
