Leeds United fans were bubbling with excitement after a fan posted Andre Gray’s following list from his Instagram account yesterday.
According to photos posted by @RITGK, the Watford forward is following members of the first-team squad from Elland Road ahead of a potential move. The Englishman has been linked with a transfer to the Yorkshire outfit this month with reports from Football Insider claiming Watford are willing to let him go for a £2m loan fee.
Marcelo Bielsa’s team have been struggling in attacking areas especially in their last three games across all competitions, where they have failed to score a goal (via WhoScored). This comes despite the side having had just under 50 attempts on goal, more than each of their opponents Arsenal, Sheffield Wednesday and Queens Park Rangers. Compared to Patrick Bamford, the Hornets striker has averaged fewer shots per league game, as per WhoScored.
Fans were feeling elated after the image showing the former Burnley man’s social media activity emerged as they took to Twitter to react. Here is a selection of tweets from the Elland Road faithful:
