Leeds United fans were poking fun at Championship rivals Bristol City after the latest update on Eddie Nketiah’s future was revealed.
According to David Ornstein, the young Arsenal forward will not go out on loan this month after he impressed head coach Mikel Arteta in training. Nketiah was recalled from his loan spell at the Yorkshire outfit at the start of this month and, according to a graphic on the club’s website (via @afcstuff), seemed like he was headed to Ashton Gate.
One fan couldn’t resist having a dig at City’s manager, Lee Johnson.
Check on Lee Johnson for us Phil please

However, the fact he will remain in north London has provided Leeds fans with something to laugh at as they took to Twitter to poke fun at their rival club. Here is a selection of tweets from the Elland Road faithful:
