Leeds United are reportedly keen on Sheffield Wednesday striker Jordan Rhodes.

According to the Daily Mail, Leeds United are plotting a move for Sheffield Wednesday striker Jordan Rhodes as they line up potential replacements for Chris Wood ahead of the transfer deadline.

The Whites saw Wood, 25, enjoy a remarkable campaign last season as he notched 30 goals in all competitions, but the New Zealand international is now believed to be on the verge of completing a £15million move to Premier League side Burnley.

Wood, who was omitted from Saturday's win over Sunderland in order to facilitate his move to Burnley, will leave a huge hole in the Leeds attack, and manager Thomas Christiansen must now eye up other strikers - especially as Caleb Ekuban suffered an injury against Sunderland.

Now, the Daily Mail report that Leeds are lining up a move for Sheffield Wednesday striker Jordan Rhodes - though it's claimed that Championship rivals Wolverhampton Wanderers are leading the race for his signature as they bid to add more firepower this summer.

Why would we sell a player we've only just signed, especially to promotion rivals :columbo:

If we made a profit with this I'd get rid.

 

while ever we have CC as manager I don't think Rhodes will be a major player for us. £12million, more game time for Winnall and hopefully flexibility to bring in a couple of extra defensive players would do nicely.

At the moment we have to be a selling club to be a buying club, so some one will have to go for a decent price.

It seem's that will be either FF or Rhodes.

Surprised if it happens, but sad to say he will not prosper under Carlos, so it would add to our war chest and diminish our wage bill.

Christ I hope this is nonesense.

 

If we have given up so soon on the Championship's top scorer of the last 8 years then it's a terrible indictment of Carlos's mismanagement.

 

Hooper and Fletch are our best pairing, but we know they will have plenty of time out. To have to rely on Winnall, and worst of all, Forestieri, as our replacement strikers would be a huge step backwards.

If we are unable to spend money to bring in the sort of quality we still need in defence and midfield, sell him. It's a no brainer. Didn't need him when we signed him and we don't need him now.

Be pretty shitty seeing him score for dirty Leeds of all teams. Really hope is just lazy journalism. We would be crazy to sell him to a promotion rival.

£10m plus £40k per week, not happening. We'll look abroad.

 

Completely agree - it's lazy journalism.

Lasogga linked isn't he. Rhodes is a completely different style of forward as well. I think you'll be after a big unit like wood who's also mobile.

I don't know where you are getting your information from,but it is way off the mark, don't believe every thing you read.

Why on earth would you want to guarantee a play off rival 20 goals a season ?

Don't think a player is allowed to move twice in one transfer window. If so its a non-starter.
