Leeds United fans were bemoaning the news regarding youngster Eddie Nketiah after it was revealed that he is set to return to Arsenal.
Have Leeds dropped the ball on Eddie Nketiah?
According to James Benge from football.london, the 20-year-old will return to north London before heading back out on loan.
Nketiah is thought to be well admired by clubs in the Championship with three different sides thought to be fighting for his signature next month.
Bristol City, Brentford and Nottingham Forest are all thought to be interested in a move for the player.
Nketiah has endured a tough time at the Elland Road outfit having played just 618 minutes across the Championship and Carabao Cup.
Out of the 25 league games, Marcelo Bielsa’s side have played, Nketiah has featured in the starting XI in just one of those fixtures (via Transfermarkt).
Fans were left bemoaning the news of his seemingly imminent departure as they took to Twitter to react.
Here is a selection of tweets from the Yorkshire faithful:
I hope this won’t come back to bite us. It does raise questions too.
1. Why did Orta go for this, knowing Bielsa mightn’t even play him?
2. What plans have the club in place to find a replacement?
3. What input will Bielsa have in any potential signing and will he even play him?

I’m Nervous about this for numerous reasons; bamford gets injured will the replacement be able to just come in and make a impact in this demanding system without time to adjust?
Will Nketia come back to haunt us..

Are own fault this guy will be a sensational player but we gave him bench time no roation! 3 million loan fee wasted by Orta and The management

Oh dear, we could be down to Bamford and the U23s. If he does go do we get another Bamford type recognising that MB won’t play 2 forwards

Disgusting how we got him and didn’t play him. Way better than PB. Just makes us look tinpot.

Not gonna lie will be gutted by this as I don’t think we’ve seen anywhere near the best of him at Leeds but good luck to him. https://t.co/TMpEoRV58a
