When I first heard the rumour that Leeds was looking to bring in Jermaine Jenas on loan I had the same ‘feeling’ as when Austin and Diouf appeared on the club’s radar: namely, a player Leeds needs – the guy has real talent.
Already, some fans are knocking Jenas as a “sick note” liability – probably the same fans that knocked Austin and Diouf as “red card” liabilities – but if you look at his record, Jenas has had only one major injury. Okay, he has been out of the game for a couple of seasons but you can bet that he will play his sock off at Leeds to redeem his reputation.
Other players Leeds is strongly rumoured to be looking to loan are DJ Campbell and Cameron Jerome – I’d take Jerome.
A young Fulham player with potential, Pajtim Kasami has been linked with a loan move to Leeds but some of our own youngsters have potential and it would be a disincentive for them if Kasimi was brought in – I can’t see this happening.
Stoke, a club that needs to cut its costs, has a few players surplus to its requirements that Leeds has been rumoured to be interested in: Michael Tonge, Mama Sidibe, Danny Higginbotham, and Wilson Palacios – Neil Warnock has worked with Tonge before but if I was to pick one of these players to add a bit of icing to the Leeds team it would be Palacios.
To keep the relatively good start to this season’s campaign going I reckon Neil needs at least three loan signings. My choices would be Jenas, Jerome, and Palacios.

Cameron Jerome is a relation of mine, his dad Hanson is my dads cousin and i see him at family get togethers so i could put a good word in, although i dont think he is what Leeds need. To say he is laid back is a bit of an understatement and this shows on the pitch.
The guy has strength, size, and a fair bit of pace for a big lad, but for me he doesnt use his atributes enough. Maybe the premiership is a step up too far for him and he might be more at home in the Championship?
His old man used to play for Emley and was a right player, maybe il have a word with him instead.

Neil needs to bring in another no nonsense defender for back up, i think Leeds are short in defence if any injuries occur there!
Kevin, this is true. But Leeds is short of back-up all over the pitch... unless we start p...
Kevin, this is true. But Leeds is short of back-up all over the pitch... unless we start playing our youngsters!
