Leeds United Players - 2007-08 Season - Coca-Cola League One - Defenders


      Jamie Clapham

Leeds United
Nickname
Height 5' 9" 
Weight  
Date of birth 7/12/1975
Place of birth Lincoln
Position Defender
Nationality English
Int. Caps None 
Signed 20 August 2007 
Fee LOAN from Wolves
Term 21/11/2007
Squad number 24


Wolves left-back Jamie Clapham joined Leeds United on loan until 30 September 2007.

Jamie has played over 300 senior games for Tottenham Hotspur, Ipswich Town, Birmingham City and Wolves.

The loan was due to the prevaling shortage of defenders at the club which was exacerbated by the confirmation that Eddie Lewis had completed his late move to Derby County. Although Eddie usually played left midfield he also played let back for the USA international side and was a useful back-up for Leeds United in that position.

Jamie was clearly a direct replacement for the cover that Eddie provided.

Dennis Wise released the club's other left-back Stephen Crainey after a poor season during the releagtion from the Championship.

Clapham wore #24, which was Rui Marques' number last season (2006-07). Rui had been promoted to squad number 5.

Eventually Jamie's loan was extended until 21/11/2007. He made twelve starts and one sub appearance in League One and two sub appearances in cup games. Leeds United lost only one game in which he appeared and he was a key member of the side that equalled the club record of seven consecutive wins at the start of the season. He was therefore one of the players who helped make a mockery of the Football League's 15 point penalty - and Jamie will always have the thanks of Leeds United fans for that fact.

He returned to Wolves where he was eventually given a free transfer to fellow Championship side Leicester City on the January transfer deadline day, 31/1/2008. He made eleven league appearances for the Foxes but they were relegated to join Leeds in League One for the 2008-09 season. Jamie was released by Leicester on 1/6/2008.
