Flint was linked with a move to Leeds United while still a Bristol City player.
Leeds United fans are reacting to reports that Cardiff City could be about to sign Aden Flint from Middlesbrough.
According to the Northern Echo, Flint is due to undergo a medical at Cardiff ahead of a £4 million move, which could rise to £6m with add-ons.
The centre-back was linked with Leeds while still a Bristol City player and could have helped to fill the void recently created by Pontus Jansson's sale to Brentford.
Leeds are said to have received a similar fee for Jansson, and several of a Whites persuasion cannot believe their side have, seemingly, failed to make an approach of their own.
Aden Flint is one of if not the most Neil Warnock signing you could find. Always rated Flint and wanted him at Leeds. Very good move from Cardiff.— Olly Wood (@Olly_Wood21) July 18, 2019
Just seen that Aden Flint is close to joining Cardiff, why can't Leeds show some ambition and have made a bid for him? Would have been a very good signing and surely strengthened the defence #lufc #mot— Ryan (@LeedsUtdRyan) July 18, 2019
Cardiff set to sign Flint from Boro for £6m. Leeds sold Jansson to Brentford for £5.5m. which begs the question why Leeds haven't gone in for him?! He knows the league, scores goals, etc. Common counterpoint prevails - doesn't fit in Bielsa's system, or does he? #lufc https://t.co/jDHgg556wC— Chris (@ItsChristian_) July 18, 2019
Flint to Cardiff for £6mil, would have been perfect for us #lufc— Kieran Sheppard (@KieranSheppard) July 18, 2019
I'm hearing Boro are selling Flint to Cardiff for 4m. Ffs. We need a CB! #lufc— Frainy_180 (@frainy_180) July 18, 2019
Others, though, believe that, for all of his defensive qualities, Flint would not be well-suited to Marcelo Bielsa's system.
Flint isn’t a ball playing centre half and that’s why Boro are selling. What makes you think Bielsa would want him? This bloody fan base. #LUFC— Dirty Leeds (@Dirty_Leeds94) July 18, 2019
Leeds have already added one new centre-back, in the shape of Ben White, this summer.
And it remains to be seen whether or not Bielsa will seek to add to his options in the final three weeks of the window.
Would Flint have been a good addition for Leeds?
