'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Bakke May Have To Go Back

David O'Leary has told the press that the lack of available funds has meant he has been unable to negotiate a deal with Leeds to make Eirik Bakke's loan deal permanent.

Quite why he wants to bring in such an injury prone player isn't explained!

A report on Sky Sports says 'the Norwegian midfielder has proved a hit during his loan spell from Leeds'. I'm unsure as to whether that is true. The player hasn't featured a great deal due to his injuries and when he has played, he has obviously been short of match fitness. He lasted 12 minutes on Saturday against West Ham before hobbling off with another problem.

His loan spell runs out at the end of January and with this supposed takeover still being negotiated, it seems highly unlikely that anything but a loan extension will be possible.

O'Leary said 'Eirik is on loan until the end of January and I'd like that loan to continue to the end of the season. Only time will tell if we can do that. It is about the clubs getting together. Eirik says he wants to stay here to the end of the season. But if Leeds want us to buy Eirik now or make a commitment like that, he would have to go back because I'm not in a position to do that. If anyone does go out, the money won't be used for me to come up with somebody.'

Adding 'That's the way things are with the chairman. I respect that. He is the boss.' Not sure anyone else at the club respects what Ellis is doing to the club, but that is a whole different article!
