News of their reported interest was relayed to fans by the Leeds Insider Facebook page (via MOT Leeds News) for them to react to, and it’s fair to say that that they weren’t exactly delighted to hear the news, although some of them found it very hard to believe that they would be willing to let him go for that sort of fee:
