Midfielder Johnson to leave Leeds
Seth Johnson
Johnson's wages were costing Leeds 35,000 a week
Leeds midfielder Seth Johnson is to leave the club after his contract was cancelled by mutual consent.

Johnson, who had another 11 months to run on his contract, joined Leeds from Derby in October 2001 in a 7.75m move.

Leeds were keen to offload Johnson as they would have had to have paid Derby another 250,000 if he had played another game.

The 26-year-old, who has been capped once by England, will now be able to join another club on a free transfer.

In April Leeds chairman Ken Bates had said Johnson's best chance of playing for the club would be in the reserves.

Johnson's wages were costing Leeds 35,000 a week.

The midfielder, who injured his knee ligaments in April 2004, played 59 times for Leeds and scored four goals while he was at Elland Road.
