Leeds fans beg club to sign departing Stockdale

Leeds fans are desperate for their club to sign David Stockdale, after Birmingham City told the goalkeeper he can leave the club.

It was a pretty long season for Leeds fans, as what looked like it could be a potential playoff push quickly died out after Christmas.

The arrival of Paul Heckingbottom had little to no effect, but the 40 year-old did make one majorly successful decision by dropping Felix Wiedwald for the impressive Bailey Peacock-Farrell.

Peacock-Farrell had to wait until the final day of the season for his first Leeds clean sheet, although through no fault of his own, and now Leeds fans are calling for a new signing to give him some competition.

According to reports, David Stockdale has been told he can leave Birmingham this summer, as former Leeds man Garry Monk rebuilds the squad.

The 32 year-old made 36 starts for Birmingham this season as they battled relegation, and would be an excellent deputy to Peacock-Farrell.

Not only would his arrival mean the club have two quality players fighting for one spot, the Leeds-born Stockdale could certainly teach the youngster a thing or two.

With Wiedwald surely certain to leave, the fans are all saying the same thing about Stockdale’s availability, and some of the best Twitter reactions can be found below…
