This is a bit of a strange one. Matt Mills hasn't exactly been successful since he parted from McDermott, but if you believe the Yapping Post, Bolton are keen to offload him and Mills is desperate to make the move to Leeds.
Leeds undoubtedly need another centre back and Mills did well for McDermott before he was sold to Leicester - all the pieces seem to fall into place quite nicely so surely this will be the first deal of the summer for Leeds. Or will it?
To begin, this is all speculation and Nice Guy Brian may not fancy Mills any more. But if he does, there is still the little matter of a transfer fee.
I use the phrase "little matter" advisedly, because Bolton are apparently willing to accept just one million for the guy that McDermott sold for four and a half times that amount when more money than sense Leicester came calling. The big question, however, is whether GFH Capital will stump up even that modest amount to finance a push for the Prem. Warnock tried to sign the guy on loan in the January window and was knocked back, and the cash wasn't made available to buy him then.
Leeds fans should watch what happens - or doesn't happen - very closely. Mills is a litmus paper. If GFH Capital turn blue at the thought of shelling out a million, their lack of intent will be clear for all to see.
