LUKE Varney has his heart set on a move to Leeds United as he seeks a way out of Fratton Park.

And the former Blackpool striker is prepared to turn down offers from other clubs to seal a move to Elland Road this summer.

The 29-year-old has been the subject of much transfer speculation, with Pompey keen to get him off their wage bill.

Sheffield Wednesday have been credited with an interested, but Varney is determined to work under Leeds manager Neil Warnock.

‘The other clubs that have been mentioned are still Championship clubs. But they are not clubs of the size of Leeds,’ said Varney.

‘Neil’s got a great record in the Championship and it’s something I want to be a part of.

‘With coming to Leeds, I can also still get home to see my little child in Leicester and it would be perfect. I’m looking forward to a move to Leeds.’
