Oil Money Has Dried Up At Leeds Already
Dear me, Old Big Gob has let the cat out of the bag big time. I wondered aloud why Leicester had been allowed to snap up Chris Wood and Warnock has supplied the answer, explaining,
"We've also got the transfer window opening and we'll be trying to make some signings straight-away. It looks like I've missed out on Chris Wood – I just can't compete financially with Leicester City – but I'm hoping to tie up some of the players I've had on loan."
You what? Mighty Leeds United under new ownership can't compete with little old Leicester City? What's happened to the £8m transfer war chest? What's happened to GFH Capital's commitment to back a charge for promotion?
According to some reports, Wood is being bought for just £1.25m. That's chicken feed surely? But chicken feed that the mighty GFH Capital appear unwilling to cough up. Is Master Bates a major shareholder in the Islamic bank by any chance?
