While Leeds United shouldn't be incredibly busy during this version of Deadline Day, there is certainly some player movement that should be tracked. After the jump is a running stream of who is no longer a part of Neil Redfearn's squad and who will be calling Elland Road home very soon.

Michael Tonge: The 31-year-old midfielder has been loaned out to Millwall, who currently sits in 22nd place in the Championship standings. Tonge has only featured 12 times this season and last appeared for the Whites in the Boxing Day loss to Wigan. The Englishman's contract is also set to expire at the season's end, so it appears as though Tonge has sung his last song for the Yorkshire club.

Rodolph Austin: There has been abundant speculation that the Jamaican international could be on his way to Wigan, but it appears as though no deal will be finalized. Austin, who has burst back on the scene and been at the core of Leeds' four game unbeaten streak, has expressed an unwavering desire to stay and fight for his teammates and manager. According to Phil Hay of the Yorkshire Evening Post, Austin was present at training, further cementing that the midfielder is not on his way out of the club.

Edgar Cani: In what what constitutes another loan deal, the 25-year-old striker will deploy his services at Leeds for the remainder of the season. Signed from Catania of the Italian Serie B, Cani will fight for minutes up top with the likes of Mirco Antenucci, Billy Sharp, Steve Morison, and Souleymane Doukara. The Albanian international appears to be more of a target man and could fit nicely into the lone striker position of the 4-2-3-1 formation. Additionally, Cani has scored three times this season for Catania in fourteen appearances.

David Norris: The 33-year-old's contract with the club was mutually terminated today. While not a transfer in the traditional sense, Norris is still leaving Leeds and available for other clubs. The midfielder has been unable to crack the game-day roster as of late, so this move makes sense for both parties.

That's all there is to report from Leeds' camp, but be sure to check back throughout the day for updates.
