Leeds United have finally re-signed Liam Bridcutt.

Leeds United have completed a deal to re-sign Liam Bridcutt, who impressed at the club on loan last season.

Fans had been clamouring for Bridcutt's arrival throughout the summer, and his arrival was much sought after.

Yet the protracted nature of the deal had been a continual frustration for supporters, who were rocked by seeing academy star Lewis Cook sold in July.

The expectation was back then that Leeds would push through a deal for Bridcutt in time for him to join the second week of pre-season, instead the negotiations have prolonged into mid-August.

Bridcutt is unavailable to play this evening against Fulham, so it could be the fourth Championship game of the season by time he makes his debut.

It is better late than never, and Leeds should be glad to get it over the line, but given their poor start to the season with two league losses out of two, they would really have benefited from getting Bridcutt over the line earlier.

The announcement was greeted with mixed reaction, with many supporters hugely positive, labelling Bridcutt a future captain, and a game changer for the club.

Yet not all were happy, expressing their frustration at the club's slow negotiations, and the impact it has had on their season, while also questioning if Bridcutt can live up to the expectations.

Here is a look at the reaction...
