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.

Leak-Blunt, whose father Jason coached at Leeds until 2017, is the latest trialist to have earned a permanent contract at Bramall Lane this season.
Sheffield United recently snapped up Kamarl Grant from the Kinetic Academy, in addition to Tashae Andall-Gibbons and Iliman Ndiaye from Rising Ballers.
The quartet's Blades manager is the former Leeds midfielder, Andrew Hughes.
Hughes moved to the Premier League side in August after spells at Bolton Wanderers, Crystal Palace and Huddersfield Town.
