Grayson hopes days of Leeds selling best players now over

Leeds United boss Simon Grayson is hopeful the days of selling their best players are over.

For today's FA Cup tie, Tottenham's former Leeds players Robbie Keane and Danny Rose could feature against their old club, though Aaron Lennon's groin injury means a third misses out.

"We'd love for the likes of Keane and Lennon to still be in our team, but that's football," said Grayson, a little wistfully. "We went through that episode of selling our best players just to survive, and other clubs benefited, but we have to move on. Other players are coming through who will take the club ­forward, and this is another chance for them to show what they're all about."
