Leeds face FIFA in attempt to sign striker

Published Add your comment

Simon Grayson is still hopeful that Leeds will be able to sign experienced striker Paul Dickov before the end of the season - despite FIFA blocking the move.

Currently players can represent a maximum of two clubs in one season in the same country and the 37-year-old has already played for Championship sides Leicester and Derby.

Dickov trained with the Yorkshire side last week and will return for a second time later this week after a short spell on trial with MLS side Toronto FC in their training camp in Florida.

Leeds boss Simon Grayson said: "We are trying to investigate a way round it. I won't say it will definitely happen but he looked fit and lively in training. He has gone to America and will have a look but he will be back with us on Wednesday or Thursday. We can then see where we are with FIFA and UEFA."

Grayson added: "He is a player I like - he has played for me before and I want competition for places."
