A number of Leeds United fans have taken to Twitter to comment on reports from De Telegraaf this week concerning interest in Pascal Struijk.
Struijk has been a revelation in the Premier League. It is remarkable to think that his first league start for the club in his natural position of centre-back only came on the opening day of this season as Leeds faced Liverpool.
He has now made 16 appearances in the top flight. And he has produced some superb performances to help Leeds through a tough period when they have been without Diego Llorente and Robin Koch due to injury.
But it appears that his form is not going unnoticed. According to De Telegraaf, enquires have been made with clubs such as Leicester and Napoli keen.
It is not clear whether any clubs are planning to make a bid this summer, or whether Struijk could have any interest in moving on.
But what is clear is that many Leeds fans do not want to see Struijk leave Elland Road. He has been superb since getting a prolonged run in the first-team at the very end of last season.
Plenty of supporters clearly feel that the defender has huge potential. And thus, they hope that he stays. It would also appear that they are not expecting the club to show any interest in letting him leave either.
With that in mind, here is how some of the fans have reacted to the reports…
No need to sell and will add to the quality we already have, new contract in the summer I’d say

Massive confidence boost for the lad. He will go to the top will Struijk. Best young CB in the PL atm.

He’s going to be a class centre half, I’m not surprised.

That’s good that people have noticed him, but he isn’t going anywhere

My first thought is “I’ll have some of whatever they are drinking”! 👀
