Gordon McQueen isn't happy with the state of former club Leeds United.

Leeds United legend Gordon McQueen has told The Scotsman that he thinks the Whites have become too much of a selling club.

The Whites went into the international break off the back of a 4-1 home defeat to Huddersfield Town, all but killing off any lingering hopes of a push towards the play-off places.

Fans are now looking towards the summer, and whilst much of the focus will be on bringing in new signings to boost the Leeds squad, they must also attempt to keep hold of key players.

The likes of Charlie Taylor, Lewis Cook and Alex Mowatt will be needed long-term for Leeds, and whilst Premier League clubs will be keen, the Whites will surely be looking to keep hold of them having lost so many important players in recent years.

Leeds fans have seen the likes of Jonny Howson, Bradley Johnson, Robert Snodgrass, Max Gradel, Luciano Becchio and Ross McCormack leave Elland Road, and now, Leeds legend Gordon McQueen believes that the club are too willing to sell off their players to rivals.

Former defender McQueen also told The Scotsman that he is unhappy with the lack of assets Leeds have in terms of their stadium, training ground and even car park, having been asked about the situation at Elland Road under the controversial chairman Massimo Cellino.

"If any player shows any promise, Leeds sell him right away," said McQueen. "They don’t have any assets on or off the field in not owning their stadium, their training ground, or even their car park," he added.
