Leeds fans expressed their devastation on Twitter after attacker Sergi Canos starred in Brentford’s 2-0 win over the Yorkshire giants at Griffin Park on Tuesday night.
Canos, 20, was instrumental in the Bees convincing win over Garry Monk’s side, as Lasse Vibe and Romaine Sawyers scored to secure all three points against the play-off contenders.
The Daily Star claim Leeds were close to completing a deal for Canos in the January transfer window, but instead the Spaniard signed for Dean Smith’s side in a deal worth £2million.
The Whites instead brought in Villarreal winger Alfonso Pedraza and speed machine Modou Barrow on loan, but neither are yet to have made a serious impact at Elland Road.
Leeds fans were fuming with their side on Twitter, claiming that it was typical that Leeds missed out on a player who came back to haunt them against London outfit Brentford.
Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Canos is so typical of a player we miss out on, turns into a world beater and far better than anything we picked up in January. #lufc

Former Liverpool star Canos, who moved to Brentford from Championship rivals Norwich in January, created both goals as Leeds suffered their second consecutive loss at Griffin Park.
Since moving to Brentford, Canos has now had a hand in five goals during his last three appearances.
Scoring three times against Burton and Bristol City, Canos’ two assists now leaves Leeds in fifth place ahead of Saturday’s clash against Preston at home.
In other Leeds news, fans have also urged Monk to start this 24-year-old ace against Preston.
