Leeds fans have been reacting to claims regarding a potential new signing that the club could make this summer.

“Sounds promising”

“If true then this is an absolute steal”
“Looks a steal. If he’s as good as our last signing from Huesca, but with a better attitude, then we’re in for a cracking player”
“At last, some good news…”
“If this signing comes off and we add another 3 or 4 similar calibre then it’s going to be an exciting season for us.”

Should Leeds spend heavily in the summer?

It certainly seems as if Leeds have got a good player on their hands, judging by these reactions. Only time will tell if they end up being right, though – if indeed the deal does get made.
