The report has claimed that Fleetwood Town will likely hold out for ‘a significant six-figure sum’ as compensation fee, unless it goes to a tribunal.

The Daily Mail reported last month interest in Feeney from Leeds, adding that the West Yorkshire club have made contact with League One side Fleetwood.
