There are rumours speculating that Lewis Cook could return to Leeds on loan in January – and fans of the Yorkshire giants have stated on Twitter that he may not be good for their side now.
Cook, 19, left the club in the summer for the Premier League with Bournemouth signing a four-year deal.
However, after making just one league and two cup appearances for the Cherries, a rumour has been started on Twitter stating that the England Under-20 international could make an Elland Road return.
Fans weren’t too keen on social media with the speculation that Cook could move back to Yorkshire, with some believing they now have better options.
Here are a selection of their messages on Twitter:
Screw Lewis Cook, he's left & made his bed, Leeds need move on with players we have, not playing players that only benefit other clubs #lufc

I would love Lewis Cook back of course, but not sure 4-2-3-1 gets the best out of him. Imo he suits a 4-3-3 alongside Bridcutt and O'Kane

I don't think we'd gain anything by loaning Lewis Cook back in. Hes not better than Bridcutt and we need to develop our own players #Lufc

Cook made his debut for the Yorkshire giants against Milwall in the 2014-15 season opener.
He soon became a regular for the famous side, playing in 85 encounters for the club in total before his move to the south coast.
However, manager Eddie Howe added Jack Wilshere to his squad in the summer with midfield duo Andrew Surman and Harry Arter also keeping Cook out of the team.
Leeds also added midfield quartet Pablo Hernandez, Matt Grimes, Liam Bridcutt and Eunan O’Kane to their team in the window, meaning Cook may also find it difficult to get playing time at the Championship side.
In other Leeds transfer news, Vinnie Jones has claimed that Garry Monk will sign some some “great players” at the club next year.
