'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Bakke told to leave

Eirik Bakke has been told by Leeds he has no future at the club.

In a statement released by the club, Shaun Harvey said: 'It is in the club's best interests for Eirik to move on,

'At the present time Eirik is back in Norway trying, along with his advisers, to find another club before the transfer window shuts at the end of the month.

'While the level of his salary is in no way his fault, it is preventing the club from moving forward as quickly as we would like.

'We have a contract with Eirik which, if he does not find another club, we will have to honour but there are certain parts of it, in particular some appearance related payments which now, effectively, will prohibit him from playing for us in the long run.'

in a way im glad he's gone but he is class in midfield but that 23,000 a week is ridiculous, now we can hopefully get some more players in for his wage
leeds-til-i-die
good now its time for a new era and some decent players to play along the likes of frazer richardson, david healy and matthew kilgallon

HEALY.

if he was on 23 grand a week that was a bit much for a championship player. some good prem players dont even get that.
swanzboichris
its because hes made vgood effort

Good luck eirik always gave 100% for the team but we do need to lose the wages, we could bring in 2 or 3 players for that money
