    Good Morning. Its Thursday 7th November, and here are the Leeds Utd headlines

    Radrizzani flies to Paris for takeover talks

    Andrea Radrizzani, flew to Paris last night, not only to attend Paris Saint-Germain’s Champions League match against Bruges but for further talks with Nasser Al-Khelaifi, regarding what seems like an accelerated push by QSI to agree to a takeover at LS11.

    The Qatar based Investment company value the club at £51.6-68.8m, which is a long way off Radrizzani's expectations when you take into account the Leeds squad is valued at 61.65m alone, and that is before you take into consideration Elland Road or goodwill.

    The Leeds Chairman remains is in the driving seat however as he has two other very interested parties, an owner of an Italian club and a United States-based Leeds fan of immense wealth.

    Are QSI trying to push a takeover through before Christmas so they can invest heavily in January?

    Henderson - I was on the verge of joining Leeds

    Blades (and now England) keeper Dean Henderson has been talking to Sheffield Utd's official website about how he almost joined the Whites in the Summer of 2018 instead of them.

    “Every club in The Championship were after me at the time,” he told the club’s official website. “I’d been down to Leeds, and it looked as though I was signing there.

    Bristol City were very keen as well, and then my agent rang me and said that Sheffield United had been on the back burner. “I said to him ‘Why haven’t you told me?’, because I really wanted to go there.

    The gaffer rang me, we spoke on the phone for an hour, and to be honest I was walking there before I even put the phone down. I was just buzzing to come to Bramall Lane. It has been the best decision of my career so far.”

    Henderson went on to become their player of the season. What difference would Henderson have made to our season?

    If YOU could choose any two Championship players....

    Should a proposed takeover be completed before the New Year, if you could choose any two players from the Championship to sign, who would they be and why?

    Yes, I can imagine every goal keepers dream in 2018 was to go to Sheffield United, even before speaking to them, throw in the hated Leeds into the conversation and make yourself a local hero.

    Morning all :emoticon-0148-yes:

    QSI is a non story until we see white smoke and we don't actually know who the Italian and the yank are neither. Big American Leeds fan with loads of cash?

    Bielsa presser today and maybe more shocks around injuries? How is Eddie recovering, is Bamfords ankle sorted

    Seems like Tony Pulis will be going back to Stoke but they don't deserve him. He got Stoke into the prem and kept them there for years without spending massive amounts. The fans then decided the club should be in the Champions league and went all out to get him sacked. Justice served when managers spent shed loads of cash and look at them now at the bottom of the Championship. Billionaire owners are fine but you need a management plan and allowed to get on with it....

    Pulis started a war of words with Garry Monk yesterday but saying the problems at Boro were brought on by Monk and an agent employed by Monk. Spent fortunes on players and they were given huge wages but were not good enough. We know that Steve Gibson is taking Monk to court and we also know that Radz has also made a statement and given it to Gibson about Monk and his agent. Radz refused to even have the agent at ER never mind in meetings as it was obvious Monk was the real employer and was taking a big slice of the agents fee and the players the agent was trying to sell to clubs were not good enough but when you have a tame manager who wants those players......

    Morning all. Don't understand in these days of technological advances why people have to fly all over the world to discuss takeovers/investment? Surely a decent wifi connection and Skype would be a lot less hassle. Expect lots more talk of this as transfer window approaches as usual and the usual outcome by February 1st, zilch

    Good Morning to Matt and co from a wet Bardsey
    Are we getting near to the window opening again I think wewill get rid of Clarke and if we sign te loanee keeper on we would have room for another loanee
    I would plm for Jarrod Bowen with a clause to buy him in the event of promotion
    Young EZE at Qpr would make another good signing
    Lets hope they fine Monk or ban him for insider trading paying £7m for Fletcher when Leeds refused to pay £3m

    Bowen and Eze would be magnificent but can you see it happening or is it more hope?

    Talk of Bowen happening would be great but how will we cope in the Prem with the typical transfer story there: Bale and £80m swapped to Man Utd for Pogba. Or how about kane leaves Spurs for £100m.... Ozil earns £350,000 per week and only plays once per month....

    Lewie Coyle will be out of contract in the Summer and can walk away. Fleetwood love him but look like they get him for free? I understand Leeds dont want him and want to reward him for his service, but he has never played for the first team he should have played when we had the likes of Heckingbottom in charge but forgot about him. Was always the best right back at the club until Ayling and the new kids came through. Am hoping that Coyle is sold for a few quid in January just to be fair to the club
