Leeds fans react to Chris Wood news after he confirms he’s on his way out

The striker has made himself unavailable to play against Sunderland tonight...


After plenty of speculation linking Leeds United’s star striker to Burnley, he has released a statement ahead of their game against Sunderland later today.

And it’s safe to say that it hasn’t gone down well with Whites fans.

The 25-year-old has bagged 44 goals in 88 appearances since joining from Leicester in 2015. So it’s not hard to see why fans are, well, a bit pissed off.

To kick us off, one fan posted a photo of the ‘Side Before Self’ mantra, suggesting a picture really does speak a thousand words…

One fan suggested he should pay for every single child who chose to have his name on their shirts. I reckon the chances are this lad has pictures of him on his bedroom wall, too.

Another fan did his best to convince himself it was all Leeds’ intention anyway.

Perhaps our favourite of all of the Chris Woods tweets, though, is this one. It’s also a real contender for Didn’t Happen of The Year 2017.

This lad knows how to handle grief:

A creative reaction here from one fan who mentions Charlie Taylor who left Leeds for Burnley in July:

Then again, another Twitter user had the right attitude in the face of panic:

Looks like Wood won’t be rushing back to Elland Road for a while.
