That's interesting. Perhaps Bates is looking to sell anything that moves ahead of his departure, selling the brand and pocketing the dosh from as many of the transferable assets as possible. That would explain why Clayton was sold for a knock down price and why Leeds couldn't match Cardiff's figure for Keogh.
The new owners should beware. Inspecting the books is all very well but they should check out the playing staff too. At this rate, Old Mother Hubbard would feel at home at Elland Road!
