Fans of Leeds United - and other clubs - are saying positive things about the Whites' latest recruit.

Until then of Middlesbrough, Andy Foster confirmed his appointment as head of academy coaching at Leeds on Wednesday.

 

It had previously been reported that Foster would be taking on the role vacated by the former Leeds striker, Richard Cresswell, earlier this year.

And in a tweet congratulating him on his move, he wrote:

This is what has been made of Foster's move on Twitter... 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

According to his Linkedin page, which he has yet to update, Foster has spent the past two-and-a-half-years doing the same job for Middlesbrough.

His arrival there coincided with Victor Orta's exit as Middlesbrough's director of football, with the Spaniard joining Leeds shortly afterwards.

Before Boro, Foster worked for the Football Association as a national coach developer.

He is already being followed on Twitter by the Leeds Under-23-team coach, Darren Arnott.

The Whites' U23s are the reigning Professional Development League national champions - a feat their U18s achieved the previous year.
