Warnock cannot wait for transfer window

Leeds United boss Neil Warnock says he cannot wait for the New Year and the transfer window opening.
Leeds produced a totally abject performance at Hull City on Saturday and were very lucky to come away with just a 2-0 defeat.
With new owners at the club, Leeds boss Neil Warnock says he is now looking forward to bringing in some new players and he will be hoping to have them in before the championship game at Barnsley on January 12th.
Speaking on Yorkshire Radio, Warnock said, "We are trying to bring in one or two in as early as possible. I hope that by the time we play our next league game after Bolton we will have one or two in.
"We are in for one or two good players and we will be competitive. I know I will get the support and I need to keep my fingers crossed.
"I am just hoping we can get the players and I am getting the support behind the scenes."
Leeds will need to add plenty of quality to a side that look average. The centre of midfield lacks and pace and fight and the same can be said in the centre of defence as every time we come up against players with pace we look far to slow.
Warnock says he is concentrating on a striker but is this the area Leeds really needs to strengthen as a priority.
The defeat at Hull was only the fourth time Leeds have failed to score this season so the defence and midfield need to be the priority.
Warnock admits the club tried to sign Chris Wood from West Brom.
The striker has been on loan from the baggies with championship side Millwall.
The 21-year-old New Zealand international has netted eleven times in nineteen appearances for Millwall including the winner against Leeds at the New Den in November.
Wood has agree a deal with fellow championship side Leicester City believed to start in the region of £1.25 million, rising to £2 million and Warnock admitted that he could not compete with Leicester.
Speaking on Yorkshire Radio, Warnock said, "No one can compete with Leicester in our league when they come in for a player."
The news that Leeds cannot compete with Leicester is a reality check for the fans on what we may see spent in January under new owners GFH Capital.
Fans were hoping to see finances in place for the manager to bring in the quality that is needed in the January transfer window to give Leeds a hope of pushing for promotion in the second half of the season.
With little quality usually available in January, it looks like Leeds are still going to struggle financially to compete for any real quality that is available.
