Lee Peltier attempts to take Leeds fans to task on Twitter

John Smiths Stadium

Huddersfield Town defender Lee Peltier has taken a few digs at Leeds United, following his move this summer.

Lee Peltier has taken a swipe at Leeds United’s transfer policy on Twitter.

The defender left the Whites to join Huddersfield Town this summer on a free transfer and he seems to have been less than impressed by his former club’s transfer dealings over the transfer window.

The disagreement between Peltier and the Leeds supporters started after it was revealed that Mark Hudson, the Terriers’ most recent recruit, rejected a chance to move to Elland Road this summer.

Upon hearing this news Peltier sarcastically tweeted:yer am sure you was [interested in signing Hudson] wonder why he didn't join.”

 

It was a message that understandably aggravated the Leeds fans, which led to their former defender receiving a host of abusive messages from the fans, and he reacted in turn. 

When he was told that he was let go because he wasn't good enough, he appeared to take a jibe at the amount of players who have left Leeds recently. 

He posted: "Seems that the case [deemed not good enough by Cellino] for a lot your players who recently left" and followed this tweet up with by pointing towards the club's controversial decision to sell Smith. 

Smith joined Fulham in a £750,000 deal in a move which frustrated Leeds fans, but it is unlikely to rankle as much Peltier's criticism.

The 27-year-old's departure from Elland Road was met with a mixed response after he failed to really make an impact at the club during his stay there. 

Peltier was never handed a long-term position, having to play right across the back line, and it seemed to negatively affect his form. 

He has now returned to the club where he made his name and he will be hoping to have a positive season at Huddersfield, who he seemed to suggest would finish ahead of Leeds at the end of the season.
