These Leeds United fans have raved over the latest Phil Hay January transfer update, as Jean-Kevin Augustin joins Elland Road on loan.
Leeds have announced that Augustin has joined the Peacocks on an initial loan deal, with Marcelo Bielsa’s side also having the option to sign the Frenchman on a permanent basis at the end of the loan spell (Leeds United).
Hay was quick to update these Whites fans on Twitter, with many of them over the moon with the swiftness of the latest deal.
Here are some of the comments from the Peacocks fans on Twitter:

Will Augustin push Bamford out of the starting lineup?
Augustin will now rival Patrick Bamford for a regular spot in the first-team, with the Englishman scoring 10 goals in 27 Championship appearances so far this season (WhoScored).
Thats fantastic news! lets hope the negative fans shut up now!

What Do We Think?
Only time will tell if Augustin will take over from Bamford, but the Englishman must be a little bit concerned with the signing, as he’ll now be in direct competition with the new Elland Road man.
Although, it’s safe to say that it’s a much-needed signing given their lack of options at the pinnacle of the attack and one that could help get them over the line this season.
