Leeds target Andy Yiadom will end speculation of a move to Elland Road by signing for Reading, and Leeds fans suspect it could be bad news for Paul Heckingbottom.
2017/18 was a long and arduous season for Leeds fans, as a good start to the season slowly toiled away after Christmas.
The arrival of Paul Heckingbottom had little to no effect on the side’s form, and any hopes of a playoff push evaporated rather quickly.
Fans have not been impressed by Heckingbottom since his arrival, and they weren’t too happy when he lined up the signing of Andy Yiadom.
Yiadom, a versatile full back, had been one of the few bright spots in Barnsley’s miserable relegation season.
Fans had already given up on the season by the time the Yiadom rumours surfaced, and many felt next season would be the exact same if they didn’t aim higher.
Yiadom now looks all set to join Reading, who narrowly escaped relegation themselves, and Leeds fans couldn’t be happier.
While a few are just breathing a sigh of relief as they didn’t want Yiadom anyway, there are plenty who feel Heckingbottom must not be trusted at the club if they aren’t landing his targets.

He’s not needed. Ayling and Coyle are fine.

An indication that Heckingbottom isn't getting his way…?

That’s because PH doesn’t have a say & let’s be honest I’ll doubt his here after the summer

Any indication this is Heck not getting his way?

Well if Leeds did have interest in Yiadom it spells bad news for Heckingbottom surely? A player that less than 8 months ago was playing under Heck doesnt want to join him again when given the chance. That to me tells me everything we nrrd to know about Heckingbottom.
