According to reports on ClubCall, Leeds United are weighing up a January loan move for out-of-favour Huddersfield Town left-back Scott Malone, and Whites fans have been quick to have their say on the rumour.
The 26-year-old only joined the Terriers during the summer from Fulham but he has found first team opportunities hard to come by after only featuring for 56 minutes in the Premier League, and ClubCall suggests that he could leave on a temporary basis in the New Year in order to get more regular playing time.
The report adds that Leeds are keen on Malone, and it would be no surprise given Thomas Christiansen has already used Vurnon Anita, Cameron Borthwick-Jackson and Gaetano Berardi in the position this season and perhaps is yet to decide who is his best option there.
Leeds supporters took to social media to give their thoughts on the rumour, and while some said they “hope there’s some truth in it”, others are more pessimistic and believe it’s “not going to happen”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
Don’t get me wrong I love Berardi but the left full back position is where we’ve looked most vulnerable, it does need fixing tbh #lufc

14 games to go b4 next window. If we are in or around top 6 then we must push on with new recruits. Malone at Town would be a start. #lufc
