Leeds United: Fans take to Twitter after hearing process of Eddie Nketiah loan deal

Leeds fans have taken little time in becoming endeared to young loanee Eddie Nketiah. The Arsenal man bagged for them on his debut in the Whites’ 3-0 win over Salford City in the Carabao Cup 1st round, but signing the youngster was quite the ordeal.

Step up, Victor Orta. The Spanish director of football at Elland Road was key to bringing in Nketiah, as he faced off against Lee Johnson of Bristol City and a representative of German club Fortuna Dusseldorf to eventually convince both Arsenal and Nketiah that the Yorkshire club was the right move.

This has all been revealed by the ever-reliable Phil Hay on The Athletic, and after reading about how far the Whites, and Orta in particular, went into making sure that the young Arsenal teenager signed for them to spearhead their Championship title push, fans have since had their say.

The Whites, going off the tweets above, seem fascinated by the complication of signing Nketiah and it’s up to the youngster to prove that he’s worth the hassle now.
