Andrews Rejects Leeds

Blackburn Rovers midfielder Keith Andrews has turned down a loan move to Leeds United and is tipped to join Championship rivals Ipswich Town.Andrews is being allowed to leave Blackburn after the Republic of Ireland international made just five Premier League appearances last season.A clutch of Championship teams have been chasing the 30-year-old, with Nottingham Forest also rumoured to be among those interested.
Leeds were also keen to sign Andrews, however, his agent Will Salthouse has confirmed he will not be heading to Elland Road."Keith won't be coming to Leeds," Salthouse told the Yorkshire Post.

"Leeds are still interested (in the future), but he just feels there's an opportunity somewhere else and at this moment in time, it's the best opportunity for him.

"There may be a change in the future, but at the moment, he won't be coming.

"I had a long chat with Simon (Grayson) and (technical director) Gwyn Williams. It was a close decision, but he won't be joining.

"There have been seven or eight of the top Championship clubs interested in him and the decision has been made on the fact that he's found the club where he's comfortable and feels he can develop again."
