Leeds United have excelled in the Championship this season, sitting pretty in second spot and holding a four-point advantage over third-placed West Brom.
Marcelo Bielsa’s guidance has improved the Peacocks significantly this term and the performances of his squad are not going unnoticed, with suggestions that other clubs could make a move in the transfer market.
According to reports, Manchester City hold long-term interest in Leeds talent Jack Clarke and could make a move for the teenager when the window opens in January – although fans of the Premier League leaders are not convinced by the claims.
The 18-year-old has featured five times for Leeds this season, impressing in his cameos off the bench, and has left many calling for him to be giving the chance from the start – which could come during the busy festive period that lies ahead.
However, it seems City fans want to steer clear of the addition and that will be music to the ears of Leeds fans. We have gathered some of their comments below.
Which bit of him saying " we won't sign anyone in January" is hard to understand?
