Leeds fans react to arrival of Ajax defender

Leeds United announced on Monday afternoon that they had completed the signing of Pascal Struijk from Ajax on a three-and-a-half-year contract.

The 18-year-old has been capped at Under-17 level by the Netherlands, and will go straight into the Leeds Under-23 squad for their clash against Birmingham City on Friday.

On the face of it, a Championship club signing a youngster from Ajax is quite exciting. Well, it should be for the team’s supporters.

However, the Leeds fans reacted pretty negatively to the deal for Struijk.

Indeed, with the first team losing three of their last four Championship matches, the club’s supporters want to see some established players arriving at Elland Road before the end of the January transfer window.

Leeds are still ninth in the Championship table – just five points off the playoffs – but they face a real battle to break into the top six this season.

Let’s hope that Struijk was not reading the reaction to his arrival on Monday afternoon. A selection of the Twitter responses can be seen below:
