Leeds United signed Jean-Kevin Augustin during January 2020 and it was met with a huge wave of optimism by Whites supporters.
The RB Leipzig man was supposedly the man to fire Marcelo Bielsa to the promised land and his high-profile arrival at Elland Road.
Fast forward 10 months and it has to be said that Augustin will go down as one of the most bizarre signings in the history of the famous club.
Leeds included an option to sign Augustin for £18 million at the end of the campaign but clearly, they were never going to do that given his lack of an impact.
The 23-year-old played just 48 minutes for the Whites and returned to the German club at the end of his loan spell.
Augustin has now hooked himself up with a new club, however, signing for Nantes on a two-year contract.
Following his announcement at the Ligue 1 outfit, he has taken to Twitter to send a message to the supporters of Leeds.

His message of admiration wasn’t lost on supporters either as they took to Twitter to respond to the heartfelt message.
Here is a selection of Tweets from Leeds fans in response to Augustin’s message of support.
