Neil Warnock On The Transfer Update:
"We're a bit thin. As we talk there could be two within the next 24 hours. We're doing medicals on Monday afternoon so there's more news on the horizon.
We've got one down with us and one of the lads is having a medical at Thorp Arch and if that goes well we'll complete that one."
On The Trip To Cornwall:
"It's a matter of blending the lads we've got in. The weather is great and I'm sure our fans will enjoy it this week. The lads are relaxed and they will work very, very hard which is what it's about at this stage.
Both games are on decent pitches, they're not far away, it's like a carnival night for them. It's nice to put a bit back into Cornwall. It's amazing we sold the tickets we did at Torquay - and Tavistock and Bodmin are two great clubs and I'd ask our fans to behave and they'll have a great time."
Aidan White On His New Three Year Deal:
"It's fantastic to get everything sorted. I've been at the club since I was eight and I didn't want to leave. I came back in pre-season wanting to stay.
I spoke to the manager who said he wanted me to stay and that we would try and get things done this week. That was a real positive and I'm looking to crack on for the season now.
I've spoken with the gaffer about how he sees things position-wise and I think he sees that attacking role, but also that I can play full back if needed.
He's said to me to try and make an impact and that's what I'm looking to do. He'd talked about me being a part of his plans which was great and I don't think it was ever a case of him wanting me to go. He has a great record as a manager and hopefully he can take us into the Premiership.
Having been here such a long time, the aim is to do well here and for us to get to the Premiership. The gaffer has the experience, the squad he is building is more than capable, and hopefully it will be an exciting season."
Strong Squad Expected For First Pre-Season Game
Neil Warnock on the Farsley Game:
"I want them to work hard. They'll be training Friday morning as well.
It's not a rest and a game, it'll be like the second training session of the day.
Ideally, if I can I'll give everyone half a game that's what I'd like to do, but we'll have to wait and see who plays.
There might be one or two little niggles we want to rest and we go away next week as well for three games, but if I can I want to try and use as many as I can."
Warnock's thoughts on players returning to Thorp Arch:
"We start on the 11th although a few came in earlier than that. Lads look after themselves nowadays and so they should . It's a different ball game to what it used to be. We'll look to have a good week's training before we start with the game at Farsley.
We'll have a good week away, down in Cornwall, and we'll have a vast amount of fans down there to watch our games and an open training session, probably on the Tuesday.
It's just a week where we train morning and afternoon and play games at night.
Although the games are important the results are unimportant because you won't be relaxing like you do in a session with all the training. The game are just another fitness session. I also think being away bonds the lads very well."
Jason Pearce can't wait to get going:
"The work begins now. I've done a bit over the summer, but once you come back in the work starts a lot harder."
"You do quite a bit over the summer, but you do it on your own and sometimes it's harder when you're on your own. When you're with others they push you."
"But we do get fitness programmes and try to follow them so we're in a good shape when we come back, otherwise we'd be in a fat club trying to work it off. Most players come back in good shape."
"You don't look forward to doing the running when you come back, but after that you can crack on. Once you're back it flies by, hopefully we'll do well in pre-season and get ready for the new season."
On Tom Lees and meeting new team mates:
"It's the first time I've met him. He seems a nice guy and hopefully we'll be able to strike up a partnership if we're lucky enough to play together."
"There'll be a few more faces as well, you get to know the lads in pre-season, get away for a bit, and strike up a good bond."
"We've got some good players at the minute. Hopefully we'll get some good bonds, and have a good start. It is tough with Wolves first up, but I'm looking forward to it and a packed Elland Road will be unbelievable if I'm lucky enough and if I'm selected."
Warnock on the pursuit of his targets:
"While there's not been much news I've been very, very busy over the past few weeks making enquiries as you've got to do."
"You've got to do your homework and put things into place. We've got our targets and we're hoping that in the next couple of weeks we can start bringing more in so we can have a full supplement as soon as we can during pre-season."
"It's a matter of trying to find out who is available and what the situation is. You look at the cost, their wages, and see where we are. All I say to the supporters is just wait and see how we are early on. I'd ask the fans to trust in me, I'm working for them as well as the club."
"I think they all know we need a big influx of players and that's what I'm looking to do. We won't get all our targets but it's important that we get them in as soon as possible because it gives us a chance to bed them in for the new season."
On the potential takeover:
"Everyone knows we need a number of players and I think if anything the negotiations have got to be a good thing."
"But I don't think it's for me to talk about. I'm just concentrating on getting my targets and trying to bring them in as soon as possible as I have done in the past few weeks."
"With being on the inside maybe I do know more than other people, but there's not a lot to tell you at this moment in time."
Dougie Freedman on rumours linking him with a move for Ross McCormack:
"Ross is a fantastic player and I do know him quite well, but it might be a little far-fetched to suggest anything"
"You are never close to a deal until a player puts pen to paper, but we are active in trying to do one or two deals."
"But we have got a bit more integrity in how we do stuff than to discuss it through the papers and we will do our business in the right way."
Warnock on his plans for the next few weeks:
"I’m going along working as hard as I can now and we know we need players. I think the club know I need help and they are trying to do it. Only time will tell. I know I’ve got to do a lot of work between now and the start of the season to recruit the right players. Hopefully, we can get moving along in the next couple of weeks."
"Looking at our fixtures makes you realise how difficult a league this is. But it’s a great opening fixture against Wolves. I’d rather be playing them at home than Peterborough and that’s no disrespect to Peterborough. Elland Road has got to become a fortress if we have got any chance. We’ve got to set our stall out; that’s why it’s important that we do our business in the next few weeks. We’ve got a lot of work to do. Let’s hope we can get things done."
Warnock on United's tricky start to the season:
"It's a great fixture to start with. You can't really have a better game than that to start off with. We start with Wolves at home then Blackpool away, and you couldn't have two much tougher games than that. Peterborough as well will be a toughie down there."
"Then you look at the next four games with Blackburn, Cardiff, Hull and Forest. That just shows what a great league this is. People will talk a tough start to the season and it is, but the six teams we face first up will also be looking at their starts and thinking 'we've got Leeds'. It's my job to make it as difficult as possible for those teams."
Warnock on the next few weeks:
"The main thing I'm concentrating on is the squad and what we can do to strengthen. I know what I'm looking to achieve before the start of the season to give us the best opportunity of finishing as high as we can, and that process is ongoing."
