Watford forward Fernando Forestieri will not join Leeds United, claimed Massimo Cellino earlier today.

Leeds United fans have taken to social networking site Twitter to give their reaction to club chairman Massimo Cellino’s stance over Fernando Forestieri.

Earlier today, Cellino revealed on Leeds’ official website that the Whites will not be pursuing a deal to recruit Fernando Forestieri from Watford before the end of the summer transfer window next month.

The Whites were interested in recruiting the forward, but the Italian entrepreneur claimed that the 25-year-old did not have the right mentality to play for the West Yorkshire outfit.

Leeds and Watford, who got promoted to the Premier League from the Championship at the end of last season, had agreed a fee for the transfer of Forestieri, as revealed in the statement.

However, Cellino stated that the former Genoa striker did not have the desire and hunger that some of the other Leeds summer signings showed before putting pen to paper.

Following the statement, Leeds fans took to Twitter to have their say on the end to the Forestieri pursuit.
