Many Leeds United fans have reacted to a tweet shared by journalist Phil Hay, discussing Alan Smith’s departure from the club to Manchester United in 2003.

Who was Leeds United's first £100k transfer signing?

Despite the club’s success, Leeds suffered relegation in 2004, and Smith would leave to join Sir Alex Ferguson’s Man United side.

The move somewhat stunned Elland Road fans after the forward went on record earlier in his career to say he would ‘never play for Manchester United’.

Spending three years at Old Trafford, Smith would go on to win the Premier League in the 2006/2007 season, before spending time with Newcastle United, MK Dons and Notts County.
