Leeds United fans have taken to Twitter to give their reaction to reported target Tom Heaton starting for Burnley against West Ham United at the weekend.
Heaton featured for Burnley in their Premier League game against West Ham at Turf Moor on Sunday.
The 32-year-old goalkeeper started the match in place of Joe Hart and played well in the Clarets’ 2-0 win.
However, with the England international goalkeeper starting against West Ham and playing well, some Leeds fans now think that the chance to sign the former Manchester United prospect - who earns £35,000 per week as salary, according to Spotrac.com - is gone.
The West Yorkshire outfit need a goalkeeper following the return of Jamal Blackman to Chelsea due to injury.
Bailey Peacock-Farrell is the first-choice goalkeeper at Leeds at the moment, and the Northern Ireland international needs to be pushed, especially as the 22-year-old has made mistakes from time to time this season.

I think we need to manage our expectations, we will not get any “names” in January imho— yorkielad (@leedsio) December 30, 2018
Was always going to be a long shot— Harry (@HarryFoleyLUFC) December 30, 2018
Nick Pope? Maybe Heaton never realistic, I dunno. Westwood at SWFC seems to be the one linked atm.— Stuart Grant (@McClumsy84) December 30, 2018
