Leeds United fans on Twitter are far from happy as the club announced yet another centre-back would be leaving the club as Liam Kitching joined Forest Green Rovers.
This comes after Aapo Halme, Hugo Diaz and Paudie O’Connor all departed the club, and just a few hours after the announcement regarding Kitching it was revealed that Pontus Jansson had signed for Brentford.
This leaves Leeds incredibly light at the back heading into the new season with only Ben White, Liam Cooper, Gaetano Berardi and Pascal Strujik able to play in that role.
The Yorkshire club had a number of injury issues in that position last season, so it is strange to see them so willing to allow their youngsters to depart.

It remains to be seen whether or not the Whites will buy a new defender, but if they don’t they will be left with a lack of depth at centre-back.
Here’s what the Elland Road faithful have been saying on Twitter…
Looks like we’re selling everything including the Kitching sink.

Why are we mass selling all our Defenders? ?

Are we going on the principal of attack attack attack this year

Halme, Kitching, Diaz and O’Connor gone, with Jansson to follow. Seems strange when we were already struggling with cover at centre back last season. Can’t wait to see Ayling and Berardi fill in again once White picks up an injury and Cooper is suspended ?

It’ll be a right laugh watching Cooper on his Todd trying to protect Kiko
