Leeds fans react to latest report on Spanish midfielder Ander Iturraspe

Leeds United are reportedly tracking free agent midfielder Ander Iturraspe this summer and it is believed the Spaniard is open to joining the Whites – and Leeds fans have reacted on Twitter.

Spanish outlet El Desmarque have claimed that 30-year-old Iturraspe is being targeted not only by Leeds, but by clubs also in Asia and in Greece. But Leeds could hold a trump card in their pursuit of Iturraspe.

That is because manager Marcelo Bielsa coached Iturraspe at Bilbao, helping him become established as one of the best ball-playing midfielders in La Liga and even winning two caps for Spain.

Iturraspe managed just five appearances for Bilbao last season, though, after falling down the pecking order. His contract expired and Bilbao confirmed that they had released the midfielder, leaving him to look for a new home.

Leeds were previously linked with Iturraspe, but reports suggested that he would not move to Elland Road if the club failed to gain promotion to the Premier League. But it appears that he may have made a u-turn.

Leeds fans took to Twitter to react to the reported news that Iturraspe could be on his way to Yorkshire in the immediate future, with many confident he could be a good signing for the promotion challengers.
