Michael Stewart set for Leeds United deal? TSS February 6, 2011 Leeds United 33 Comments Sky Sports is reporting that Leeds United have beaten off competition from Blackpool for the signature of former Manchester United, Hearts and Hibernian player, Michael Stewart. The 29-year old is currently unattached after terminating his contract with Turkish side Genclerbirligi following a dispute over missed payments. Stewart’s career has been one involving several transfers and loan deals and the midfielder has struggled to maintain a lengthy spell at any club after falling out of favour or succumbing to injury. His most notable spell was with Hearts where he made 87 appearances from 2007-2010 scoring 12 times and earning the club captaincy for his final year.
