Ian Harte reacts on Twitter to Leeds United's transfer business

Former Leeds United defender Ian Harte is excited about the club's direction.

Former Leeds United defender Ian Harte has praised the club's early transfer business, and believes they are heading in the right direction.

The left-back took to Twitter the same day the club clinched their fourth signing of the summer, Chris Wood from Leicester City.

The striker cost Leeds in the region of £3 million, the biggest fee the club have spent on a single player in a decade, when they bought Nick Barmby.

Harte feels very positive about how Leeds are approaching the off-season, and reminded his followers of his remaining affection for his old side.

Harte, 37, is still playing professionally, although was released by Bournemouth after they clinched their promotion to the Premier League, and is awaiting new offers.

A specialist from set pieces, he remains the Premier League's second highest scoring defender, playing more than 288 games for the club in total, including featuring in their memorable Champions League run.

He does not usually take to Twitter to discuss his old side, and so for Leeds to have prompted him to praise the strides they appear to be making, shows they are moving forward.
