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

Leeds Unhappy About Swoop

... Olivier Bernard was named as the 'class Premiership defender' Glenn Roeder promised the Toon faithful.


Many fans were a bit disappointed, but so too was Leeds United chief executive Shaun Harvey. He claims Bernard turned his back on the club to rejoin Newcastle.

Leeds believed they had a verbal agreement after agreeing terms with him.

Harvey: 'Terms were agreed with the player for him to join Leeds, subject only to him passing a medical. The player has since reneged on the agreement reached and joined Newcastle United.

'We are, both disappointed and relieved, as we would have very much liked Olivier Bernard to strengthen our squad. But if he did not want to play for Leeds United it is better to find out now, as we are only interested in players who are fully committed to the club.'
