Leeds manager Simon Grayson will not be held to ransom by agents keen to get their players on the Elland Road payroll following the club's promotion.

Grayson confirmed 'a lot of discussions' are currently taking place, but he would only be signing players who wanted to join Leeds for 'the right reasons'.

He said: "In some respects maybe attracting players is easier here than at other clubs, but you have to make sure players want to come for the right reasons. It's not about getting loads of money, it's about playing for a top club and what we can achieve here."

Grayson added: "We've had a lot of discussions with agents and players and clubs, and there are areas we need to strengthen.

"Negotiations are ongoing at the moment and I'm not going to say that we're close with this or that because until something is signed, sealed, and delivered that's not my style."
