Leeds United fans have taken to Twitter to give a mixed reaction to the news that Paul McKay and Jack McKay have reportedly had their deals terminated by the club.
BBC reporter Adam Pope claimed on his personal Twitter account on Monday that the Whites have torn up the deals for the twin bothers, who were signed by the Whites in 2016.
it is understood that the duo have headed to Cardiff to have trials after Inside Wales Sport reported that former Leeds boss Neil Warnock is aiming to improve the quality of his Under-23 set-up in South Wales.
Centre-back Paul McKay, 21, only ever made one appearance for the Whites senior side which infamously came in the shock FA Cup defeat to Sutton United last season.
His brother Jack McKay, also 21, had never featured in the first-team.
Now that it is reported that the duo have had their deals torn up six months early, Leeds fans on Twitter have been reacting to the news online, however they don’t seem to be too gutted that they have gone.
Here is a selection of their tweets:
it's hilarious isn't it ???? you couldn't even make it up. They are both terrible footballers and will never make it.

Leeds have made big changes to their Under-23s side this year after Victor Orta was brought in as director of football.
The development side now has a much more continental look to it with rising stars such as Oriol Rey and Kun Temenuzhkov.
