We have turned down an initial bid which was below our valuation of Liam and we now await a response from Leeds. I'm not surprised that there has been interest in Liam because he is a quality player. Paul Cook has assembled a squad of players who are capable of playing in League 1 and above and it would be a surprise if none of them attracted interest from other clubs.

To be here at Leeds Metropolitan University and to receive such a prestigious award makes me feel very proud; I’m absolutely delighted for myself, my friends and my family. When I came down to Leeds, the one thing that Don Revie taught me was to have the confidence to believe in your own ability and have the courage to use it and never walk out the door thinking to yourself, I could have done a little bit better. Give it your all and if it doesn’t work out, you know you’ve tried your best.

It is 101 days since controversial Italian Massimo Cellino took over at Leeds United - and it certainly hasn't been dull!
He has sacked manager Brian McDermott, appointed a little-known replacement, lost a star player and captain..and started raiding the Italian transfer market to build a new team; and he's promised to get rid of the club's Thorp Arch training base, and buy back Elland Road.
He has been talking about all that - and more - in an exclusive TV interview for Calendar.
John Shires reports.
Leeds United owner Massimo Cellino says he is impressed with the professionalism of the players at the club's pre-season tour of Italy.
He told ITV Calendar that he was particularly impressed with Noel Hunt and Steve Morison who hardly played last season:
Former Leeds United captain Ross McCormack had resolved to leave the club before the team left for a pre-season tour of Italy, according to Massimo Cellino.
The Italian reiterated that he was reluctant to sell the Scot, who was the Championship's top scorer last season.
He told ITV Calendar that the club did not need to sell and it hurt him to sell to a league rival, rather than a higher division club:
Leeds United owner Massimo Cellino says his transfer policy will ensure the clubs survival in the Premier League when they get promoted.
New manager Dave Hockaday has already signed several Italian players, goalkeeper Stuart Taylor but sold 29-goal captain Ross McCormack to Fulham for £10.75 million.
The former Cagliari owner says he wants to sign players who will grow with the club:
The owner of Leeds United, Massimo Cellino, has been spelling out his vision for the future of the club.
In the interview, which will feature in Calendar tonight, he told us how proud he is of the players and described the pressure he faces at Elland Road:
As the football fraternity prepares for the World Cup final on Sunday it is only fair that Yorkshire claims a hand in the success of the Argentinian manager.
The man who will lead the South Americans into their clash with Germany played nearly 100 games for Sheffield United and Leeds in the seventies and eighties.
