Fans of Leeds United have been reacting to a post on Facebook, which relayed a report regarding Chelsea centre-back, Fikayo Tomori.

The article by Leeds Live put forward the argument that, although they understand that Marcelo Bielsa’s side are not currently interested in the £15.3 million-rated defender, Tomori would be the perfect signing for the Whites in January.

With Chelsea manager, Frank Lampard, confirming that the England international would be available on a loan deal this month, Leeds Live state their belief that that the 23-year-old would be a great fit for the Elland Road side, as he ‘possesses a great deal of qualities Bielsa values in his defenders’, such as his ‘recovery pace and agility’ as well as his ‘short-range pass completion rates’.

And, after the publication shared their report on Facebook, fans of Leeds flocked to have their say on the matter, with some appearing to agree with Leeds Live that Tomori would be a good fit for their side, while others seemed to feel differently.
