Leeds fans react on Twitter as attacker reportedly wants out of club
By Harvey Byrne
Leeds fans have urged attacker Max Gradel to “come home” on Twitter after reports emerged on Tuesday that the attacker wanted out of Premier League side Bournemouth.
The 29-year-old made the switch to the Cherries in the summer of 2015 for a reported £7million from French side Saint-Etienne.
However, he has made just 23 Premier League appearances in the last two seasons with just nine coming in this campaign and BBC Sport have claimed that he now wants a move away from Eddie Howe’s team.
The report has noticeably caused some interest from the Leeds fan base on social media after he starred for the Yorkshire club between 2009 and 2011.
A number of fans were keen to invite the now experienced trickster to return to Leeds, while others speculated about the chance of him coming back to the club in the summer.

Gradel made 82 appearances for Leeds during his time at the club, bringing a return of 25 goals and 13 assists.
He starred as the club won promotion from League One back in 2010 and Gradel could be a realistic target if the Yorkshire giants return to the top-flight, or even remain in the Championship in the next campaign.
