Leeds United fans on Twitter have been critical of Victor Orta after the club were linked with a move for Middlesbrough centre-back Daniel Ayala.
The Whites fanbase have complained that the Spaniard is simply being lazy in going for another player from his former employers.

The trend of Leeds signing former Middlesbrough players has been rather noticeable since Orta joined the ranks at Elland Road as the Whites have brought in the likes of Adam Forshaw and Patrick Bamford in recent years.
A number of supporters were on board with the suggested signing of Ayala, but it seems that they’re sick of the lack of imagination being shown by the club in going for another Boro man.
Whether or not this deal actually gets done remains to be seen, but Leeds certainly have the links to make it happen.
Here’s what the Elland Road faithful have been saying on social media…
Orta only knows the boro or wolves squads, embarrassing!

Don’t forget though that Orta’s ‘Black Book’ has only got the Boro number in it 😂

Just going to say it now – we shouldn’t sign any more players from Boro. No doubt there’s still a couple of decent enough players but I think it’s time to draw a line under it & be more imaginative. #lufc

Victor Orta look further afield.

No thanks. Is he even any good? Just a cheap link because of Orta and them wanting him out I think.

Got to say I agree with this, it’s just laziness from Orta to keep going back to the same well where he knows what he’s dealing with, no real work being done here just the same thing time and time again https://t.co/dHEDnTHM8V
