Leeds United supporters have flocked to a recent tweet from a reported transfer target with many begging the young starlet to join the club this summer.
On Thursday afternoon, The Athletic’s Phil Hay revealed that the Whites were in ‘advanced talks’ with Crystal Palace teenager Jadan Raymond after he rejected a professional contract at Selhurst Park.
It’s claimed that the 16-year-old midfielder is one of the most highly-rated players amongst Palace’s youth ranks and will depart the club early next week.
Should Jadan Raymond join Leeds?
Raymond is also said to be in discussions with Portuguese top-flight outfit Vitoria Guimaraes.
The Eagles prospect posted a clip to Twitter and it’s led to much of the Elland Road faithful pleading with him to make the move to west Yorkshire.
Some fans tried to use Whites boss Marcelo Bielsa as bait, claiming that he’s produced many a star during his managerial career, including Alexis Sanchez, Aymeric Laporte and of course, Kalvin Phillips.
Whilst others simply said “welcome” as if he had already signed for the Championship side.
Here’s how they all reacted…

Players who Bielsa has developed: Alexis Sanchez, Benjamin Mendy, Dimitri Payet, Mauricio Pochettino, Aymeric Laporte, Gabriel Batistuta, Javi Martinez, Kalvin Phillips. You know what to do!
