Leeds United fans react on Twitter after Luke Murphy’s contract terminated

Leeds United confirmed on Wednesday that they have agreed to terminate the contract of midfielder Luke Murphy.

The 28-year-old has joined the mass exodus from Leeds United and his departure takes the number of outgoing transfers from Elland Road to 13.

The Whites also confirmed the departure of Ronaldo Vieira who sealed a permanent switch to Sampdoria on Wednesday.

Murphy, who made 111 appearances for the club, was a high-profile signing when he was signed in the summer of 2013 from Crewe Alexandra. He scored a last-minute winner on his debut in Leeds’s 2-1 victory over Brighton.

However, over the last two seasons, he has been a forgotten man at the club, with his last appearance for Leeds coming in May 2016. He spent most of the time on loan with Burton Albion in the Championship.

He was under contract until next summer but now the club has terminated his contract on mutual consent.

Some Leeds fans took to social networking site Twitter to express their reaction after the news broke out.
