Brian McDermott: Wants one more signing

McDermott has signed three players during the summer, but had suggested he would have to sell in order to add anymore new faces to his squad.

The former Reading boss revealed after the weekend defeat to Nuremburg however, that there had been some interest in one of his current players and this could lead to one more new arrival ahead of Saturday's opening league fixture against Brighton.

"We've had a little bit of an enquiry," McDermott said. "Monday, Tuesday we'll see what happens.

"Maybe that would let me do something the other way.

"If someone left the building, someone could possibly come in. That's how it is."

Leeds closed their pre-season fixture programme with a 4-0 win over Irish side Shelbourne on Monday evening.

Winger Ryan Hall scored twice, while Noel Hunt and Ross Killock were also on the scoresheet.

McDermott told the club's official website: "I was delighted with the whole group.

"We got up at 4am, travelled out here, played at night, and did very well.

"It shows the attitude of the group. They applied themselves well and were professional.

"I was very happy, it was a good mix we had with us."

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
