Leeds United fans have taken to Twitter to react to the news that Oliver Sarkic has signed a permanent deal at Elland Road.

The Whites announced on their official Twitter account and official website on Thursday afternoon that Sarkic, 20, has penned a two and a half year deal which has the option to be extended by a further 12 months as he makes his loan move from Benfica into a permanent one for an undisclosed fee.

Sarkic moved to Elland Road in the summer on loan from the Portuguese giants and while he has not made a single senior appearance for Leeds, he has clearly done enough to impress in Carlos Corberan’s Under-23s squad.

The Montenegro youth international is the latest in a blitz of arrivals for the Yorkshire giants this week.

Yosuke Ideguchi made his move from Gamba Osaka official before moving to Cultural Leonesa on loan, while it has also been confirmed that left-back Laurens De Bock and goalkeeper Kamil Miazek has also been snapped up.

Leeds fans are crying out for Thomas Christiansen and Victor Orta to get in a new striker this month, and although Sarkic fits the bill, he probably won’t be getting anywhere near the first-team for the rest of the season.

The Elland Road faithful seem happy with the acquisition though, even if Sarkic is seen as one for the future.

Here is a selection of their tweets:
