Watford fans respond to Forestieri on Twitter, urge him to snub Leeds United

Watford's Fernando Forestieri has an option to move to Leeds United.

Italian attacker Fernando Forestieri has a decision to make over his future.

The Mirror report that Leeds United have agreed to pay a fee of around £3 million for the attacker, with personal terms to be discussed.

Forestieri was named on Watford's bench for their Premier League draw with Southampton on Sunday, and took to Twitter after the match.

He gave little away in terms of a potential exit, instead indicating his heart still lies with Watford.

Forestieri was inundated with replies from Leeds United fans urging him to make the switch to the Championship side.

Yet it says everything about his popularity with the Watford support that there were an equally vocal number of Watford fans sending messages to him urging him to stay at the club.

If the forward is already wavering over the possibility of leaving the Hornets, then the support from his current side will only make it harder for him to leave.

Manager Quique Flores is however not giving him the game time he will want, and Leeds fans will have to hope he finds the possibility of playing regularly more appealing than sitting on the bench at Watford, no matter how highly he is regarded.

Here is a look at the responses from Watford fans to Forestieri's tweet...
