According to The Mirror journalist David Anderson on Twitter, reports linking Brentford midfielder Romaine Sawyers with a move to Leeds United are wide of the mark, and plenty of Whites fans have been quick to react on Twitter.

Football Insider said earlier this month that the Yorkshire outfit were ready to compete with Scottish giants Celtic for the signature of the Bees star, who has since been the subject of a £2.2m offer from West Bromwich Albion.
A separate Football Insider report said on Monday that United were ready to make one last push to win the race for the 27-year-old, who contributed seven assists in 46 appearances for the west London last term having played in both a central and advanced midfield role.

Anderson’s recent tweet suggests Marcelo Bielsa’s men don’t hold an interest in the St Kitts & Nevis international at all though, which makes sense given the options they currently have in that position – Kalvin Phillips, Adam Forshaw, Jamie Shackleton and Mateusz Klich among others.
Leeds supporters have taken to social media to have their say on Anderson’s update, and it’s fair to say they were feeling pretty negative.

Many decided to take aim at the hierarchy and suggested that they are just a selling club, while others didn’t seem surprised at all with some believing they won’t make another signing before the Championship window slams shut on August 8.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…

We would rather sell players. And then invest in loan players then come end of the season say, what’s happened to all our players where they gone. JESUS CHRIST ??.
