Leeds fans react on Twitter after Bamba signs for Warnock
By Dominic Toner
Cardiff have announced the signing of defender Sol Bamba – and Leeds fans have reacted with mixed thoughts on Twitter to the news.
Bamba, 31, became a free agent after terminating his contract with the Yorkshire giants the day after the transfer window.
The Ivory Coast international has now linked up with another former Leeds man, Cardiff manager Neil Warnock, who was in charge at Elland Road during the 2012-13 season.
Cardiff announced on their website that Bamba has agreed a deal until the summer of 2018, subject to international clearance.
Some Leeds supporters have been quick to criticise Bamba and believe he was not good enough, whilst others have wished him luck at his new side.

Warnock was recently appointed the Cardiff manager and is hoping Bamba can help steer his side away from the relegation places.
Leeds have suitably replaced Bamba and on-loan star Pontus Jansson has become a fan favourite already.
Jansson and Kyle Bartley have struck up a formidable partnership in defence and have helped the Whites win five of their last six games in all competitions.
Bamba made 56 appearances for Leeds during his time with the club, which included a loan deal that earned him a permanent move, and scored five goals in that time to highlight his aerial threat.
