'Don't make me laugh', '£50m isn't enough' - Leeds United fans react to source's Archie Gray update

Leeds United fans do not want to see Archie Gray leave the club amid speculation of an Elland Road exit.

The 17-year-old has been scouted numerous times by Premier League giants Liverpool and Everton, and sources have told Football Insider that the Whites value Gray at upwards of £40million.

Gray only made his senior debut this season but has impressed in the Championship under Daniel Farke, playing in all but one game for Leeds in all competitions this season.

His versatility has seen him play numerous positions this season including defensive midfield and right-back.

Gray, whose father and grandfather were also Whites, joined Leeds at the under-nines level and has been a regular for England’s youth sides since 2021.

Leeds fans are not happy to see reports of a potential move for the highly-rated youngster and have taken to social media to share their thoughts.

This fan is hopeful that the club won’t even entertain offers for Gray “at any price”.

This fan is unconvinced that he will make a move in the near future.

This supporter likened a move to Kalvin Phillips’ departure from Elland Road, but claimed he would stay if Leeds were to secure promotion.

This fan claims that regular first-team football, even in the Championship, would be much better for Gray’s development than having a periphery role at Liverpool.

This supporter hopes Gray will learn from the past mistakes of other players who took similar moves and claimed a transfer to Liverpool now would be a “massive waste ” of his talent.

One fan would want Liverpool to give Leeds two of their star players on top of the reported £50million if they want to prize Gray away.

This fan claimed that Leeds’ valuation of only half of his actual worth.

One fan pointed to Gray’s family ties to Leeds as a reason why he’d stay and suggested that the club wait until his valuation skyrockets before sanctioning a move.
