Leeds fans react on Twitter to Jason Pearce's departure to Wigan

We compile the best reaction from Leeds supporters to Jason Pearce's departure from the club to join Wigan Athletic earlier today.

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.
