A lot of Leeds United fans appear to be buzzing on Twitter at the news their club have agreed a fee for Lewis Bate.
It has been reported by Nizaar Kinsella that Leeds have agreed a fee for Bate and a contract will be signed and also a medical completed later on Wednesday.
Will Leeds finish in the top six next season?
Chelsea have inserted a sell-on clause into the deal, although there is no mention of a buy-back clause for the Blues.
Many Leeds fans have reacted positively on Twitter to the latest news regarding Bate.
What have these Leeds fans had to say on Twitter?
“1.5m for a player who’s better than Gilmour, Victor Orta has done it again”
“Chelsea fans not best pleased”
“Absolute bargain for this lad, you can tell the Chelsea fans are angry at him going. Brilliant addition to the U23s and future first-team star. In a year or two would expect this guy to be a mainstay in midfield with KP. #LUFC”
“Chelsea fans mad at the 1.5m fee, seems like a bargain”
“Wow, what a signing”
“Victor Orta masterclass”
“Could be a ridiculous steal”
“An absolute steal when Bielsa turns him into prime Iniesta”
Bate is only 18 years old so may not be ready for the first team yet, but a season working under Marcelo Bielsa could see him come on leaps and bounds, much like what has happened to Kalvin Phillips, who is now an England regular having started every game at Euro 2020 this summer.
The teenager will be hoping a move to Leeds can bring about some first-team experience, with his path into the first team being blocked at Chelsea by the likes of Mateo Kovacic, Jorginho and N’Golo Kante.
