As we posed the question earlier had City gone back to Leeds with a highier offer for Robert Snodgrass, that certainly proved to be correct, with the Yorkshire club said to now pondering the revised offer.
A fellow independant Leeds web site believes that the new bid is in excess of £2 million and urges his club to refuse this offer in case other clubs come into the bidding arena.
Snodgrass has so far refused to sign an improved contract which would make him Leeds top earner and vowed not to be rushed in making any decisions. Will Leeds take the money now on a player who can walk away for nothing in 12 months time, or will cash in and use the money to re-invest ? We will see what develops over the next few hours.
Let's not forget that there could be more to the deal, it was reported the other day that Warnock was keen on City midfielder Andrew Crofts, it may well turn out to be money+Crofts
Past experience of City's handling of transfer deals will lead most City fans to get ready to have a new name on their shirts. .
