Leeds United fans on Twitter aren't happy about Semi Ajayi's move to West Bromwich Albion.
The Elland Road club are in dire need of a new centre-back to replace Pontus Jansson, who moved to Brentford earlier this month.
There was speculation about a move for the then-Rotherham United defender, who has just signed for West Brom in a £1.5 million deal [The Express & Star].
Leeds only have two weeks to sign a Jansson replacement if he is to start the trip to Bristol City on August 4, and some fans of the West Yorkshire club believe that Victor Orta has missed a trick with Ajayi.
I really dont get it tbh we need a CB and at that price is a steal.— MickZanetti (@ZanettiMick) July 19, 2019
such a big miss from us— mackenzie swift (@lufcmakc) July 19, 2019
Morrison & Ajayi, one gone on a free and one for 1.5m i'd have signed either #lufc— Ryan (@RPlufc93) July 19, 2019
Flint supposedly going to Cardiff for £6m and Ajayi to WBA for around £1.5m - why are not in for them?!#lufc— Jamie (@LUFCjamie1919) July 19, 2019
The worrying thing here is that Leeds aren't being linked with a lot of centre-backs, to the point where you wonder if Orta and Marcelo Bielsa view it as an urgent matter.
Prior to Jansson's departure, United snapped up Ben White on a season-long loan, but he has never kicked a ball at Championship level.
The Whites badly need at least one other central defender to partner Liam Cooper, but the clock is ticking and Ajayi, for £1.5 million, would've been ideal.
