Leeds United could soon be tiring up another piece of business after Portsmouth striker Luke Varney admitted that he only wants to make the move to the Yorkshire club.
It was revealed yesterday that Leeds had completed the signing of QPR keeper Paddy Kenny and it seems they will soon be able to call Varney a Leeds player.
The striker has been in discussions with Leeds representatives for some time and it seems as though he now has his heart set on joining Neil Warnock's side this summer.
There is believed to be interest from a number of Championship clubs but it seems as though Leeds are the frontrunners and be could soon be the fifth signing of the summer for Warnock.
“The other clubs that have been mentioned are still Championship clubs. But they are not clubs of the size of Leeds," Varney told the Yorkshire Evening Post.
“Neil’s got a great record in the Championship and it’s something I want to be a part of. With coming to Leeds, I can also still get home to see my little child in Leicester and it would be perfect. I’m looking forward to a move to Leeds.”
Leeds will have to pay around £300,000 for the services of Varney as this is the amount that Portsmouth still owe to Derby County from when they signed him for a £750,000 last July.
