Leeds United fans on Twitter have been responding to the latest transfer claim to emerge concerning the Yorkshire club. 

This comes after football journalist Adam Crafton shared a post on his official Twitter page revealing that Barcelona left-back Junior Firpo is now in Leeds finalising a transfer to Elland Road.

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

Crafton also said that the reported deal will be worth €15 million (£12.8 million).

This post then gathered a number of replies from a range of Whites supporters, who were not shy in sharing their thoughts on this latest transfer claim.

So, what did these Leeds fans have to say in response to Crafton’s post about Firpo?

“Excellent. With Bielsa we need Orta to bring players in before pre-season starts so players are ready to go start of the season”


“What a signing this would be… come on Victor lets goooooooo!!!!!!”


Let’s hope this is a done deal #MOT


“Get in.”


Bargain Really excited to see what he can do with a pre-season under Bielsa behind him #LUFC




“Oooooh baby”


“Crafton you little dancer”


“Fantastic news. Anything on a CM Adam?”


The 24-year-old, who is currently valued at £7.2 million according to Transfermarkt, has made 41 appearances for Barcelona, in which he has managed to score two goals and provide three assists along the way.

Looking at the replies to this post from Crafton, it appears that these Leeds fans are very excited by the prospect of Firpo making a move to Elland Road this summer.

Would you be happy to see Firpo join Leeds?





In our view, given how current Leeds left-back Ezgjan Alioski saw his contract at the club expire at the end of June and the fact that there hasn’t been any inclination that he will be signing a new deal, the potential arrival of Firpo could spell the end of Alioski’s time at the club, but only time will tell.
