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

This comes after Leeds journalist James Marshment shared a post on his Twitter page relaying a claim from the Yorkshire Evening Post that the club’s director Victor Orta has a “mystery midfielder in his sights” for the club to sign this summer as their “next priority” (as per TeamTalk).

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

This post then gathered a lot of replies from a number of Whites supporters 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 claim about the club?

“Sounds like we’re going for a big coup, almost Rodrigo vibes about this next signing…”


“Oooooo this is exciting!”


“You tease.”


“No point even trying to guess, trust the process”


“Knowing Victor it’ll be someone we’ve not heard of or been mentioned with”


“What we need Victor works tirelessly for the club and makes some excellent signings that out way his mistakes and he’s made a few bad ones”


Looking at the replies to this post from Marshment, it seems that these Leeds fans are quite interested in this latest transfer claim and who the mystery midfielder that Orta is reportedly looking to sign is.

Do you think Leeds need to sign another midfielder this summer?





In our view, with Leeds only managing to win two out of the nine Premier League games that Kalvin Phillips didn’t play in last season – losing the other seven – perhaps this mystery midfielder should be a defensive-minded one that would be able to step in for Phillips if he misses any games moving forward.
