Rodolph Austin Set to Miss Preston Friendly

Leeds United fans will have to wait to see new signing Rodolph 'The beast' Austin, as the midfielder has been unable to finalise his entry visa into the UK.

The Jamaican international has agreed a deal from Norwegian side SK Brann, with the deal thought to be around £300,000.

Austin is currently in Jamaica waiting to collect his entry visa after obtaining his work permit last week.

Speaking about the setback Neil Warnock said:

"We had hoped to have him with us for Saturday, but it's looking like it will be Sunday when he gets here so Tuesday could be his first game."

Warnock is hoping to welcome back Paddy Kenny and Luciano Becchio back into his squad for the game at Deepdale. Ahead of the game, Warnock is hoping to complete a signing of one more player, with rumours suggesting it will be Lee Peltier.
