Peterborough United chairman Darragh MacAnthony seems critical of Leeds United’s transfer policy.

Peterborough United chairman Darragh MacAnthony has stated on social networking site Twitter that he finds Leeds United’s transfer policy baffling.

MacAnthony has claimed that given the size and the potential of the club, Leeds should be pushing for promotion from the Championship to the Premier League.

Leeds are one of the biggest clubs in England and regularly attract over 20,000 fans to Elland Road for their home matches. However, the West Yorkshire outfit have not featured in the Premier League since 2004.

In recent years, Leeds have sold the likes of Sam Byram, Robert Snodgrass and Ross McCormack. Some of the players the Whites have signed have been good, but there have been a lot of average players coming in at Elland Road of late.

Leeds are 14th in the Championship table at the moment with 36 points from 29 matches. Meanwhile, Peterborough currently find themselves eighth in the League One table with 41 points from 28 games, just three points behind sixth-placed Millwall.
