Brian Deane
Postion: Striker
Squad Number:30
International:

After a short trial at Elland Road, Brian Deane returned to Leeds United for a second spell, arriving on a free transfer on July 22nd 2004.

The 36-year-old (b. 2/7/68, Leeds) began his career at Doncaster Rovers in 1985, before moving to Sheffield United three years later where he scored 83 goals in 198 League appearances.

A £2.9 million move to then League champions Leeds United followed in 1993. Brian scored just 32 goals in 138 League games for United before returning to Sheffield United in 1997. He spent the majority of the following year playing for Portuguese giants Benfica before returning to England to join Middlesbrough for £3 million in October1998.

Brian switched to Leicester City in 2001, where he fired 13 First Division goals to help Mickey Adams' men back to the Premiership. He spent last season with West Ham United as a super-sub and Leeds pounched when he became out-of-contract.

A tall (6 ft 3 inches), powerful striker, United boss Kevin Blackwell will use his immense physical presence inside the penalty area to turn games this season. Like all Leeds strikers Brian had a barren start to the season. He had a perfectly good goal chalked off during the televised defeat by Sunderland early in the season. Brian eventually ended his drought by scoring in the 1-2 Portsmouth defeat at the end of October 2004.

Throughout the 2004-05 season Blackwell had to continually revamp his attack as the original summer pairing of Ricketts and Joachim didn't work out. Cadamarteri was transfered as soon as the season started. Deane who was earmarked for a super-sub role played far more games then either he or the manager envisaged. Indeed, if not for an injury Deane would have played even more games. However, the signing of Healy showed Blackwell wanted a change but he was hampered by lack of money. Once Ken Bates took over and the purse strings were loosened Blackwell continued the changes, moving Ricketts to Stoke on loan, Joachim to Walsall on loan, and finally transferring Brian Deane to Sunderland on deadline day, 24th March.

His final stats for the season were:
Championship: Played 23(8) Goals 6
League Cup: Played 1 (1) Goals 1

Update: December, 2005 - Brian Deane returns from an unsuccessful spell in Australia to sign for Sheffield United for the third time in his career!
