Leeds United Message Board
The YEP is reporting that Johnson may be on his way to Leeds http://www.yorkshireeveningpost.co.uk/leedsunited/Leeds-United-Manchester-City39s-Johnson.6706799.jp.
It has also just reported that Blackpool midfielder, Keith Southern is at Leeds discussing contract terms http://www.yorkshireeveningpost.co.uk/leedsunited/Leeds-United-Blackpool-midfielder-to.6707327.jp
I hope we can sign both - but if only one, please let it be Johnson!
Nick Montgomery, the Sheffield United midfielder, has also been mentioned.
After all the departures today (Martin, Crowe, Elliot) and loans out (Bessone, White, Grella; and a rumour that Paynter and Bromby are to be loaned to Wednesday) relieving the wages bill, it may just be possible that we can strengthen significantly and push for promotion.
David Gonzalez, the Man City number three goalie, also signed a loan agreement with Leeds until the end of the season. I hope this is as a backup for Schmeichel and not a replacement!
Rumour: Collins to go to Sheffield United - if true, £500K well spent on that signing!
Our already leaky defence will need propping up with an alternative to Connelly at RB. Surely, Larry must have a replacement in mind.

If the rumours are true - and time is running out, Johnson and Southen would both be good.
The clear-out that has taken place today and in the last week should allow players to come in at maximum wages, so let's hope they are quality deserving of the pay.
I look forward to the next few hours with i9nterest, but am not holding my breath.
So far today 4-0
