Leeds United fans on Twitter have been responding to the latest piece of transfer news concerning the Yorkshire club and Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi. 

This comes after @leeds_utd_news shared a post relaying news originally published in an article from The Telegraph.

Leeds' all-time top Premier goalscorer is Mark Viduka but how many did he score?

The article claims that Leeds are interested in signing Batshuayi during the upcoming summer transfer window.

This post then gathered a lot of replies from , who were not shy in airing their thoughts on this latest claim.

So, what did these Leeds fans have to say in response to this latest transfer rumour linking the club with a summer move for Michy Batshuayi?

“Thanks, but no thanks.”

@thombo1987

“No from me. Poor player.”

@MasonFeltham

“Nah, you’re ok thanks.”

@fishbone56

“No thanks”

@ronaallleeds

“No, no we aren’t. Stop it”

@Lufc1203

“We definitely aren’t” 

@PJ_Jenno

“I certainly hope this isn’t true he hasn’t been able to make himself a 1st team starter at any of the teams he’s been on to why would we want him at Leeds save the ££ and spend it elsewhere #MOT”

Looking at the replies to this post, it’s clear to see that these Leeds fans are not interested in potentially seeing their club make a move to sign Batshuayi this summer.

Would you like to see Leeds make a move for Batshuayi this summer?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Given how the 27-year-old, who is currently valued at £9 million, only managed to score two goals in 20 appearances during his loan spell at Crystal Palace this season, it’s understandable why these Leeds fans wouldn’t want to see him at Elland Road next season.

In our view, with current Leeds striker Patrick Bamford managing to score 17 Premier League goals this season and Rodrigo still a relatively recent attacking arrival, perhaps the club don’t necessarily need to sign another striker this summer.
