Leeds defender rejects move

Published Add your comment

Leeds United defender Andy O'Brien turned down a move to Bristol City on deadline day in the loan window last week.

The Irish defender, who is surplus to requirements at Elland Road after refusing to play for the club has the opportunity to make the move to The Robins last week.

However, O'Brien turned down an 18-month contract to stay with Leeds, to the fury of chairman Ken Bates.

“We’re evaluating the situation and in the process of deciding how to go forward," said Bates.

“Clearly Andy doesn’t want to play for Leeds anymore and something has to be done.”

The 32-year-old may now be left to rot in the reserves at Leeds, before potentially moving on in the January transfer window.
