‘We’ll never learn’, ‘Best thing for him’ – These Leeds fans react as player makes League One switch

Leeds United’s Lewie Coyle has made a permanent move to League One promotion hopefuls Fleetwood Town today, as reported by their official site.

Leeds had previously put a price of £500,000 on the right back’s head, but he moves for an undisclosed fee to The Highbury Stadium to help Joey Barton’s side in their quest for a spot in the Championship.

His contract with the Whites was running out in the summer and despite alleged interest from Sunderland, he opted to move to the club he spent the last two season on loan with.

The 24-year-old came through the Leeds Academy, breaking into the first team in 2015. In total, he went on to make 23 appearances for the club, with his last coming on the final day of the 2016/17 season against Wigan Athletic.

He was once involved in a tapping-up scandal when it was reported Chelsea offered his Dad significant sums of money to tempt him to Stamford Bridge, although he remained at Elland Road.

Leeds fans were quick to wish him well in the next stage of his journey, although some felt selling off a young player, albeit one with little exposure to the first team, is not a good idea.
