According to The Yorkshire Evening Post, Barnsley are interested in signing Leeds United defender Tom Pearce before this summer’s transfer window slams shut.
And the same report claims that Leeds would be open to allowing the 21-year-old to leave Elland Road ahead of the 2019-20 campaign.
Pearce, who spent the second half of last term on loan at Scunthorpe United, signed a new four-year contract with the Whites last summer, but he has not been involved in the club’s preparations for the new season.

The Yorkshire Evening Post reports that Barnsley have ‘a strong interest’ in the defender.
And it would be fair to say that the transfer report has not gone down very well with the Leeds fans on social media.

It has been a frustrating transfer window for the Championship outfit and many of the supporters see little sense in losing another first-team player.

Wish they would stop selling I get a streamlined squad but this is getting ridiculous now! Bolton and Bury are buying more than us!

Of course we are we’ll sell anyone as long as there’s absolutely nobody to replace them

At this rate we will have less full time players than Bolton! But at least Radz bought the ground back! ?
