Couldn't have happened to a nicer player!

Quote
Knight, 28, joined Rushden in August 2008 but was sacked four months later following what the club called "continuous breaches of the club's code of conduct".

However, Rushden retained his playing registration for the duration of his two-year contract, meaning he could not sign for another club in England until this summer.

Knight, who had been playing in Scotland and Greece, agreed a contract with Darlington and was training with the club when told the move had apparently been blocked.

According to Knight, Rushden, without his consent, exercised a clause to extend his deal for one more year meaning he still cannot sign for an English club unless he pays Rushden 30,000 to buy himself out of the contract.

Interesting to see a club fighting back against player power.

Bit bizarre :s how can they extend the contract of a player and not be paying him? Surely they've opened themselves up to having to pay Knight 30 grand this season for doing nothing which as funny as it is seems a bit dumb in a business sense.

What the fuck did he do at Rushden to piss them off so much? Must have been pretty bad, shagging the owners wife for example, for them to still be bitter and pull a stunt like that. There's some pure hatred at work there.

I've gone for the more subtle approach to see if I can get a rise out of him. Seems like he enjoys replying to tweets so I'm hopeful of a reply. Smiley
