Leeds hopeful of signing veteran Dickov

Leeds boss Simon Grayson is still hopeful that Leeds will be able to sign experienced striker Paul Dickov before the end of the season - despite FIFA blocking the move. Currently players can represent a maximum of two clubs in one season in the same country and the 37-year-old former Scotland international has already played for Championship sides Leicester and Derby.

Dickov trained with the Yorkshire side last week and will return for a second time later this week after a short spell on trial with MLS side Toronto FC in their training camp in Florida.

Leeds boss Simon Grayson told the Yorkshire Evening Post: ""We are trying to investigate a way round it. I won't say it will definitely happen but he looked fit and lively in training.

"Dickov has gone to America and he will have a look but he will be back with us on Wednesday or Thursday. We can then see where we are with FIFA and UEFA. He is a player I like - he has played for me before and I want competition for places."
