Leeds admit FA charge on agent

Leeds have pleaded guilty to a Football Association charge of using an unlicensed agent.

The charge relates to the transfer of Anthony Elding from Stockport in January 2008. Elding has since left the club to join Coca-Cola League One rivals Crewe.

A statement on the club’s official website, www.leedsunited.com, read: “Leeds United can confirm that the club has pleaded guilty to the Football Association charge for using an unlicensed agent in respect of the transfer of Anthony Elding from Stockport County in January 2008.

“The club has requested for a personal hearing and no further comment will be made, other than we would like to re-iterate the fact that no payment has been made or is alleged to have been made to the agent involved in respect of the transfer.”
