Simon Grayson biding his time on signatures

Leeds United manager, Simon Grayson, has insisted that he won’t be pushed into making kneejerk signings this summer, and that he doesn’t feel under any pressure to boost his ranks before the new campaign.

The Whites have seen the departures of Kasper Schmeichel, Neil Kilkenny and Bradley Johnson this summer, with experienced trio Michael Brown, and goalkeepers Paul Rachubka and Andy Lonergan coming in.

The lack of signatures has left some of the Leeds supporters puzzled, btu Grayson is confident that his current stars like Max Gradel and Robert Snodgrass are enough to lead the team this season.

Speaking to the Yorkshire Post, Grayson noted: “In terms of recruitment, I can maybe understand the frustrations of some people, but I don’t feel under any pressure to make signings for the sake of it. If I did bow to pressure then I would have made five or six in June to keep everyone happy.”

The manager added: “So, I am happy with where we are at. I wanted us to go for quality rather than quantity this summer and that is what we are doing.”
