Leeds fans react on Twitter to Ross Barkley interest reports
A number of Leeds United fans have taken to Twitter to comment on reports from 90min claiming that the Whites are one of the teams keen on signing Ross Barkley from Chelsea in January.
Marcelo Bielsa clearly does not like doing business in the winter window. The club have rarely made additions to the first-team midway through the season.
And interestingly, none of those brought in in January windows under Bielsa remain at Elland Road. Kiko Casilla and Ian Poveda are out on loan. The deal for Jean-Kevin Augustin meanwhile, proved to be a nightmare for all parties.
According to 90min, the Whites are battling Newcastle and Burnley for Barkley. It is claimed that Chelsea are ready to let the 27-year-old go.
Barkley, of course, spent a brief period on loan at Elland Road earlier in his career. But a lot has changed since then.
He has been a peripheral figure for a few years at Chelsea. And his loan spell at Aston Villa last season fizzled out quite dramatically after a brilliant start.
Nevertheless, the reaction amongst Leeds fans is actually quite mixed. Some are adamant that they should go nowhere near a move.
‘No thanks’: Leeds fans react to Ross Barkley links
Others however, seem more excited about the links. On his day, he is a fantastic footballer who can change games. And clearly, some think that he could make a real impact.
With that in mind, here is how some of the Leeds fans have reacted to the reports…

Decent but how long before fit enough. Don’t want to be paying James money for him either

NO NO NO…lazy/poor…weve seen him before at ER and he was no good then. All clubs get rid of him for good reason

I’d take him ASAP but he’ll probably take the geordie money
