These Leeds United fans discuss Jean-Kevin Augustin joining the Peacocks despite Manchester United interest.

According to The Athletic, Leeds United secured Jean-Kevin Augustin on loan despite ‘last-minute pleas’ coming from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Manchester United during the recruitment process. This was later shared on Twitter via Phil Hay.

Augustin is yet to be capped by the French senior national side, despite playing for their U21s. However, if Marcelo Bielsa’s side can gain promotion to the Premier League this season and the Frenchman decides to stay, that could quickly change for the 22-year-old.

Here are some of the comments from the Leeds fans on Twitter:

Augustin played 67 matches for RB Leipzig, scoring 20 goals and getting an impressive eight assists from the forward positions (Transfermarkt).

Will Augustin stay with Leeds United?

Yes

Yes

No

No

What Do We Think?

It’ll be interesting to see how well Augustin can settle in at Leeds, with the Championship arguably being the lowest level of club football he’s played, which would leave you expecting the 22-year-old to run riot in England’s second division.
