Leeds United fans on Twitter have been responding to the latest piece of transfer news surrounding the Yorkshire club. 

This comes after Leeds journalist James Marshment shared a post on his Twitter page relaying news originally published in an article from Italian media outlet Calciomercato (via TEAMtalk).

Nice easy one to start off with, what number does Phillips wear for Leeds United?

The article claims that Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa is reportedly keen on making a deal for Torino defender Nicolas N’Koulou this summer.

Marshment also added in his tweet that the 30-year-old will be a free agent and has worked with Bielsa previously at Marseille.

This post then gathered a lot of replies from Whites fans who were quick to share their thoughts on this latest news.

So, what did these Leeds fans have to say in response to this summer transfer link with N’Koulou?

“Won’t happen – next” 

@AramLeeds

Surely his agent trying to get him a move #lufc

@LewyPearce

“Its going to be a painful summer already with all the rumours flying around already”

@BadgeSmiley

“No chance… Doesn’t remotely fit the Bielsa M.O” 

@meggers10000

Nonsense rumours

@lufc_fc

“Hmmm doesn’t ring true this”

@adiDallas15

“Fake news again”

@roberts_howell

Looking at the replies to this post, it appears that these Leeds fans aren’t convinced by this latest transfer report linking their club with a summer move for N’Koulou.

Do you think Leeds will sign any players in the summer?

Yes

Yes

No

No

With the Elland Road outfit currently having a significant number of defenders in their squad, perhaps adding another one in summer would be unnecessary, unless they move any on out of the club first.

However, with Leeds having conceded 43 goals in the Premier League so far this season, perhaps adding some quality defenders to their squad in the summer could benefit them for next season.
