Leeds United fans are reacting on Twitter after Glenavon announced a performance partnership with the Championship club.

The Glens - who play in the Northern Ireland Football League Premiership - posted the news via their official Twitter account on Thursday, with the promise of updates to follow on their website later.

Curiously, however, no such information has materialised, while there has been no word at all from the Leeds United camp.

That hasn’t stopped those of a Whites persuasion from saying their piece, mind - here’s how they’ve reacted so far...

Leeds have always had a strong connection to Ireland, both north and south of the border, and currently employ internationals from both sides - notably Eunan O’Kane and Stuart Dallas.

But there is plenty more Irish talent coming through at Elland Road, with Paudie O’Connor (Republic of Ireland) Bailey Peacock-Farrell (Northern Ireland) impressing after being thrown into the first team in recent weeks.

And with a partnership such as the one with Glenavon, there is little sign of that changing soon.

What do you make of Thursday’s announcement?
