Leeds United are flying high in the Championship this season, currently perched second in the standings and occupying an automatic promotion spot, but there is still plenty of football to be played.

Marcelo Bielsa is likely to strengthen his side in January when the transfer window reopens and one rumour has suggested that former Sunderland winger Jeremain Lens, now at Besiktas, has emerged as the target.

The 31-year-old possesses bags of pace which could be of use to Leeds in the wide position, especially with the injury problems that the Peacocks have encountered this season – although his age could prove to be a stumbling block.

Lens has caught the eye in the Europa League this season for the Turkish side, scoring four goals in nine appearances, but Besiktas face a stern test next week against Malmo as they seek to secure their spot in the latter stages of the competition.

Many Leeds fans reacted on social media to the reports and we have gathered some of their comments below.
