Leeds Utd Accept Norwich Bid For Howson

Leeds Utd have confirmed that they have accepted a bid from Norwich City for Captain Jonny Howson.

The 23-year-old, whose deal at Elland Road expires in the summer had “expressed a desire to play Premier League football at the earliest opportunity”.

Howson who has been out of action since December because of a knee injury came through the Club’s Apprenticeship programme in 2007. He has since made over 200 appearances for the Yorkshire Club scoring 28 goals.

Leeds admitted their disappointment at not being able to secure the former England Under-21 international on a longer deal in a Club statement on their website:

“The Club has been in discussions with the player about a new contract at Elland Road for more than 12 months, but he has been steadfast in his position that he would like the opportunity to play Premier League football,”

“On that basis Jonny hasn’t felt in a position to commit himself to Leeds United at this moment in time. The player would be able to leave on a free transfer at the end of his current contract.”

“While accepting the offer on Tuesday the player has still to agree terms with Norwich and we are disappointed the matter has become public at this stage.”
