LUFC Grayson - City paid over the odds for Howson
Leeds United boss Simon Grayson believes Norwich City have paid over the odds for Jonny Howson after he signed for the canaries last week.
Leeds agreed a fee with Norwich before the player agreed personal terms and passed a medical with the Norfolk club..
Speaking on Yorkshire Radio, Grayson said, "We lost Jonny Howson because it was a good deal for the club and Norwich have probably paid over the odds for a player who was out of contract in a few months` time."
The Leeds club captain signed a three and a half year deal at Carrow Road in a deal worth a reported £2 million deal.
Howson has been on the sidelines with a knee injury since the start of December and is expecting to be out for around another month.
The 23 year old was out of contract at Elland Road in the summer and he would have been available on a Bosman free transfer having turned 24 before the end of his Leeds deal.
