A number of Leeds United fans have taken to Twitter to comment on the news that Tyler Denton has left Elland Road permanently (official Leeds website).

The 23-year-old, who joined the Whites aged six (BBC Sport) and came through the ranks at the club, has joined League Two side Stevenage for an undisclosed fee.

Denton leaves Elland Road having made three senior appearances - and sadly, none in the league - having spent the last two seasons on loan at Port Vale and Peterborough United.

 

 

In the first half of his Leeds debut, in the Carabao Cup second round against Luton Town in August 2016, the defender produced a great finish with the outside of his left foot from 20 yards to give his side a 1-0 win.

Since then, however, Denton has not managed to break into the first team, so his move away comes as no real surprise, but there was nonetheless an air of sadness amongst some Leeds fans on social media.

Others, meanwhile, expressed frustration at how the club has moved several players on but has not been quite so active in terms of incomings.

Here is some of the Whites faithful's reaction to Denton's switch to Stevenage:
