Leeds fans react as Michael Olise nears Crystal Palace move
A number of Leeds United fans have taken to Twitter to comment on reports claiming that Michael Olise is set to complete a move to Crystal Palace.
Palace landed one of the most exciting talents in the EFL last year when they brought Ebere Eze to Selhurst Park.
And it appears that they are about to repeat the trick one year later.
The 19-year-old was outrageously good in the Championship last season. He scored seven times and provided 12 assists for Reading.
He is a player who has been on Leeds’s radar. Reports last year claimed that they were battling the likes of Arsenal and Wolves for his signature.
And that may explain why plenty of supporters are not best pleased. Many feel that he would have been a fantastic signing for the Whites.
He predominantly played in the number 10 role last season. But he also featured on both wings, up front and in central midfield.
‘We’ve missed a trick’: Leeds fans disappointed about Olise move
It is therefore, extremely difficult to understand why Leeds seemingly did not make a move. Certainly, many fans feel that Palace have secured a real bargain.
With that in mind, here is what some of the Leeds supporters make of the reports Olise is Palace-bound…
If Olise had a release clause of £8m we’ve missed a trick there. The lad is quality #lufc

Would of thought for £8m, a bigger club would of come in for Olise. Would of been ideal for us. But sure we have a couple of quality targets in mind. Good signing for palace, who I think would of struggled this season. #lufc

Olise to Palace? I’m not sure I like that move for him given that I think they’re going to struggle next season. I hoped he might move to a better team and be able to be brought through slowly adapting to playing in a more dominant style. I hope I’m wrong because I love him.
