Ex-Trialist Set For Return?

Jermaine Beckford looks set to leave Leeds United after being transfer listed and Queens Park Rangers are one of the favourites to capture his signature.

QPR have been made second favourites at 10/1 to snap up the want-away striker behind Newcastle United and 'A Premier League Club` who both sit at eights.

Beckford trialled with Queens Park Rangers on two occasions after leaving Chelsea in 2003, following a successful spell with Isthmian Premier League side Wealdstone.

The Daily Mirror attributed 'suspect temperament` as the reason for failing to make the grade at Loftus Road.

After leaving Chelsea, Wealdstone snapped up the striker and loaned him out to Uxbridge for a brief period. He returned to fire 54 goals in 82 appearances for the Stones and attract interest from Football League clubs.

Eventually the forward made the move to Leeds United with a number of sides looking to snap up his signature. He was loaned out to Carlisle United then Scunthorpe United in League One and after playing every game in his loan spell snapped up eight goals to help the Iron secure the title.

In Beckford the Whites had a hot commodity with the young forward bagging 54 goals in 82 games - but two successive seasons in which Leeds have failed to get promoted have cost them dear with Jermaine looking to move on to pastures new.

He's not someone I'd spend more than 1m on, he's never done it at this level before and Leeds are desperate to get shot of him. I think his wage demands will be high...

But will he be any better than what we've got now, I have to ask?

That's the point Sandy, it's a gamble, we know he can score goals at a lower level but we've never seen him this high. I don't think 1m would be too steep to find out but we don't want to be held to ransom.

As a Leeds fan, I have to say, probably. He should be good enough for mid-table Championship football and perhaps higher ;-) His goals/game ratio is high and he has scored some great goals, not just tap-ins. He has pace and can beat people. With a better first touch he could easily have scored more goals this year. Note that he was missing through injury or suspension for around 10 games this year and still hit 34 goals....

Well I think it's predictable what I'm going to say next... it's impossible that he'd be any worse than Hell-guson. I reckon he's worth a pop, cos who else is out there at the moment to buy with a proven scoring record, even at a lower level? Simon Cox'll be too expensive. Maybe Kevin Phillips'll decide he doesn't want to step up the Prem again? Fingers crossed.
