Tom Pearce played his first game for Leeds on Saturday and sent a message to fans after the game saying he was “happy” to make his debut.
He also said that the fans were “different class” all the way through, and the Elland Road faithful have taken to Twitter to respond.
Pearce posted the message to his Twitter page on Sunday after the 2-1 defeat to Sheffield Wednesday.

The 19-year-old left-back put in a solid shift in his first game, which couldn’t have been easy with the current troubles surrounding the club.
He looked nervy to start with but kicked on as the game went on, with fans pointing out his range of passes in the second half.
That led to some of them comparing him to former player Charlie taylor.
Fans were pleased with what they saw from him on Saturday and also with the time he’d taken out to send them a message.
Here are the best reactions to the tweet from Tom Pearce:
Well played best passing I've seen all season from the lb position.
