Irvine impressed at Burton last term, in what was his first season in the Championship.
The Australian international scored 10 goals in 42 appearances for Burton last term, which has caught the eye of Leeds’ scouts.
However, Whites fans do not appear to be particularly enthused about the rumours that another midfielder could join up.
Just what we need, another midfielder. We're a bit short there.— Batesy (@BatesyLufc) July 26, 2017
Wouldn't get in the side. No disrespect but we have about 12 midfielders. It's defence that were struggling.— Sam Jackson (@samjackson23) July 26, 2017
Not good enough imop. Philips, Viera, Okane, Bridcutt and hopefully Klitch better— Keep the Faith (@Buybeckford) July 27, 2017
Need defenders not another midfielder— Lufc82 (@WaltonAidan) July 27, 2017
That's good, we only have 10 midfielders!— ian slingsby (@slingsby_i) July 27, 2017
Surely we have enough midfielders. Is he creating a wall?— Mip (@mipsical) July 27, 2017
Leeds already have a midfield which is stacked with options, and Thomas Christiansen’s squad is starting to look bloated.
Leeds do want more additions, but Whites supporters appear to believe that strengthening other areas of their squad is more important than bringing in more midfielders.
Christiansen’s men have already signed nine players this summer, with Leeds adding depth to their squad this summer.
Leeds’ competitive campaign gets under way in two weekends’ time when they take on Bolton Wanderers at the Macron Stadium.
