Leeds loanee Mustapha Carayol angrily addresses Twitter claims

Leeds' Middlesbrough loanee has responded to claims made on social media.

Leeds United winger Mustapha Carayol has dismissed claims attributed to him via social media as 'absolute comedy'.

Carayol, is on loan from Middlesbrough for the rest of the season, and has scored two goals since arriving in January.

On Thursday evening a screenshot was posted on social media purporting to be messages from Carayol, alleging he criticised the hierarchy at Elland Road.

Carayol has quickly moved to reject the suggestions, slamming them as nonsense.

The Yorkshire Evening Post reported just this week that Leeds United want to sign Carayol on a permanent basis in the summer after his impressive start.

Clearly if he had actually been exposed as being critical of Steve Evans or Massimo Cellino, his chances of landing a permanent deal would quickly diminish, and Carayol is wise to quickly dismiss the gossip as a hoax before it got out of control and caused him a big problem.

Carayol is one of the few natural wingers Leeds have in the squad, and joined after a loan spell with Yorkshire rivals Huddersfield Town earlier in the season.
