The Leeds fans in the Transfer Tavern have been jokingly calling for their club to terminate the loan of Tyler Denton to Peterborough after the young defender opened the scoring on his debut in a friendly against Bedford Town with a stunning effort from 25-yards.
19’ GOAL!!! Tyler Denton drives one in from 25 yards to give Posh the lead #BEDvPET

The Whites propping our bar up have been getting increasingly frustrated with the fact that their club are yet to make any sort of signing this summer. However, where they haven’t made any signings they have seen a fair few outgoings, with Denton’s loan to the ABAX Stadium being one of the standouts. Now though, they’ve been calling for Denton to return to Elland Road after his stunner against Evo-Stick league South side, Bedford Town.
Whilst there’s little value in scoring against a side in the seventh tier of English football, the fact that Denton has settled in so easily and has his first goal for the club under his belt is brilliant for The Posh, even if it has just made the Leeds fans regret the decision to loan him. However, his goal at The Eyrie will be one he remembers and he’ll be keen to kick on from it and enjoy a successful season for the League One side before returning to Yorkshire next summer.

As you can see, the fans are keen to get Denton back to Elland Road, although they’ll be hoping he can mature as a player and be a better fit for the first team when he does return.
