This is the way of the football world. Another club offers the agent more money and the player immediately wants off. When this sort of thing is happening to Arsenal (Nasri and Fabregas), Manchester City (Tevez), Manchester Utd (Ronaldo) and Liverpool (Torres) we in the second tier have no chance of getting off the tragic roundabout.

erni is spot on, I can believe that Gradel would have signed a new deal at the end of last season but his agents got in his head. Leeds should have sorted this out in January and not allowed him to get to the end of the season with only a year left on his contract. When will they learn. Who next?
