Eddie Nketiah joined the Whites on-loan at the start of the season but he returned to his parent club Arsenal in January having started just 8% of Leeds United’s Championship fixtures. Since his return to North London, the 20-year-old has made six appearances for the Gunners, scoring three goals.
Do you regret Eddie Nketiah's departure?
After the England Under-21 international successfully led the line and scored for Mikel Arteta’s side at Portsmouth on Monday night, these Leeds fans have responded to the striker’s Twitter post.
Obviously wish you were still here but pleased its working out for you. Imagine what a full season under Bielsa could have done for you ?

Wish you’d had more games at Leeds but so glad that you are scoring. It’s that Bielsa magic, wish he could wave his wand over PB!

What do we think?
Despite Nketiah’s loan spell at Leeds coming to a premature end, it’s clear from the responses above that these fans have no ill-feeling towards the young man and in some cases, they wish he was given more of an opportunity to establish himself ahead of Patrick Bamford.
