Let Leon Knight Return To Football

304 Signatures Goal: 500

3 Years ago Leon signed a two year contract with Rushden & Diamonds, he breached the terms of his contract and was sacked. His contract had an option of a years extension. When Rushden sacked Knight he was told he could no longer play football in England until his contract had expired. This month Knight agreed to sign for Darlington F.C. after waiting out his 2 years, however Rushden are demanding a 30k fee for the player and have taken the option to extend his contract up. This is surely against Leon's rights. Leon's trade is a footballer. This is like you being sacked from your job and then not being allowed to go on and do the same job elsewhere in the same country. It may have been the right decision to make Leon wait out the initial 2 years, but to extend his contract after sacking him and with no intentions of playing him again is surely against his rights. Despite choosing to take up the extra year on his contract thus restricting him from his trade, they are also not paying him the wages that he is entitled to according to his contract. Hopefully we can get enough names for the PFA and Rushden to take notice.
