Leeds have Goalkeeper signed(subject to a medical)

Leeds manager Simon Grayson has defended his decision to accept Leicester's bid for goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel.Grayson told Yorkshire Radio "It's something we've been loking at in that i'm trying to improve the back four or five of last year,when you concede the number of goals that we did,it's obviously an area where one or two players are vunerable and we need to change it round slightly""There's good options for goalkeepers and defenders out there so this was a footballing decision first and foremost, but obviously in this day and age with the Bosman ruling it quickens decisions up for you. We'll see where it goes.

"When Kasper goes we have other alternatives that will make us better and keep progressing us. Those are the decisions you make at times and that's the decision we've taken at this moment in time.

"I've spoken to him to explain my decision. If no bid had come, it wouldn't have changed the position that we were looking for another goalkeeper and it would be highlighted even more. It's always an area I've been looking to strengthen."

"A week or so ago,before all this with Kasper,we agreed a deal,subject to a medical,with a goalkeeper who will come in,but we will be looking for another as well"
