Alan Tate set to extend loan spell at Leeds

Alan Tate set to extend loan spell at Leeds

Tate has slotted well into the Leeds back line after arriving last month, but his loan is set to expire in the next few days and manager Neil Warnock wants to keep the experienced centre-back at Elland Road.

The 30-year-old has slipped down the pecking order at Swansea and Laudrup is willing to let him stay in Yorkshire until the summer.

"Alan is doing well and I think he'll continue there for the rest of the season," he told the Yorkshire Evening Post.

Reports suggested that Leeds had been willing to offer £250,000 for Tate, who is under contract with Swansea until 2015, but a temporary deal appears more likely.

A longer loan for Tate will be further good news for Warnock, who has tied down El-Hadji Diouf on a fresh deal and agreed the permanent signing of fellow winger Ryan Hall from Southend.

Leeds are also expected to open talks about extending the loan spells of Stoke midfielder Michael Tonge and West Brom winger Jerome Thomas.

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
