Bloody hell, Leeds are being linked with Clint Hill and Shaun Derry again, two players in their mid thirties. Talk about a limited shelf life!
To secure them, Leeds would have to offer two or three year contracts because otherwise they will see out their time at Loftus Road. And why would Leeds do that? These guys are in a QPR squad that is on target for one of the lowest points totals ever in the Prem. So why would a team aspiring to reach the Prem want them on its books exactly?
Well, they fit the Warnock model don't they? Reliable cart horses - like Drury, Brown, Tonge and Paddy.
Of course, this may be internet speculation. But Warnock has repeatedly voiced admiration for his former warhorses and Redknapp has felt the need to say that he wants them to stay.
This is not what Leeds fans had in mind when news of a Middle Eastern takeover first broke!
Mind you, QPR are winning at Chelsea as I write! And Hill and Derry are in the team!
