Leeds chasing Craig Mackail-Smith

Leeds are closing in on a deal for Brighton striker Craig Mackail-Smith.The two clubs are locked in talks as they try to thrash out a deal for the Scotland international.Leeds boss Neil Warnock has made Mackail-Smith his top target as he looks to bolster his attacking options at Elland Road.A possible swap deal with Ross McCormack going to Brighton has been mooted, but it is believed a number of other clubs are chasing the former Cardiff man.Brighton are thought to be willing to offload Mackail-Smith despite paying a club record £2.5million to sign the player from Peterborough last summer.Mackail-Smith scored 10 goals for the Seagulls last term, but Gus Poyet is ready to sell him to bring in a new target man.Brighton are thought to be waiting to bring in a replacement before sanctioning the sale of Mackail-Smith.


  1. Good signing but who to partner him with ?
    McCormack would do perfect in my eyes but what will be will be with warnock he's impressed so far

  2. I think this would be a FANTASTIC signing. One to get the crowd going. I'm amazed Brighton are looking at selling him as every time i saw him play on sky i rated the guy.
    Hopefully McCormak will show a bit of loyalty and see the potential of this partnership. Not ruling out Luciano or Somma when fit!


  3. If it was a choice between McCormack and MS i think id rather keep McCormack, on the other hand if we get MS to parner McCormack we're going up this season.

    1. Pretty much guarenteed good point
