Interesting to read that Andy O'Brien has refused to play for Leeds and Grayson has said he will never play for the club again. This is hot on the heels of the Leeds manager insisting that there was no way the Anglo-Irishman would be allowed to go out on loan after he was linked with West Ham.
O'Brien, of course, is an ex Bolton player so, no doubt, fancies linking up with Allardyce at West Ham Wanderers. By pure coincidence he is a centre back and we are crying out for cover for Tomkins and Faye because of the injury to Reid.
Leeds will be reluctant to aid our promotion bid but with the Championship equivalent of a Tevez affair developing, Grayson will probably be happy to just get him out. Expect a loan deal until January and a free transfer move as soon as the window opens.
