A former Leeds United loanee has allegedly won his claim against the club for lost earnings.

According to a report from the Yorkshire Evening Post, Cameron Stewart has won his compensation claim against Leeds United and will receive at least £500,000.

The report cites unnamed sources close to the player, who currently plays for Ipswich Town.

The 24-year-old’s claim came about after Leeds pulled out of a deal to sign the winger last summer, with the Elland Road club allegedly withdrawing their offer of a permanent deal when the Football League noticed problems with the paperwork and sent it back.

That came after the player had arrived at Leeds on an initial loan spell from Hull City, and with the deal signed by former managing director David Haigh and owner Massimo Cellino allegedly claiming the deal was invalid, Stewart had to seek out an alternative club.

That club was Ipswich, from whom he joined Barnsley on loan earlier this season, but it is now being claimed that Stewart has won at least £500,000 in his claim for unpaid wages.

As cited in the report, Leeds have not commented at this stage, and nor have Stewart’s representatives.
