Leeds fans react on Twitter after striker joins rival weeks after leaving club

By Harvey Byrne

Lewis Walters has joined Nottingham Forest after being released from Leeds in the summer – and fans have taken to Twitter to wish him all the best.

The 21-year-old revealed the deal on his personal Instagram account on Friday afternoon.

He signed his first professional deal at Elland Road in 2013, but clearly hadn’t done enough to convince new manager Garry Monk that he was worth keeping at the club.

Fans took to social media to wish the youngster all the best, while some were worried that he may come back to haunt them.

Here are a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Walters will now be expected to join up with the Nottingham Forest Under-23’s side, but he will certainly have one eye on the senior team.

He has joined a side which currently has Nicklas Bendtner, Apostolos Vellios, Britt Assombalonga, Matty Fryatt and Nicolao Dumitru all vying for a position upfront, which may restrict his chances in the senior side.

However, he has moved from one famous club to another, with both clubs having a good history of bringing through young players.

Forest can boast the likes of Wes Morgan and Jermaine Jenas, while Leeds have seen the likes of Fabian Delph and Jonathan Woodgate come through their system.
