Leeds United fans on Twitter have had differing reactions to the news that Oliver Sarkic has joined Burton Albion on a permanent deal.

The attacker joined Leeds in January 2018 from European giants Benfica, and he was then loaned out to Spanish club Barakaldo CF for the 2018/29 season.

He didn’t show much potential during his loan spell. He scored just once in 12 games in the Spanish third tier last term, and at the age of 22, it seems unlikely that he was ever going to make it at Elland Road.

His scoring record throughout the rest of his career hasn’t been fantastic either. He netted just five goals in 43 appearances for Benfica B.

Despite the lack of promise he has shown throughout his time as a Leeds player, fans still found a way to complain about this sale.

Supporters seem fed up with the continuous stream of footballers departing Elland Road as a number of youth and first-team players have moved on this summer.

Some of the higher-profile names to have left include Pontus Jansson and Mallik Wilks, but United have also seen academy players such as Hugo Diaz leave the club.

Others have found it tough to care about this news as Sarkic never played a game for the Yorkshire outfit.

One supporter also claimed that people were just looking for any excuse to complain about Andrea Radrizzani.
