Goodbye Leon, Au Revoir Seb Carole
Leon Constantine has joined Northampton, as Leeds United give Seb Carole permission to take part in a trial with Le Havre.
Constantine joins the Cobblers after a dismal spell at Elland Road. The striker joined Leeds after finishing the 2006/07 season as top scorer for Port Vale in League One. A season of injuries and a return to fitness, albeit with Oldham Athletic were not enough to secure Leon an extension to his deal, and he has been allowed to depart the club on a free transfer.
On Constantine, Gary McAllister told Leedsunited.com:
"I've spoken with Leon and like a number of players I can't guarantee them regular football.
"Leon is at a stage in his career where he needs to be playing regular football and hopefully this move will enable him to do that."
Meanwhile, midfielder Seb Carole it has been announced has joined French Ligue 1 Orange side Le Havre on a trial, having failed to impress the new Leeds United boss. Carole joined the club in 2006, however the brief flashes of promise have ultimately come to nothing, and Carole now looks set to sign for last seasons Ligue 2 Orange Champions.
Vital Leeds United wishes both players all the best for the future!
