And that's what the fans think Leon!

Championship Swansea City
comment on the article

"The only reason that Leon would join another Championship club will be purely a financial decision.If Sheffield are offering more money than a Premiership club, good luck to Leon in his move, but it does prove that money was the only important thing for him and not the wish to be close to his daughter in London or to play at the highest standard." - Deano, Swansea

"A poor choice Leon!, (if this story is true). I'm not sure Sheff Utd are a bigger club than the Swans? I'm not sure he can get massive wages there - especially considering he would have got a testimonial with us? I'm not sure Sheffield is that much nearer to your daughter in London (which was meant to be your main reason for leaving)? Thanks for the years your have put in to your club but if you had joined a premiership club we would have shaken your hand - but this is massively disappointing!!" - shaun thomas, Swansea

"Gutting news if true, remember celebrating with him in the huddle after marc richards had scored up at rochdale to keep us in with a shout of avoiding relegation to the conferance. loved him that day and ive backed him 100% during his ups and downs with the club, I was hoping he would have choosen to move to the supposed premiership teams allgidly after him. moving to a club that finished below us in the table though feels like a stab in the heart leon. I fear for this season, i can see the club realy struggling, what with our best players wanting to move. see richards fears over dazzer prattley as an example. God no, dont let kenny jackett leave us in his wake!" - slumdog trust millionaire, landore

And there you have it folks, he won't be on my profile for much longer!

That makes sense mabon and wise from LB. If he signed then most wouldn't go direct to him.

Cheers Mabon, sounds good. <ok>
Never get us back over the bridge to live, we love the place, we love the people and just happen to support the best team in Wales.
Remember when I first joined 606 last summer and remember Aussie describing The Gower, Swansea Bay and all it's beauty,
should re-issue it again Aussie.<ok>
Got to go and prepare now the Yanks are coming. <laugh>

Shaun, to even think that swansea are anywhere near the club Sheffield United are is just deluding yourself.
Dont get me wrong swansea are a decent club but still struggling to catch their rivals cardiff.
Good luck to swansea in the comming season.

SwindonLad ... last season the standings said Swansea were the better team, I suppose that makes an implied commentary about the quality of the club and it's organization. Let's see where we finish this season versus Sheff Utd, Cardiff and everybody else for that matter.
