LUFC Bates turns down Beckford twice this season

Tweet Leeds United chairman Ken Bates says the club twice turned down the opportunity to sign former striker Jermaine Beckford this season.

Beckford left Leeds in the summer of 2010 to join Premier League side Everton after coming to the end of his Elland Road contract.

He stayed with the Merseyside club for just one season before making a big money move to fellow championship side Leicester City in August.

Bates says he was twice offered Beckford this season but he decided against resigning the player who scored 85 times for Leeds in 3 seasons.

Speaking on Yorkshire Radio, Bates said, "He was offered to us to come back on a permanent basis on two occasions this season but we declined because we want to move forward."

Beckford will make his first return to Elland Road this weekend with Leicester following his departure from Leeds.

The striker scored the crucial goal against Bristol Rovers on the final day of the season in his final game for Leeds that earned the club promotion back to the Championship.

Beckford also scored the only goal of the game against Scumchester United in the FA Cup at Old Trafford in the same season that secured Leeds their first win across the Pennines in 29 years.

After a slow start to his Leicester career, he has now netted on 15 occasions for the foxes this season, including one against West Ham last Monday.

"I shall not rest until Leeds United are kicked out of the football league. Their fans are the scum of the earth, absolute animals and a disgrace. I will do everything in my power to make sure this happens."

If Bates was going to announce something like that he`d have done it on bates radio. That will be some fooker fucking about and vital got hooked. Saying that he is a kunt though.
