Outside the Box: If Beckford stays put, the Stones won't be rolling in it

The increasing likelihood of Leeds United's Jermaine Beckford seeing out the season at Elland Road has been greeted with dismay at non-League Wealdstone, alma mater of Stuart Pearce and Vinnie Jones. The Ryman League club, who sold him to Leeds for about £45,000 in 2006, are due to receive 20 per cent of any future transfer, and were rubbing their hands when Newcastle United recently offered £1.8m for the striker – one-fifth of which amounts to a cool £360,000. Leeds seem prepared to risk losing him for nothing when his contract expires in June, which means that the hard-up Stones will not receive a penny. "It would be heartbreaking for the club," a spokesman told Outside The Box. "That sort of money would ensure our mid-term future." One (very) small consolation is the raffle with which Wealdstone have sold off naming rights to their newly developed Vale Stadium, a home at last after almost 20 nomadic years of ground-sharing; that honour has been won for the next 15 months by St George's Shopping Centre, Harrow.

Hence the list of names below associated with clubs such as Chelsea and Tottenham, who have insisted they will not be going to market this month.
