Leeds have been trying for the past week to try and lure the Scotland international defender to Elland Road.

However, Brighton were not willing to let Greer leave and Sky Sports understands that they have now agreed a new deal with the 32-year-old.

The news will be a huge blow to Leeds boss Brian McDermott, who had his sights set on Greer as he looks to bolster his squad ahead of the transfer deadline.

After also being linked with Bolton's Matt Mills in recent weeks, McDermott said he had drawn a blank with his bids.

"It's proving to be difficult that deal. At some point one has to move on. It's been going on for quite a long time now. But I haven't moved on yet, not completely," said McDermott.

"In this particular situation it's a club-to-club issue. The club doesn't want to sell the player and we were in a position where we thought they would. The club are now saying they won't.

"The player's agent thought there was a situation where the player would be sold but that's not proving to be the case. The club don't want to do the deal. It's a difficult situation when you think the player wants to come.

"But sometimes that's how it is. Clubs have got their own ideas and they've got to look after themselves. Rightly so. All clubs have got to do business the way they think is right and proper for them."

t all started going downhill when they started putting a photo of the writer along side their story. Journalists started to think that 'they' are the story, rather than what they write. Smug, self obsessed & up their own arse's. That sums up the majority of newspaper sports reporters.

he reason so much sh*t is written about football is because there are so many people who want to read sh*t about football. Now shut up, take my money, and tell me Ronaldo is going to sign for Van Haal and that Mick McCarthy is signing Peter Crouch on loan.
