Leeds Land Sean
Tuesday 14th Sept, 2004 :: by Jan-Eirik

Sky are reporting that we have won the race to sign West Brom midfielder Sean Gregan.

Kevin Blackwell has been chasing the former Preston man for six weeks and has finally got him for £500,000 after having two previous bids rejected. Cardiff and Nottingham Forest were also linked with Gregan, but Leeds Utd have won the chase for his signature.

Sean has been seeking a move away from The Hawthorns after having a transfer request accepted last month, though this was after Leeds Utd had already declared their interest. By so doing Sean gave up any entitlement to a share of a transfer fee and that in itself may have helped persuade WBA to accept the bid as the hold-up was all about WBA not feeling the they were getting enough for a player who they paid over £1.5m for only two years ago, and a player who captained their promotion side last season.

Manager Kevin Blackwell has been desperate to strengthen his midfield due to small squad size and long term injuries to Seth Johnson, Eirik bakke and even Lucas Radebe who had stepped in to cover midfiled before his injury. Blackwell sees Gregan as a key addition to his squad.

"I'm absolutely delighted because I've been chasing him for ages," said Blackwell.

"He can be an inspirational and influential player for us because he has a wealth of experience."

As a result of the imminent signing Leeds have released midfielders Serge Branco, and trialists Steve Guppy and Craig Hignett over the last few days. Presumably to free-up enough funds to pay Gregan's wages.

The deal is expected to be tied up in time for Sean to make his Leeds debut in their game against Crewe this weekend.
