We bring you the latest news from Leeds United, Sheffield United, Rotherham United and Doncaster Rovers

1) Leeds United away kit leaked?

Leeds United’s 2014/15 away kit appears to have been leaked by the official website of the Football League, as shown in the photo above.

The website seems to have posted a picture of the new strip before it was released - giving Leeds fans a sneak preview of the kit their players will wear for the upcoming season.

The shirt is largely blue and has created a positive reaction from most Leeds fans on social media site Twitter.

2) Federico Viviani deal ‘definitely’ done.

Federico Viviani’s protracted transfer saga appears to have finally been concluded, with the midfielder signing for Leeds on loan.

Although nothing official has been announced, reports suggest that the talented, young Italian has completed a deal to move to Elland Road on a temporary basis from Roma.

The transfer for Viviani had appeared to be off after initial discussions failed, but rescue talks yesterday were positive and the 22-year-old should be announced as a Whites player for the upcoming season.

Massimo Cellino has reportedly said that the deal is done, whilst Viviani’s agent confirmed that it was ‘very close’ to being finalised last night.

3) More additions to come at Rotherham

Rotherham United coach Paul Warne has said that the Millers are still plotting to sign more players, with the Championship season’s start date looming on the horizon.

Steve Evans’ side achieved promotion from League One last year and have wasted no time strengthening the squad this summer, breaking their transfer record in the process.

However, the spending is not done just yet as Warne has revealed that more players could be incoming in the near future.

“We’ve strengthened through the summer, and there could still be a couple more additions,” he said.

“The boys have all worked hard and I think when August 9 comes round we should be good to go.”

4) John Brayford chase stepped up by Sheffield United

Sheffield United will look to sign Cardiff City defender John Brayford, if Harry Maguire’s deal to Hull City is concluded as expected.

Blades are set to pocket around £2 million if their young centre back does complete a move to the Premier League side and manager Nigel Clough will invest some of that money into signing Brayford.

Brayford, who spent time on loan at Bramall Lane last season, was one of Clough’s top targets this summer, but he was initially put off by Cardiff’s determination to keep the 26-year-old.

However, with more funds at his disposal, he intends to try and tempt the Championship side into selling the full-back, who he feels is someone who can add quality to his starting line-up.

5) Dickov calls for patience from Doncaster Rovers fan

Doncaster Rovers manager, Paul Dickov, has called for patienece from supporters of the side who are insistent that the club need to make some signings.

Rovers currently possess a squad that appears in desperate need of additions, especially as they have no senior goalkeeper, but the club have been quiet in the transfer window so far.

However, Dickov revealed that everything was under control and he actually feels it may be a positive that Rovers have left things late in the window – as they can now pick up players in bargain buys.

“People might be saying there are alarm bells ringing out there with two weeks to the season to go,” he said. “They’ll be asking how we’re going to get players?"

“But players are struggling. The players that are out there now, the best thing I can say is you might get them a lot cheaper than you would have at the start of the summer.”

Who should Doncaster sign this season? Would Brayford be a good addition for Blades?
