Some Leeds United fans on social media have been reacting after hearing reports that Oliver Casey could be on his way to Blackpool this summer.
Blackpool have just been promoted from League One and are looking to bolster their squad ahead of a Championship campaign, and one man they have their eye on is Leeds’ Casey.
Casey is undoubtedly a talented player, he had a starring role in the Whites’ U23s’ triumph in the PL2 this season, so it’s no surprise to hear that Blackpool want him.
Understandably, these rumours have sparked something of a reaction amongst the fanbase, and it’s fair to say that Leeds fans don’t want to see him leave, at least not on a permanent deal.
Casey seems like a prospect, so letting him go permanently could prove to be a mistake, and while he hasn’t broken into the first-team yet, he still has a lot of room to grow.
One fan even compared him to former Whites loanee Ben White, who didn’t break into the Brighton side until he was given a chance to star out on loan at Leeds, and many Whites supporters believe he should be given the same treatment.
Here’s what the Elland Road faithful have been saying on social media…
Surely a loan would be the best thing. I know we have decent cb options at the min but look at ben white.

Looks like a very good prospect indeed, but does have a lot of competition at #lufc, not just from the first team guys but from Cresswell too. Can’t stand in the lad’s way.
I’d make sure we have lots of clauses though, including a buy-back option.

Looked really good last year alongside Creswell loan yes permanent is a no IMO. Definitely two for the future

Surely a loan move would be better. Struijk coming through shows there’s a pathway if he’s patient (& good enough).
