Leeds fans have taken to Twitter to question whether they really want the club to sign NEC Nijmegen’s pacy winger Anthony Limbombe.
The Belgian under-19 international has been linked with a move to Elland Road for the majority of the summer, and is now reportedly considering legal action against the Eredivisie outfit who appear to be blocking a move.
This comes after the 21-year-old wasn’t included in Saturday’s friendly against Hannover and is yet to turn up to training.
Leeds’ fanbase have questioned whether a move for Limbombe will be beneficial after he created a rift with his club.
Some believe that it would be wrong to bring a controversial figure like Limbombe into the dressing room, while some have even likened his efforts to that of Peter Odemwingie, who tried in vain to force a move to QPR in 2013.
The way this Limbombe has acted at NEC, why would anyone want to sign a player like him? Seems a right clown. #lufc

If Limbombe really wanted to come to Leeds he'd be sat outside Elland Rd in his car like Peter Odemwingie. #lufc

Limbombe sounds like he's got a cracking attitude…… erm, no thanks. #lufc

Limbombe isn't the kind of player I'd like to see at #lufc. If he came and had a good season, he'd demand a move away! Not my kind of player

Limbombe must be the most eager person to play for #lufc in forever. Can guarantee he’ll Kebe all over the place if we get him.

Limbombe pulling off his best Sterling impression. #lufc

Move on from Limbombe FFS, sounds like a mess we don't need to get involved with!
Full Back, CB, Winger/Striker are priority IMO! #LUFC

NEC could cash in on their star-man rather than risk losing him on a free in 12 months time, and have signed a replacement after confirming the arrival of former Ingolstadt winger Reagy Baah Ofosu.
Manager Garry Monk is keen to add width to his Leeds squad, with only Jordan Botaka, Stuart Dallas and new on-loan signing Hadi Sacko recognised as wingers.
