Well that's a kick in the cobblers for Nice Guy Brian. Key target Khizanishvili has decided that life in Turkey is preferable to a stint in Leeds and has elected to sign a new contract with Kayserispor rather than resume his working relationship with the new Leeds boss.
This is a particular blow for all those Leeds fans who were hailing the ex-Newcastle, Rangers, Reading and Blackburn player a great signing only yesterday.
Now everybody will be singing a different tune of course: too old, never very good, bit of a yard dog, not what we need, Lees and Pearce are better anyway...
Twenty four hours is a long time in football!
