One In – How Many More Will Be Next?

by Right In The Gary Kelly's

Neil Warnock today confirmed his first signing of the rebuilding job at Leeds United with Portsmouth’s Jason Pearce joining for a reported £500,000, a story we first broke in April.

Pearce’s addition to the squad shows Warnock’s ambitions. If today’s news had been to announce the signing of a journey man on a free transfer, here only to make up the numbers, Leeds fans would once again have a feeling of disgruntlement against the club and not for the first time this season. But instead, the club has made the right decision in confirming the signing of a young, highly-rated centre back who could command a spot in one of England’s Premier League sides (Norwich to be exact, who were reportedly chasing him). As one Portsmouth fan said on twitter “Jason Pearce is a Prem class defender worth a lot more than £500k. Vultures circling”.

We ask how many players do you expect to see brought in between now and transfer deadline day? Taking into consideration that Warnock has already stated he isn’t a fan of the emergency loan window, we can safely say any he does make will be season-long and low in number.

    Excellent news!!
    4 year deal too.
    I sympathise with the Portsmouth fans.
    The vultures are circling.
    I remember how they circled around us, and took our best players for nothing!
    How the Chairman of the other clubs voted for a thumping points deduction against us. Pointing their bony fingers at us for going into liquidation.
    Well the other clubs are reaping the benefits now.
    Roll on the next 8 signings.

    Hope it’s not another Schmeichel-type signing, which I was very excited about at the time but wasn’t followed up by further quality signings leading to a nearly-but-not-quite season.

      Hopefully not, we can only assume this will be one of many high profile signings under NW.
