Spurs thrashed Leeds' Yorkshire rivals Sheffield United last weekend, with Real Madrid loan man Gareth Bale rolling back the years by bagging a stunning hat-trick in the 4-0 rout.

Speaking ahead of this Saturday's game, Whites striker Patrick Bamford discussed the fallout from the Brighton loss, and revealed: “We analysed it all and he just said he wanted to get it all out of the way and done and dusted so we can concentrate on Spurs.

“There were things that we didn't do right - we didn't move enough, we didn't attack the way we wanted to, we didn't defend the way we wanted to so you can pretty much sum it up by saying nothing went the way we planned.

“Personally, I feel like when you have a game like that, you are kind of busting to get back out there. You just want to get back on a good run again and play a match how you are supposed to play it, not like that.”

Meanwhile, down in the Championship, it's set to be a dramatic final day of the season, with Yorkshire sides Rotherham United and Sheffield Wednesday involved in fierce relegation scrap while, conversely, Barnsley are set to discover their opponents for the play-off semi-finals.

Here are today's biggest transfer stories and the latest team news involving Leeds United, Rotherham United and a number of other sides from Yorkshire and beyond, as the reaction to the weekend's action continues:
