May Leeds fans want Stockdale in January

Eagle-eyed Leeds fans have noticed that Birmingham David Stockdale has returned to his parent club after an emergency loan to Wanderers, and many of them have urged the 6ft 3in 33-year-old to head to Elland Road in January.

Leeds were exploring the possibility of an emergency loan themselves after loanee Jamal Blackman broke his leg and Bailey Peacock-Farrell was injured.

In the end, Peacock-Farrell was only out for one match and that means Leeds can no longer get anyone in before January unless he’s injured again.

Manager Marcelo Bielsa had ruled it out anyway, preferring to promote from within.

That could change in the January transfer window. Leeds surely need an experienced to provide competition for Peacock-Farrell in the second-half of the season and Leeds-born Stockdale could be ideal.

He’s been frozen out at Birmingham and is highly unlikely to play there this season and he was obviously frustrated at being called back from early.

At 33-years-old he needs to be playing and Leeds could afford his wages.

There are plenty of Leeds fans who would love to see it happen.

Here are the best reactions to his tweet:
