Leeds fans react on Twitter to speculation £7m bids submitted

By Alex Stevens

Leeds have reportedly rejected three bids from Premier League clubs for left-back Charlie Taylor – and fans have given mixed verdicts on Twitter.

The Guardian claim the Championship promotion challengers have fielded offers of £7million for the 23-year-old from Premier League clubs West Brom, Middlesbrough and Crystal Palace.

It is said that the Yorkshire big hitters have responded by knocking back the bids and re-emphasising that the Elland Road academy product is not for sale this month.

There have been mixed reactions from supporters to the news, with some saying Leeds should snap the hands off suitors given that Taylor is out of contract in the summer and is in line to leave for just a compensation fee.

Others said that £7million would only buy one of Taylor’s limbs, while one fan doubted whether the left-sided defender even wants to leave this month.

Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Leeds have had a history of selling their prize assets in recent years, with the likes of Sam Byram, Lewis Cook, Ross McCormack and Robert Snodgrass all leaving after the club caved in.

The offers for Taylor are big money for a club who have been run on a relative shoestring budget during some financially challenging years.

However, Taylor will not be a free transfer in the summer as FA rules dictate that Leeds will be owed compensation for his development, as the Elland Road academy product will be under the age of 24.

This is likely to run into millions of pounds given that Taylor is a mainstay of the Yorkshire giants’ team and was named their player of the year last season.

Monk revealed on Wednesday that Taylor will play no part in Friday’s league encounter against fellow promotion hopefuls Derby at Elland Road as he is still struggling with an achilles problem.

The youngster has started 22 of Leeds’ 25 Championship matches this season and been an integral player for the fifth-placed side.

In other Leeds transfer news, Monk has made a shock transfer revelation after meeting with new owner Andrea Radrizzani.
