Middlesbrough fans react as Leeds eye Marcus Tavernier
A number of Middlesbrough fans have taken to Twitter to react to reports from TEAMtalk claiming that Leeds United are interested in signing Marcus Tavernier.
Tavernier has been a mainstay of the Boro side this term. And he will be setting his sights on keeping his place under new boss Chris Wilder.
It seems that he will have something else to fight for with the January transfer window looming.
TEAMtalk reports that Leeds have joined a host of their Premier League rivals in the running to sign the 22-year-old. Southampton, Brighton and Burnley are also admirers of the versatile midfielder.
Tavernier has just over 18 months left on his contract at the Riverside Stadium. So it would appear that a resolution on his future may come sooner rather than later.
And actually, it would appear that a number of Boro fans would not mind if he ended up moving to Leeds.
Admittedly, some have insisted that he should not be sold. He is still a youngster with a lot of room to improve. He is also capable of playing in a variety of positions.
Meanwhile, it has been suggested that Marcelo Bielsa would help him take his game to the next level.

However, others have claimed that letting him go may make sense. They seemingly have their doubts about whether he will realise his potential after a poor start to the campaign.
With that in mind, here is what some of the Middlesbrough fans make of the reports that Leeds want Tavernier…
I’d keep him personally, unless big money is offered. Very versatile player, that can play out wide or in the centre. He’s only 22. Suggesting there is plenty of time for him to grow and improve as a player. He also has a decent amount of experience for a 22 year old too… https://t.co/cIln94dgco

At the moment, yes, sell him as he’s having a shocking season so far. However, let’s see what Wilder can do with him. https://t.co/8z0Zg9d22u
