Leeds United fans have been discussing one of their former players on social media this week after Twitter account All Leeds HQ posed an interesting question.
They asked supporters if they would take back defender Tom Lees if the opportunity ever arose, and it’s fair to suggest that not many were in favour of such a situation.
The 29-year-old is now captain of local rivals Sheffield Wednesday after he joined the Owls in 2014 from Elland Road.
Having come through the system at the club, Lees made 135 senior appearances, playing under managers like Neil Warnock, Brian McDermott and Simon Grayson.
Lees’ contract doesn’t expire at Hillsborough until the summer of 2021 where he will be in his 30s, so it’s a hypothetical situation to discuss, but you never know, Marcelo Bielsa is going to need a few central defensive additions this summer.
Here’s what fans have been saying…

No. He’s 30 later this year & won’t be good enough for the PL.

No. Plain and simple.

Is this a sick joke?

29 year CB in the prem who will take at least a season to get up to speed?! Nah, not for me, a developed Casey or Struijk would be a better option IMO
