The former West Bromwich Albion captain arrived at Elland Road after weeks of transfer negotiations
for a fee of £500,000 that could rise to £1m based on appearances and promotion bonuses.
The midfielder arrived in Leeds with over 450 games under his belt and represented the type
of experience Kevin Blackwell was desperately trying to add to his squad.
He also brings real leadership qualities and during his time at the Hawthorns and previous
clubs Preston and Darlington, an uncompromising, tough tackler.
Gregan began life as a defender with Darlington and helped guide them to the old
Fourth Division championship before David Moyes signed him for Second Division Preston North End in a £350,000 move in November
It was whilst at Preston that he was turned into a midfielder, and made captain. He
was voted Preston North End Player of the Year in 1999/00 - the same year he helped the Lilleywhites win the Second
He joined West Brom in August 2002 for £1.5m and quickly became a crowd favourite
there too, taking on the captaincy and guiding them back to the Premiership at the first time of asking last season.
But he fell out of favour with Baggies boss Gary Megson and that allowed Kevin Blackwell to
make his move.
One of Sean's claims to fame is that he once scored from the half-way line, playing against
Norwich in March 2001.
