Leeds fans split on decision to sell Vieira

Loads of Leeds fans have been reacting to the latest transfer news, as it looks like Ronaldo Vieira’s time at Elland Road has come to an end.

According to Sky Sports, Vieira is close to a £6.2m switch to Serie A side Sampdoria.

The 20 year-old is expected to complete his medical on Tuesday, after making 63 Championship appearances with Leeds.

Sampdoria were originally chasing West Ham’s Pedro Obiang, and it looks like the Hammers’ insistence on keeping their wiry midfielder has turned the Italians’ attention towards Vieira.

The young midfielder has shown glimpses of brilliance at Elland Road, and it seems bizarre to sell a talented youngster when the club are short of quality options in midfield.

On the other hand, fans wanted a manager that puts his foot down and picks the players he wants, and it’s clear that the boss has no place for the youngster in his new look Leeds team.

Fans aren’t convinced, with some happy to back Bielsa’s call, and others bashing the decision to cash in on Vieira so soon.
