Leeds United fans are urging Thomas Christiansen to buy Southampton forward Shane Long with the money raised from Chris Wood’s sale to Burnley.
While losing Wood is a blow to Leeds, the large fee that Burnley have paid to land the striker is some consolation.
And Leeds fans now want to see the money re-invested into their team.
There is a feeling that if Leeds can buy some quality with the cash from Wood’s sale, then they may not be too badly affected by their star striker’s departure.
And Leeds fans have put Southampton striker Long, who is a boyhood supporter of the Whites, right at the top of their wish list.
#lufc should get Shane Long, bags of pace, lethal in the air, would be prolific at that level— Steven Boyle (@Stevie11boyle) August 21, 2017
Shane Long is a grafter, a high energy, 110% always type of player. Fit right in.— Brian Canavan (@BriBriCanavan) August 20, 2017

Long is ten times the player wood is if he moves it will be to another premiership team he's 45k a week if he came to us it would be magic— lufc Damo (@DamienGBratton) August 20, 2017
Long has struggled to nail down a place in Southampton’s first-team in recent times, and could be available this summer.
The Republic of Ireland international scored three goals in 29 Premier League games last season.
