LUFC Bates hits out at Johnson
Leeds United chairman Ken Bates has been quick to point out his side of the Bradley Johnson transfer saga.
Johnson was placed on the transfer list recently after failing to agree a new deal at Elland Road.
The midfielder stated in the Yorkshire Evening Post earlier this week that there had been a break down in communication and that he wanted to stay at Elland Road but wanted to be on similar money to the highest earners.
Bates however sees it very different, speaking on Yorkshire Radio, Bates said, "As far as we are concerned with Bradley, he was earning more than the Prime Minister.
"We made him a good offer and his agent demanded considerably more than we are prepared to pay. We increased our offer once more and that`s it."
The 23 year old was booed from the pitch when substituted during the game against Crystal Palace on Saturday, with the fans showing him exactly what they think.
