Different agents told me they had held talks with Head in his capacity as the new head of recruitment for Leeds United.
Head - who had a similar role with Norwich City and who is highly regarded in the game following spells with Fulham and even England - was brought to the club by new executive director Adam Pearson.
He signed a contract on Friday and Pearson was delighted to have got him on board, another piece in the jigsaw he is assembling at Elland Road.
All that was now required was the signature of Massimo Cellino. And perhaps you can guess where this is going.
On Tuesday, Cellino asked where Head was, only to be informed he had gone on holiday, a holiday which had been booked several months earlier, before Leeds United were ever on the scene.
The Italian was furious, saying he should be working for Leeds United, not on holiday. And he tore the contract up.
So that was that. Head basically lasted five days in the job, if you can call it that.
