FORMER Doncaster Rovers midfielder Paul Green has admitted he would be “gutted” if manager Neil Warnock keeps his promise and opts to walk away from Leeds United at the end of the season.

Ex Sheffield United boss Warnock’s appointment in February 2012 was one of the main reasons Green chose to sign for Leeds when his contract expired at Derby last summer. He said: “When I signed here he was a big factor in my decision. I’d like him to stay on. You’d have to ask him, but for me I’d be gutted if he did leave because think he’s a top manager.”

Cardiff midfielder Aron Gunnarsson has signed a two-year contract extension with the Bluebirds, keeping him with the Championship leaders until 2016.

The Iceland international, aged 23, has been a regular in Malky Mackay’s high-flying side, making 39 appearances this season and scoring seven times. Gunnarsson is coming to the end of his second season with the club since moving from Coventry in the summer of 2011.

Charlton striker Jordan Cook has joined League One Yeovil on loan for a month.

Cook, 23, who has made nine Addicks appearances this season, began his career with Sunderland and spent loan spells with Darlington, Walsall and Carlisle before signing for the Black Cats back in July. Cook was Charlton’s first summer signing last year on a free transfer following his release from hometown club Sunderland, but hasn’t appeared in the Addicks first team since January.
