Leeds United have completed the signing of Joe Gelhardt from Wigan this evening and fans of the Whites have been reacting to the news in their droves on Twitter.
Gelhardt completes his move to Elland Road after weeks of rumours, with the club confirming a four-year deal has been penned by the youngster to play in West Yorkshire.
The forward has burst onto the scene with Wigan and was a man in-demand this summer. But it is Leeds who have won the race, announcing the capture of the teenager very early on in the window.
It is another addition to an already exciting Leeds squad that is full of young talent.
Leeds fans, then, were obviously delighted with the business and took to Twitter to have their say on what should be a brilliant deal for the club in the long-term.
With that, here’s a look at how some Leeds fans reacted to the signing of Joe Gelhardt tonight.
