According to The Times, Leeds United are still interested in signing Sammy Clingan.

The contract for the Northern Ireland international expires with Coventry City in June but he has been interesting the Yorkshire club.

It was thought that with Leeds signing Fabian Delph and Andros Townsend on loan, that they would not need any more midfield players, however, Simon Grayson has said that he hopes to get some more deals done and told the Yorkshire Post: “We are not too far away with a couple of deals but things can change quickly. Injury concerns at another club can put you back but if one or two of our targets aren’t available then we move on to other ones.

“If we can get the players in we want during the next week or so then that will hopefully lift the atmosphere.

“Hopefully, they will be signings who excite people. There is no point bringing in to make up the numbers. We need players who can affect the team. That is why it can be hard to conclude these deals quickly.”
