West Ham United fans have taken to social networking site Twitter to have their say on the departure of Reece Burke to Bradford City.
The 18-year-old defender has moved to Bradford for an initial period until September 20, 2015, as announced on West Ham’s official website on Thursday.
The highly-rated 18-year-old centre-back has moved to the League One outfit on a Youth Loan.
It seems that West Ham manager Slaven Bilic wants Burke to get more experience and playing time, thus the loan move to Bradford.
The Bantams finished seventh in League One last season and will be aiming to make the playoffs this time around.
Under manager Phil Parkinson, Burke will be looking to establish himself in the first team and play regular competitive football.
Following the transfer of Burke, West Ham and Bradford fans took to Twitter to have their say.
Below are some of the best comments:

@davidewynn exactly the sort of player bradford really needs at the moment, hopefully reece and brad jones will help BCAFC go for promotion— mark (@caesarswife_) August 20, 2015
