'We'll regret this' - Leeds fans react as second player exits in quick succession

By Abigail Withey 

Leeds fans have taken to social media to express their mixed feelings about Liam Bridcutt’s exit from Elland Road.

The White’s announced the 28-year-old’s departure on Tuesday morning on their official Twitter account, less than just 24 hours after confirming Chris Wood’s transfer to Premier League side Burnley.

Bridcutt penned his deal with Nottingham Forest just days before his former club are set to travel to the City Ground for their Championship clash with the Reds.

Fans have expressed their opposing opinions on Twitter with many supporters saying that the transfer was great business for the club while others said the Whites would regret losing their former skipper.

Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Bridcutt moved to Elland Road on a permanent basis from Sunderland last summer following a short loan spell with the Whites.

While the midfielder wore the captain’s armband for a majority of his debut season with United, he was often left out of the squad by former boss Garry Monk towards the end of the season.

Although new boss Thomas Christiansen has made a number of recruitments over his first transfer window at the club, Bridcutt joins a host of other players to exit such as Wood, Jordan Botaka, Guiseppe Bellusci, Ross Turnbull and Charlie Taylor.

In the latest Leeds news, fans have completely destroyed a fellow Championship striker on Twitter after the Whites were linked with a reported bid.
