The transfer window slammed shut on Tuesday evening, and Leeds’ January business received a mixed reaction from supporters on Twitter.
The Yorkshire giants have had a so far successful campaign under the guidance of Garry Monk as they currently occupy fourth place in the table.
Going into the window fans were eager to see a number of their loan stars tied up to permanent deals, while also strengthening the squad in general.
The famous second tier side agreed a permanent move for Pablo Hernandez as their first deal, while they waited until deadline-day to secure two more loan signings in Alfonso Pedraza and Modou Barrow to bring an end to their dealings.
However, some fans believed that the club needed a striker to cover Chris Wood in case of injury, while others felt that they missed out on some good players who were on the move.
But, the majority were happy that the club kept hold of their key players while making some exciting acquisitions.
Here are a selection of their messages on Twitter:
At least no key players left! Undecided over the two new boys but concerned with no announcment regarding Pontus! #lufc

@LeedsUnited_MAD better than I expected. Would have liked a covering centre back and a experienced striker to cover Wood

Bogle went to Wigan, Taylor went to City. Clough to Forest. Missed out on some good players, going for peanuts this window #lufc

Note to self: avoid Twitter in transfer windows! Can't win with some #lufc fans
IMO was a decent window, why change what's not broken

Pleased with transfer window (except Mowatt) – glad Monk backed & got 2 players. But going to be terrified every time Wood is tackled! #lufc

Leeds will now be looking to keep going with their good run in the league and they will facing Blackburn next on Tuesday evening.
The two sides are currently separated by 19 places in the second tier, but the Lancashire outfit have won three of their last five matches in all competitions as they look for dramatic improvements.
In other Leeds transfer news, fans also reacted on Twitter to the signing of Barrow.
