Leeds United fans have been reacting on Twitter after it was confirmed that there is a ‘performance partnership’ deal in place between the Yorkshire giants and Northern Irish top-flight club Glenvaon.
The NIFL Premiership high-flyers announced on their official Twitter account on Thursday that they have struck up a deal with the Whites, however they are yet to fully disclose the nature of the agreement and what it entails.

There is still yet to be an update on the agreement between the two clubs and the details remain hazy, but Leeds fans have already started to react on social media to the latest news.
Many believe that Glenavon, who are fourth in the NIFL Premiership, should take some of the current poor performing players from Elland Road.
Here is a selection of their tweets:

Glenavon has a good Academy does it not? And they regularly qualify for the Europa League?

I've quickly researched and it appears Glenavon only lost once in the first three months but are currently on a seven game winless streak where they've only picked up three points.

Leeds have had links with Glenavon in the past having signed Robbie McDaid from the Northern Irish club in 2014 while teenage goalkeeper Conner Byrne was reported to have had a trial with the Yorkshire giants last year.
There was also a friendly held between the two sides in July 2014 after McDaid completed his switch to Elland Road, which the English Championship club won 5-0 against a side containing David Healy.
