We have turned down an offer from Leeds United for goalkeeper David Stockdale, according to the Birmingham Mail.

The bid is reportedly below the valuation the club have set for the player, and it is not known whether the Whites will come back with a revised offer.

Stockdale has been told he can leave, along with his fellow keeper Tomasz Kuszczak, but there are a number of obstacles to our no.13 leaving St Andrews.

The 32-year-old is reportedly on a sizeable wage, and reports have suggested that Leeds are struggling to agree personal terms with the stopper.

Hopefully, the situation will be resolved sooner rather than later. If we can get the player off the wage bill, it will allow us greater room for manoeuvre in the transfer market.

Despite our willingness to sell two goalkeepers, there has been no indication so far as to who could replace them in goal next season.

  • The fee has to be accepted before the player can speak to them and for any personal terms to be discussed. Its likely his agent would give Leeds an indication of what sort of terms they would need to offer but for the sake of accurate reporting it should not be stated or implied that terms have been discussed with the player.

  • Dire situation for the club to handle.All down to Redknapp and his cavalier spending of other people’s money. Portsmouth suffered the worst admittedly with the farcical wage structure under him,but owners,chairmen never heeded the warnings.
