Paudie O’Connor has taken to social networking site Twitter to express his reaction after securing a loan switch from Leeds United.

The Whites defender has joined League One side Blackpool on a season-long loan deal, and the move was confirmed by the Yorkshire club.

The 20-year-old signed a new two-year contract at the club last week before making the loan switch. He is a highly rated young talent and will join Gary Bowyer’s side for the 2018-19 campaign in a bid to gain first-team experience.

The youngster has made three senior appearances for the Whites so far having made his debut against Sunderland in April .

The Irishman joined United last summer and was handed the armband for Carlos Corberan’s under-23s side.

After impressing for both the development and senior team O’Connor will now be looking to make a strong impact in League One in a bid to continue his first-team football experience.

O’Connor becomes the latest player to have joined the long list of exits from Leeds United after fellow defender Tyler Denton joined Peterborough United on loan for the season.

Here are some of the best reactions from the Leeds fans on Twitter:
