Leeds United fans divided as Christiansen speaks out on Bridcutt future

According to reports in the Nottingham Post, Leeds United midfielder Liam Bridcutt is a transfer target for Championship rivals, but Whites boss Thomas Christiansen has hinted that the 28-year-old is still part of his plans.

The Nottingham Post had said that Forest could make a move for the 28-year-old, who has just one year remaining on his contract, after he failed to make the match-day squad for their opening three fixtures of this season.

However, Bridcutt was named on the substitutes’ bench for the visit of Fulham in midweek and Christiansen told Phil Hay of the Yorkshire Evening Post prior to the Yorkshire outfit’s trip to Sunderland on Saturday evening that he is “part of his plans”.

Leeds United supporters were quick to have their say on the story via social media, and they were largely divided with their opinions.

While some believe that they need Bridcutt as cover in what is sure to be another long and difficult league campaign, others believe he should go and they would take a £2m offer for the midfielder.
