Many Leeds United fans have been left angered after seeing their club is close to sealing a move for Espanyol man Mateo Joseph Fernandez.
According to Sky Sports News journalist Tim Thornton, the young striker is currently undergoing a medical in West Yorkshire – and with the January transfer market now open, of course, it looks as if the deal could be completed fairly quickly.
Thornton tweeted the information to his many online followers, and it didn’t take long before supporters on social media were reacting to the news.
Will Kalvin Phillips be a Leeds player next season?
Here’s what these Leeds fans had to say…
Considering Fernandez has yet to play a game for the senior Espanyol team, it looks as if this move has been made with an eye towards the future as opposed to him making an immediate impact in the coming months. It should also be added that the attacker only turned 18 years old last October.
With academy graduate Joe Gelhardt recently stepping up into the Leeds first team, perhaps this new young striker will be expected to take his place in the club’s U23 side.
