PSV feel that the decision taken by the FIFA to give Leandro permission to play for FC Porto is not correct. The club are going to lodge an appeal at The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) in Lausanne in Switzerland.The FIFA informed PSV last Friday that the request of the Portuguese Football Association to temporarily release Leandro has been granted."But that’s not the end of the affair as far as we are concerned", argues legal adviser Peter Fossen. "PSV maintain that Leandro has closed a deal with PSV which ties him at the club until the summer of 2006. That’s why the club will lodge an appeal", said Fossen.Leandro has been challenging the legitimacy of his contract with PSV since the winter break. His contact with PSV will not expire until one and a half years.
