A number of Leeds fans have taken to Twitter to comment on the reports emerging from the Yorkshire Evening Post which have suggested that Whites left-back Tyler Denton is a loan target for Serie B side Brescia.

Denton has endured a difficult time at Leeds. His first-team debut suggested that he was going to be the next academy graduate to force his way into the senior side on a regular basis as he scored a stunning goal in the League Cup victory over Luton Town in August 2016.

Unfortunately, the left-back has not made a single league appearance for Leeds and a loan spell at Port Vale came to a premature end in January. And with Tom Pearce taking his opportunity with both hands when Paul Heckingbottom replaced Laurens De Bock towards the end of last season, Denton may well be in for a frustrating period if he stays at Elland Road next season.

But perhaps former Leeds owner Massimo Cellino may be about to offer him a way out this summer, with the Yorkshire Evening Post reporting that Brescia want to land him on loan for the coming season with the option to buy him permanently at the end of the year.

The report suggests that Brescia are closing in on signing Marcus Antonsson and hope to have Denton follow the same path this summer. And that has prompted plenty of discussion amongst the Leeds fans on social media.

Some feel that letting him leave would potentially be a mistake given the issue that Marcelo Bielsa faces on the left-hand side of the defence, while others are worried about the lack of stability that playing under Cellino may perhaps bring.

There are some however, who feel that a loan move would be a good call for all parties, and there has even been the suggestion that Leeds should look to sell him permanently rather than loan him out - perhaps with the fan sensing that he faces an uphill battle trying to make the grade with Leeds.

Here is the best of the reaction...
