Leeds United manager David Hockaday has refused to be drawn on potential interest from the Whites in Rotherham United forward Kieran Agard.

The former Arsenal youth player is thought to be wanted by Leeds, who have added significantly to their squad over the summer and are continuing efforts to bring in further additions.

Rotherham boss Steve Evans has suggested Leeds are keen on Agard, but Hockaday insists he is not prepared to discuss every player who is linked with a move to Elland Road.

"Any players that we may or may not be interested in…if somebody signs on the dotted line I'll talk chapter and verse on that player", he told a press conference.


"Until that time it's wrong of me to comment on anything because then you'll ask about another player and another player and we could be here all day, so I'll pass on that one", the Leeds boss added.


Agard started life in the youth ranks at Arsenal, before switching to join Everton in 2005.

He made his debut for the Toffees in a League Cup clash in 2009, but was subsequently sent on loan at Peterborough United and Kilmarnock.

Agard was released by Everton in the summer of 2011 and snapped up by Yeovil, where he remained until parting ways with the club and joining Rotherham.
