Potential Signing Gutted At Snub
Potential Alex signing Anthony Elding has admitted he is gutted at Leeds United wanting to sell him.
The former Stockport striker is in talks with Crewe about a move to Gresty Road after the club had an undisclosed fee accepted last week. It comes just five months after Elding rejected a move to Crewe in favour of Leeds United when he left Stockport.
Steve Holland is hoping to convince Elding to make the switch this time round and news on Elding's decision is expected imminently.
Elding, however, is finding it hard to leave the club his family have been life long fans of but having made just one start in a Leeds United shirt he knows chances will be few and far between if he stays.
Speaking to yorkshireeveningpost.co.uk, Elding told of his disappointment:
'I'm gutted. I never got a chance and I feel a bit hard done by.
'I said to Gary, 'look, I've got a two-year contract, I want to honour that contract, I want to stay at Leeds United. But it's no good me sitting around if I'm not going to be part of something. I'm a striker, I need to play football'.
'I don't want to leave - 100 per cent. I love the club, my family love the club and it's a massive club to play for. But at the end of the day I'm a footballer and whether it's Leeds United or Boston United I need to play football.
'From a personal point of view, I've got to move on. There's no point me dwelling on what might have been.'
