Leeds United fans react to Mikkel Damsgaard transfer link


Leeds United fans have taken to Twitter to express their reaction to reports linking the club with a move for Danish star Mikkel Damsgaard.

The Whites have been looking to sign a central midfielder this summer, while Marcelo Bielsa could also bolster his attacking areas.

Chelsea’s Conor Gallagher has been linked with a move, and it seems the Whites have now earmarked Damsgaard, who is also attracting interest from Tottenham Hotspur.

According to reports via Il Bianconero, the Yorkshire club have shown interest in signing the 21-year-old.

The Sampdoria midfielder did reasonably well last season for the Italian club, but his stock rose following his outstanding displays in European Championships this summer.

Damsgaard got a lucky break into the side following Christian Eriksen’s collapse and grabbed the opportunity with both hands.

He stamped his authority on the tournament, scoring a spectacular free-kick against England.

Sampdoria want more than €30 million (£25.6m) to sanction his sale, and they are unlikely to lower their valuation.

Many Leeds fans feel that Damsgaard would be a quality addition to the club. Here are some of the selected tweets:



Damsgaard gives the impression of a type of player who is ideally suited for the Premier League, and joining Leeds could be a smart move.

Bielsa has a strong track record for developing young talent, and Damsgaard would have the opportunity to take his game to the next level under a world-class manager.
