Leigh transferred from Bury in 2018 and then signed for three years. After being relegated from the Eredivisie with NAC, he was hired out to Aberdeen in Scotland. Both NAC and Leigh saw little in an extended collaboration: Rotherham United now offers a solution. According to BN DeStem The Millers ‘amount in accordance with the limited transfer fee’ in Leigh’s contract: if the medical examination does not cause any problems, the transfer can be made public.
The departure of the big earner will probably be a relief for NAC, which will soon have more room in the salary budget. Leigh stood out in sixteen Eredivisie matches mainly because of his work ethic and angular playing style. The NAC fans regularly chanted ‘Leigh, Leigh, Leigh’ during matches and even facial masks with his image were made.
