In January, Leeds United were linked with a move for Rangers attacker Josh Windass. The Daily Record reported that Leeds were willing to pay in excess of £500,000 for the player. At the time he was in fine form under Graeme Murty’s tutelage.
Windass went on fall out of favour at Ibrox and this summer he was sold to Wigan Athletic for a reported £2.5million. Steven Gerrard was clearly not a fan of the divisive player and he swiftly became surplus to requirements.
However, by the summer, things had changed at Leeds United.
No move for Windass came in from Leeds and tonight he faced off against the Whites at the DW Stadium.
He would have wanted to give Leeds a taste of what they are missing. However, that did not prove to be the case.
Leeds won the game 2-1, with goals from Pablo Hernandez and Kemar Roofe completing a turnaround after Reece James’ free-kick. Windass did little of note. It was something of a difficult day at the office for the hard-working attacker, who found himself up against an impressive Leeds side.
In the other direction, Leeds’ frontmen all had decent games and with the likes of Samuel Saiz on the bench and Patrick Bamford still recovering from injury, Leeds will not be losing sleep over not chasing up this transfer interest.
