Sheffield Wednesday fans are crucifying George Hirst, after the youngster tweeted for the first time since his departure from the club.
Wednesday fans weren’t happy when it was announced Hirst will leave the club this summer, mainly due to the manner in which the transfer happened.
The youngster had been heavily linked with a move to Leicester, but despite his contract ending this summer the Foxes would have had to pay compensation to the Owls as Hirst is under the age of 24.
The Belgian club are a sister club of Leicester, and they are currently managed by former Leicester boss Nigel Pearson, so it would be no surprise if Hirst moves to the King Power stadium in the near future.
The young attacker only made two senior appearances for the Owls, so fans aren’t worried about the hole he will leave in the squad, but they are annoyed by the manner of the deal.
He tweeted a goodbye message to the club this week, and let’s just say it isn’t going down too well. You can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below…
Much much much too little too late!

He’s screwed the club going to Leicester’s “abroad team” until he moves to Leicester next season which means Wednesday get no compo at all!

Saying another youngster gone is a bit of a garbage response. He had no respect for the club or his team mates he only cared about the money good riddance. I’d rather @swfc try keeping Sean Clare

So instead of signing biggest youth contract #swfc have offered “the club you love” you decide to do a dodgy deal, when do you sign for Leicester city then

Supported your entire life but decided to hold them to ransom and showed no loyalty when you haven’t achieved anything as yet. Good luck at Leicester.
