The loss of Clayton to mighty Huddersfield Town must be a huge disappointment. I was impressed with him last season and not only because of the way he took his chance to equalise at Upton Park. The boy looks like a proper footballer to me and I think he has a future.
So what is really going on at Leeds? Surely Clayton was worth retaining, if only as a squad player. His wage demands can't have been that high if Huddersfield can meet them, so what's happening exactly? The "We are billionaires" boast of the flat capped whippet owners sounds a tad hollow when Huddersfield Town can tempt away one of the better young players on Leeds' books!
