Shaun Derry's agent has denied that the midfielder is the Leeds United mole.
Shaun Derry's agent has denied that the midfielder is the Leeds United mole, whilst calling on Dennis Wise to publicly confirm the identity of the accused player.
Following Saturday's 2-1 win over Crystal Palace, Wise insisted that an unnamed player will never appear for the Yorkshire side again after claiming details of his team were leaked to the opposition.
Fingers have been pointing at Derry by virtue of the fact that he used to play for The Eagles and missed the game at the weekend due to injury.
However the player's agent Phil Smith has vehemently denied that his client is the man responsible for Wise's unprecedented actions.
Furthermore, after Derry became the first player to clear his name, Smith has called on the Leeds boss to end speculation by revealing the identity of the mystery man.
"Shaun went to Palace's hotel the night before the game to see old friends and attended the game," Smith told The Sun.
"But people have wrongly assumed he is to blame because he used to play for Crystal Palace.
"We have had no contact from Dennis Wise and Leeds whatsoever.
"It would be best for Leeds to make it clear who the player is, then these rumours can stop."
