So Leeds have SOLD an exciting youngster to Huddersfield and are now signing on a free a lag who is 30 in September - anybody would think the club was on its uppers rather than within touching distance of billions of pounds of oil money.
Look at it from Varney's point of view. If you were him, why would you sign for Leeds if you expect a host of multi million pound signings to follow? Move from the South Coast to Yorkshire to sit and rot in the reserves? No thanks! And why would you agree a salary package ahead of the oil coffers being opened? I know he is a bit of a turkey but would he really vote for Christmas like that?
It's all very odd and, all joking apart, something doesn't add up. Clayton was transfer listed because of his wage demands, not because he is crap; Varney is being signed because he is cheap, not because he is brilliant. And Leeds expect to be billyonaires in a few weeks? Leave the Rolls in the garage love, I'm catching the bus!
