Leeds fans react to Harrison Reed transfer reports
A number of Leeds United fans have taken to Twitter to comment on reports from the Daily Mail suggesting that the Whites want Harrison Reed in the transfer window.
It looks to be imperative that Leeds strengthen their midfield options this summer. Stuart Dallas was incredible this past season, but his versatility is hugely important to Marcelo Bielsa’s side.
They also struggled for much of the season whenever Kalvin Phillips was unavailable. Admittedly, Robin Koch produced a couple of superb displays later on, but further reinforcements would be welcome.
And according to the report, Reed is on their radar. It is claimed that the Fulham midfielder is wanted by a host of Premier League.
The 26-year-old was impressive despite Scott Parker’s side failing to beat the drop in the top flight.
Sky Sports reported that he cost £6 million when he joined permanently from Southampton last summer.
‘Makes sense’: Leeds fans react to Harrison Reed transfer links
Admittedly, some supporters seem underwhelmed with the links. Obviously, it is putting some off that he has been relegated.
But there are plenty of fans who believe that he would be an excellent signing.
He is a player capable of providing cover for Phillips in holding midfield. But he can also push further forward. He is good on the ball and loves to get stuck in.
With that in mind, here is how some of the fans have reacted to the links…
Thought he was class against us https://t.co/8mEiaJFK9H

Yes please. Very mobile and loves a tackle. https://t.co/Aymh7qel7d

Quality player especially defensively but I’m not sure he could do what Phillips/Koch/Struijk can do in that role in terms of the transition/passing element of it

Koch is just as good if not better

Right profile, would take, but would hope we’d try for more ambitious targets first, then settling on him if it comes to it.

I think he’d be very good to take the Forshaw role. Can start as an 8 or as a DM. Makes sense.

Works for me. Good player with room for improvement, and PL experience. What’s not to like

Yes think he’s a good player, under bielsa even better
