Spanish youngster Hugo Diaz is set to leave Leeds United after two seasons at the club.

Diaz sent a message on Twitter to thank fans for their support over the past couple of years.

 

Leeds signed Diaz from Deportivo La Coruna in 2017.

He played for the first team under Paul Heckingbottom but did not get a chance under Marcelo Bielsa despite some brilliant under-23 performances.

Diaz thrived for Carlos Corberan's league winning under-23 side and captained the team.

He was often seen interacting with fans after games and on social media.

This made the young talent a popular player and the reaction to his release reflected this.

Here is a look at how Leeds fans responded to Diaz's message...
