There has been a mixed reaction amongst Leeds fans on Twitter to the news that Jay-Roy Grot will be a part of the Netherlands' under-20 squad for their upcoming friendlies with Switzerland and Italy.

His imposing physique suggested that he would provide something different to Thomas Christiansen's squad, especially when his first piece of notable action saw him out-muscle a Nottingham Forest player and almost send him off the City Ground pitch on his debut.

But his call-up has also prompted a number of fans to criticise the supporters who have slated Grot, and those fans have reiterated that the forward deserves time as he is still young and is still finding his feet in the Championship

Here is the best of the mixed reaction...
