As exclusively revealed on FLW earlier this week, the Yorkshire club are eyeing a move for the 29-year-old midfielder, and look set to make a move for the Millwall man.

According to FLW sources, the deal between Leeds and Millwall will involve Leeds midfielder Michael Tonge joining the Lions on loan in return for Woolford.

The winger has a wealth of experience plying his trade in the Football League, having had spells at York City, Scunthorpe United, Bristol City and Millwall.

Arguably, Woolford’s most profitable spell in-terms of appearances and goals came at Scunthorpe United, where he accumulated 103 appearances, scoring 15 goals.

The midfielder signed for Millwall in January 2013 on a two-and-a-half year deal from Bristol City, and he has accumulated over 70 appearances for the Lions.

Leeds United defeated Huddersfield Town 2-1 courtesy of a late Billy Sharp winner on Saturday, in a game which saw the Whites rise to 19th in the Sky Bet Championship.

The win gives Redfearn successive wins in the league following their 1-0 win over league leaders AFC Bournemouth on the 20th January.

Redfearn spoke of his delight after the dramatic win over the Terriers, telling BBC Sport:

“It was a great win because it sends out a message. It’s a culmination of the four matches and is similar to when I was caretaker.

“We have two wins and two draws and we are going in the right direction.”
