Leeds United fans have taken to Twitter to express their thoughts on new signing, midfielder Madger Gomes.

The Whites announced the recruitment of ex-Liverpool midfielder Gomes on the academy’s official Twitter account on Tuesday, and said the deal had been completed after the 20-year-old’s release from Anfield.

United have signed the Spaniard on a three-year-deal and plan to involve him in the club’s development squad before moving the midfielder into training with the first team.

Leeds supporters have taken to social media to express their delight and approval of the club’s new academy with some fans stating the deal as “interesting”.

Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Gomes signed to Liverpool back in 2014 from Villarreal but the young starlet failed to making an impact while at the club.

The left-footed midfielder made just five appearances in the Premier League 2 for the Reds’ Under-23s last season, and a move to Elland Road will see the Spaniard develop with hopes of breaking into Thomas Christiansen’s first team.

Christiansen was named as Leeds boss earlier in the month after the Yorkshire club were left without a manager for over three weeks following Garry Monk’s shock resignation.

He has now welcomed youngster Gomes to the squad and fans will hope to see the arrival of senior players in the near future.
