'Just what we need' - Leeds fans react to reported talks for top-flight playmaker
By Danny Wright
Leeds are reportedly contemplating an offer for Crystal Palace midfielder Jordon Mutch – and fans of the Yorkshire club have reacted indifferently to the news on Twitter.
It was added that the Whites would also consider signing the top-flight playmaker, who can also play on the wings, on a season-long loan deal.
Mutch doesn’t seem to hold a place in the Crystal Palace first-team after he was shipped out on loan to Reading in the second half of last season as they challenged for promotion to the Premier League.
However although he commands a lot of experience in the top-flight and Championship, Leeds fans aren’t sure if they actually need to sign him before the transfer window slams shut next week.

One supporter sarcastically claimed that Mutch is “just what we need” with the high number of midfielders already on the books at Elland Road.
Here is a selection of their tweets:

Mutch made just nine appearances for Reading in the back half of last season, scoring on his debut in the 2-2 draw at Ipswich in February.
He has a total of 40 appearances for Palace, but has never scored or supplied an assist.
