Leeds to persist with struggling striker Payne

Leeds boss Simon Grayson will persevere with former Swindon striker Billy Paynter after a difficult first season at Elland Road. The 26 year old finishing the campaign with just one league goal to his name.

There has been speculation that Leeds are set to offload Paynter, but Grayson has confirmed he still rates the player.

"I've had no enquiries for Billy," Grayson told the Yorkshire Evening Post.

"He had a stop-start season last year, but I'm not looking to get rid of him because he's a good player. When he did come into the team, he showed his quality."
