Leeds United supporters have been left divided in their opinions after Jason Pearce's transfer to Wigan Athletic was confirmed earlier today.
Pearce started the campaign as Leeds' captain, but he has fallen out of favour recently and Wigan were quick to take advantage over the uncertainty over his first-team place and snap him up.
It was a transfer which seemed to go through at a rapid rate and the reaction towards it from Leeds supporters has been far from unanimous.
Many Whites fans felt Pearce still had a lot to offer the side, whilst others say that his performances so far this term have proven that he isn't of the standard needed at Elland Road.
Pearce has not reached top form this season, but he still remains a talented centre-back and there is a concern that he could thrive away from the Yorkshire club.
Whites fans have seen Tom Lees impress at Sheffield Wednesday, after leaving Elland Road this summer, and they will be hoping a similar scenario doesn't occur with Pearce.
Leeds have already been planning for Pearce's departure and Sol Bamba, who signed on loan from Palermo this week, looks to have been brought in as his replacement.
Here is the best reaction from Whites fans to Pearce's transfer on social media site Twitter.
I can see Jason Pearce doing a Tom Lees i.e. Excelling as soon as he leaves Leeds #LUFC— Anthony Lewis (@tonylewis92) January 30, 2015
Was anyone moaning that Pearce hasn't been playing the last few weeks? Now everyone is moaning he has been sold. Better CB at the club #lufc— Stanners (@DGS82) January 30, 2015
Not bothered about losing Pearce, had his moments but a decent championship player is all he'll ever be. Good luck to him. #lufc— Glenn Briers (@glenn_briers) January 30, 2015
The perfect summary of Jason Pearce and his time at LUFC in my opinion would be that he showed the right attitude but lacked the ability.— Ryan Jowett (@ttewoj_nayr) January 30, 2015
We still sold Pearce for less than we bought him for. Not good business that really #lufc— David Johnston (@djstar3d) January 30, 2015
