Tom Pearce has taken to Twitter to send a message to Leeds United after joining Wigan Athletic on transfer deadline day.

The 21-year-old, who can operate as a left-back or as a left wing-back, has taken to Twitter to send an emotional message to the West Yorkshire outfit.

Leeds United exit

Pearce is a very good and promising young left-back, and the 21-year-old will hope that he gets the playing time that he did not at Leeds.

The youngster is far from the finished article, and if he gets regular playing time at Wigan, then he will progress and develop as a footballer.

As for Leeds, they are not going to miss Pearce, as they already have enough good players in his position.

The Whites won against Bristol City in the Championship last weekend, as they aim to challenge for a top-two finish in the league table and clinch automatic promotion to the Premier League.
