Leeds United man reportedly fuming after failed transfer

According to reliable Journalist Alan Nixon, Leeds United goalkeeper Andy Lonergan is “fuming” after his transfer to Sunderland broke down.

The Black Cats were keen to make Lonergan their new first-choice goalkeeper as they look to avoid relegation from the Championship and the 34-year-old was also said to be keen on moving to the Stadium of Light.

Talks however broke down and Lonergan was forced to remain with Leeds were he is likely to continue serving as back-up to first-choice Felix Wiedwald.

Black Cats boss Chris Coleman then went on to sign Lee Camp on loan from Cardiff City. Lonergan joined the Whites during the summer and has found first team opportunities hard to come by as he has gone on to make just several appearances in the Championship.

He did manage to displace Wiedwald for a short period of time, though the 34-year-old was unable to cement the first-choice position as his own following a series of unconvincing displays.
