Too Far Apart Over Personal Terms

30 June 2015

Steve Davis explains why club moved on from Greg Leigh approach

Steve Davis has revealed to the club’s official that Greg Leigh’s ‘personal demands’ made a permanent deal impossible.

The Crewe Alexandra boss has admitted that the former Manchester City full-back was his first choice but he states that he has one or two other options to fill the left-back void.

The Alex boss told “Any deal for Greg (Leigh) is dead. I would have liked him to stay and he was my first choice for the left-back position but his demands were well above what we had offered and we have to move on. I haven't been access to speak to Greg and I've not spoken to his agent for over a week, so it has all fizzled out.

“We made Greg and his representative an offer a while ago now and we couldn’t get close on the personal terms to make it happen. We have a few in mind who could be available to us and a left-back and two midfield players remain our priority at the moment.”
