"Barn Door" Billy set for Leeds Exit

Leeds striker Billy Paynter is set to leave the club on loan and a host of Championship clubs are looking to sign him.The 27-year-old moved to Elland Road last summer from Swindon, but is now out of favour under Simon Grayson.Paynter,who scored just one goal in 23 appearances, came in for criticism from fans last season with some nicknaming him "Barndoor Billy" due to his inability to find the back of the net and has been linked with a move away from Elland Road since the end of the last campaign.Now a host of clubs are ready to try and battle for his signature on loan.Coventry, Barnsley, Blackpool, Brighton, Doncaster and Derby are all believed to be keen on landing Paynter.
