Leeds and Wednesday fans react on Twitter to bizarre Rudy Austin news

The Jamaica skipper was released by Leeds this summer but has reportedly had a move to Sheffield Wednesday blocked by the FA.

Released Leeds United midfielder Rodolph Austin has had a move to Yorkshire rivals Sheffield Wednesday blocked by the Football Association, according to the Guardian among others.

Indeed, Austin has apparently been denied a work permit, which has scuppered any potential Wednesday deal - a side he enjoyed one of his better games against during last season's Champioship.

Meanwhile, the 30-year-old has also declared that he should have left Leeds in January, according to quotes carried by the Yorkshire Evening Post.

As such, the bizarre state of affairs has prompted plenty of fan reaction on Twitter from both the Leeds and Sheffield Wednesday faithfuls.

There was a mixed response from Whites supporters...

Sheffield Wednesday fans, meanwhile, have expressed their frustration at the FA's ruling, with many slamming those who criticise Austin.

The former Leeds midfielder would add plenty to the Wednesday midfield, argue several supporters on social media, who are subsequently disappointed to have missed out on the 30-year-old.

Austin enjoyed a strong Gold Cup this summer as Jamaica reached the final of the tournament, although a reckless display almost got the Sheffield Wednesday target sent off in the final against Mexico.

Here's how fans of the club that wanted him reacted to the bizarre news on Twitter:
