Leeds fans have reacted on Twitter after coach Sean Rush indicated that young midfielder Alex Purver had been released by the club.

Purver, 21, has remained on loan with Leeds’ feeder club Guiseley this season who currently ply their trade in the Vanarama National League.

However, with his contract set to expire in less than two months, it appears that the midfielder has been released by Garry Monk’s side after failing to make a single competitive appearance.

Rush, who is head of physical performance at Elland Road, wished Purver “all the best” on his Twitter account and claimed “they don’t come much better” than the academy product.

Purver has made 26 appearances with fifth tier outfit Guiseley and a permanent move to the Yorkshire side could now be on the cards, if he has indeed been released by Leeds.

Fans reacted on Twitter to Rush’s tweet, with some questioning the decision to let him go while some stated that you must trust the likes of co-owner Andrea Radrizzani.

Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Purver has failed to break into Monk’s side this season with the likes of Ronaldo Vieira, Liam Bridcutt, Eunan O’Kane and Kalvin Phillips all ahead of him in the pecking order.
