Some Leeds United fans on Twitter are angry with a club announcement on Twitter.

The Elland Road club revealed a two-year sponsorship deal this afternoon, but the wording of the tweet has upset some Leeds supporters.

United began the message by writing 'LUFC are delighted to announce....' in a photo with Kiko Casilla, and some fans initially thought that it was confirmation of a new signing.

The Whites are yet to sign anybody in this summer's transfer window, with much of the speculation centering around the potential departures of big names like Jack Clarke and Kalvin Phillips.

 

Leeds fans, whose side are linked with the likes of Helder Costa and Gigi Buffon, are desperate for arrivals, and here's how some of them reacted to the announcement tweet.

Clarke is heavily expected to join Tottenham Hotspur soon and that'll enhance Leeds' ability to sign players, even if the up-front fee is only around £8.5 million [The Sun].

Marcelo Bielsa's side finished third last season and reinforcements are vital if United are to win Premier League promotion next term.
