Austin, Diouf And Norris

Description: Rodolph Austin United's Jamaican Midfielder, El Hadji Diouf the Senegalese Forward and English Midfielder David Norris all on the Elland Road pitch waiting for the game kick off. The shot coming from the Football League Championship game against Hull City at the KC Stadium on the 29th December, 2012. Both Austin and Norris played the full game for Leeds while Diouf was replaced on 90 minutes by Andy Gray.

After weeks of speculation manager Neil Warnock finally captured the signature of Rodolph Austin. The Jamaican International Midfielder signed for Leeds on the 23rd July, 2012. Coming from Norwegian outfit SK Brann the tough tackling Midfielder's cost to The Whites was 300k. Austin revealed he always wanted to join United as soon as he heard the Club was interested, with Eirik Bakke his former teammate at Brann and former United Midfielder being a major influence. Rodolph made his debut for Leeds in the Football League Cup game against Shrewsbury Town on the 11th August, 2012. The player days before his debut told the official site: "I can't speak for the fans, but I'm a person who likes to win and I always try and do my best. It's for them to judge me... Fans like players who play with passion and I think it's up to them to be honest, but I'll keep doing what I'm doing."

The United manager Neil Warnock signed El Hadji Diouf the Senegalese international for the Whites on the 9th August, 2012 on a non-contract basis from Doncaster Rovers. Diouf is a controversial figure in the game and came to Elland Road carrying more than his fare share of baggage, the United manager himself referred to Diouf as being 'lower than a sewer rat' after an incident at Ewood Park which saw Jamie Mackie stretchered off with multiple fractures to his leg. The fans at Elland Road were initially split on the decision to sign the Senegal forward but despite that contention he will always get the faithful's support while he is giving 100% in a White shirt. Diouf made his debut appearance for Leeds coming on as substitute in the Football League Cup game against Shrewsbury Town on the 11th August, 2012.

Manager Neil Warnock captured the signature of David Norris on the 26th July, 2012. The fancied Midfielder had attracted interest from a host of other clubs before the Whites Boss Warnock had made it clear that United had renewed their interest in the player. Norris was previously linked with a move to Elland Road the previous Summer. Coming on a free transfer David Norris the Midfielder is one of four new Summer signings from troubled League One outfit Portsmouth FC. He made his debut for Leeds in the Football League Cup game against Shrewsbury Town on the 11th August, 2012. Manager Warnock said: "I think David always wanted to sign for us... It was just tying up everything and being able to give him the go-ahead. There's a number of clubs he's spoken to who were hoping and hanging on for him so it's good to put it over the line."

Leeds United: Kenny, Byram, Tate, Pearce, Peltier, Green, Norris, Austin, McCormack, Becchio, Diouf.
Subs: Gray for Diouf.
