Leeds fans show their support prior to the Sky Bet Championship Play-off semi final second leg match between Leeds United and Derby County at Elland Road on May 15, 2019 in Leeds, England.

Leeds United fans are reacting on social media after one of their academy players confirmed he's signed for Sheffield United.

Leak-Blunt appeared on trial for Sheffield United last month and was rumoured to have left Leeds already.

That is despite having signed a new three-year deal with the Whites as recently as last summer.

 

But posting on both Twitter and Instagram yesterday (Wednesday) Leak-Blunt finally clarified his situation.

"Delighted to have signed for @SheffieldUnited(,)" he wrote. "(L)ooking forward to the challenge ahead!"

And this is what the Leeds faithful have had to say about Leak-Blunt's announcement.
