Many Leeds United supporters have flocked to social media in order to respond to a Twitter post from The Athletic’s Phil Hay in which he revealed that RB Leipzig have tabled a formal compensation claim against Leeds United regarding Jean-Kevin Augustin.

The striker joined the Whites in January of this year on an initial loan deal with an agreement in place for the Yorkshire-based club to sign him in the summer for €21m (£18m) if they were promoted to the Premier League (as per The Athletic).

Starting with an easy one what shirt number does Bamford wear for Leeds United?

Having played just 48 minutes of Championship football during his time in England, Bielsa decided that the player was not part of his plans moving forward and due to the viral outbreak putting a halt to the sport, Augustin’s contract expired before Leeds were able to complete the season, therefore, in the club’s eyes, the promotion clause was never triggered in time (via The Athletic).

How have these Leeds United fans reacted to the news regarding RB Leipzig’s compensation claim?

Do you expect Leeds to have to pay compensation to RB Leipzig?

Yes

Yes

No

No

It’s clear from the above responses that most of these Leeds United supporters don’t think their club should be forced to pay compensation to RB Leipzig over Jean-Kevin Augustin. The player joined Nantes in Ligue 1 on a free transfer in October but has been limited to just three appearances for the French outfit to date (as per Transfermarkt).
