Leeds United are reportedly stepping up talks with 20-year-old left-back Tom Pearce, with two Premier League clubs interested – and fans have taken to Twitter to react to the news.

The Yorkshire Evening Post has claimed that Leeds will hold fresh talks with Pearce this week after unleashing him in the first-team without a new contract in place.

His displays in the last five games of the season have alerted both Everton and Bournemouth to his availability and he would be free to walk for a compensation fee as soon as his contract expires at the end of June.

That’s a sticky situation that Leeds could have avoided, as most fans have pointed out on Twitter.

Although one fan rather harshly said that his head has been turned and that Pearce obviously thinks more of himself than he should, and said Leeds should let the player rot.

Here are the best reactions to the report that Leeds and Pearce will hold fresh talks this week:
