non-league hosts Guiseley were sunk in a 4-3 thriller in Leeds United's fifth pre-season friendly.

Social media platforms were sent into a frenzy on Thursday afternoon as pictures emerged of United’s long-term summer transfer target Matej Vydra in Leeds city centre.

United chose not to comment on speculation that a move to United might finally be in the offing after seemingly having hit a stumbling block when the Derby County forward increased his wage demands. It was easy to forget there was a football match to play as not for the first time this summer, matters on the pitch played second fiddle to developments off it.
