David Singeries career has hit a new low, after a row over Instagram accounts sparked by his decision to be photographed with an injured horse.
It is the latest incident to derail a career that began in the 1950s when he was the first black footballer to play for Manchester United and England.
Singery, whose career included two FA Cups and three league titles, has had to sell his current home in Brighton to pay for the repairs to the stadium.
His former club Reading FC announced on Monday that he would be leaving on a four-year deal, while Leeds United announced on Tuesday that he had signed a two-year contract.
Singery is one of the most famous players in the world but has been criticised by some players for the way he has treated the sport.
In July, he was banned from playing for 10 months after admitting to using performance-enhancing drugs, and is facing an investigation by the Professional Footballers’ Association (PFA) into his use of banned substances.
He will be replaced on the England squad by fellow former England player Gareth Southgate, who will be given a five-match ban for the same incident.
