Well, it looks as if there’s a pretty big consensus amongst the fanbase.
Now it’s time to see if the amount of pressure from the fans can turn into action from the board.
According to The Athletic, the hierarchy at Southampton are willing to let striker Che Adams move on in this window, providing that the club taking him on pays a £1m loan fee, but with an obligation to pay more £10m at the end of the season.
The report also states that despite Saints manager Ralph Hassenhuttl desperately wanting Adams to stay, the 23-year-old wants to come to Elland Road this window, so that might force some changes to take place down at St Mary’s.
So when the news came out regarding the fee, Leeds United fans could not contain themselves. With the amount of money that you get from being in the Premier League, they seemed to see it as not so much a gamble, but rather something that they’d be stupid to pass up.
We'll get the £1m back when we go up. What are we waiting for??

We must do this deal! I can’t even imagine what Bielsa could do with this guy. Look at Phillips, Bamford, Harrison. Learn from the Daniel James saga last season and finish business quickly!

What’s a million if it gets us up ! You have to speculate to achieve!

We need to bite the bullet and invest in 2 or 3 quality players before end of window or this could be another disaster, it really feels like now or never #lufc

Why are we dragging this on, £1m fee should now way be a problem and to agree to sign him in summer would be good business aswell he’s still young

If Radz can't fond a million quid with what's at stake then I really don't think we're serious about promotion #lufc

We've got to pay it as we are squandering too many points by not scoring when we dominate teams. And his record in the Championship is excellent. He will be the difference between losing games we control and putting a lot of teams to the sword.

Cost Southampton £15 in the summer. They’d want that back. Surely signing him is no lose even with an obligation to buy. If we don’t go up selling Phillips will cover Costa & Adams. No brainier isn’t it…

Is the money being reported a reasonable fee for Che Adams?
Yes, it's a bargain
No, they're ripping us off
I guess we’ll just have to wait and see if this does come to fruition. One thing is for sure though, if he can keep up his recent record in the division, then it doesn’t come across as that much of a risk in my mind.
