Tweet causes Leeds United player to have contract terminated

Leeds United 2

Former Southend United midfielder Ryan Hall has been released by Leeds United, after a tweet he aimed at the club.

Leeds United winger Ryan Hall has seen his contract terminated, after he breached club disciplinary guidelines.

Frustrated at a lack of playing time, Hall responded on Twitter by posting the following tweet: 

"Look on the bright side if your (sic) not getting played take the L out and get payed (sic)."

The comment, which angered fans of the Yorkshire club, prompted the club to suspend Hall, 25.

The winger joined the Championship side after an initial loan spell, having impressed Neil Warnock during his time with League Two side Southend United.

Having failed to cement a place in the Leeds first team this season under the watch of new manager Brian McDermott, Hall moved on loan to League One side Sheffield United.

Ryan Hall made five appearances for Sheffield United during his spell with the Blades, but failed to register a goal.

In his thirteen month stay at Leeds United he registered just nine competitive appearances.

As a result of his tweet, Hall has now been released from his contract at Elland Road.

He is now free to find a new club.
