GALWAY United CEO Nick Leeson yesterday vowed that his club will "probably issue legal proceedings" against Dundalk after Ian Foster was unveiled as the manager of the Louth outfit last night.
The former Kidderminster Harriers player signed a two-year deal with the Lilywhites after just a year as manager of Galway, but his move has come with some controversy.
Foster had been contracted to the Tribesmen for another season but is believed to have departed on the basis that his contract at Terryland Park had been breached when there were payment problems during his year.
"Ian asked permission to speak to Dundalk which was refused," said Leeson yesterday. "They have taken this course of action without any blessing from Galway United so we will probably issue legal proceedings against Dundalk."
