Snodgrass backing Leeds to beat Wigan for McArthur

Leeds United winger Rod Snodgrass has backed the club's move for Hamilton midfielder James McArthur.

The Scottish Sun says Wigan had looked odds on to link him up with his ex-Accies team-mate James McCarthy at the DW Stadium.

Boyhood idols Rangers were also keen to land him.

Now Leeds could move to the front of the queue with their big-money bid.

Snodgrass remembers how the club dealt with him after making the step up and reckons the same warm welcome would greet McArthur.

He said: "What James chooses to do is up to him. It's his decision if he wants to make the step to Leeds. What I will say is everyone was so nice when I came here. Everyone looks at us as a big club and the name maybe attracts you.

"It's not just the players and the push for promotion. He'll have options but what I can say to him is coming to Leeds would be great for him because everyone's so friendly.

"The place is lovely, the city's lovely and I'm sure he'd play a big part in things if things go the way Leeds want them to go."
