Scunthorpe set for Becks disappointment

2 August 2007 :: by Chris Hudson

Championship-side Scunthorpe United have learnt that their bid to sign Jermaine Beckford from League One Leeds United has failed. Scunthorpe Utd took Beckford on loan from Leeds United last season and he scored eight times for the Lincolnshire outfit, helping them to promotion whilst Beckford's owners were relegated. Leeds United manager Dennis Wise came in for criticism for not bringing Beckford back to Elland Road when he hit form at the end of last season and he is clearly not about to let that happen again.

Wise, who cannot sign new players for Leeds United because of financial restrictions imposed during the uncertainty caused by the Football League's dithering over returning United's golden share, has clearly marked out Beckford as his number one striker for the coming League One campaign.

Wise is quoted on the official Leeds United website,

"Jermaine is a fantastic talent. A lot of people have just noticed him, and whether that's good or bad I don't know. He's part of my club, part of my plans and I hope he's going to get me some goals this year. There's some young, hungry blood here now who want to prove things. That's what I want, not players who think they've done it and earn too much money."

Wise has already had to sell the effective Robbie Blake, to Burnley FC, and the big-time charlie, David Healy, who was only effective at international level, to Fulham FC, and time is now running out to develop a strike force for next season. Experienced striker Richard Cresswell almost made the move to Hull City on Wednesday and Wise would have lost the talented ex-Preston player too if Hull hadn't got cold feet over the result of his medical. So the only question facing Wise is who does he play alongside Beckford and that leaves Scunthorpe United without one of the key players who impelled them into the Championship.
