Leeds United fans are something else.
Victor Orta can’t sneeze without Leeds fans knowing about it and he certainly can’t go anywhere near an airport without being papped. No matter what time he’s there.
One Leeds fan was up and about early and spotted Orta at Manchester airport at 5am on Friday morning.
The photos were put on Twitter and quickly seized on by fans who think that it could signify yet more transfer activity after Diego Llorente signed for Leeds on Thursday.
One fan said, “Last time he was spotted there a few days later he signed Rodrigo. Loves the 6am flights to avoid being spotted!”
Another appropriated the infamous Leeds tweet from 2014, tweeting, “Don’t go to bed just yet”.
And even Hay got in the act today, retweeting one of the Orta images from Manchester airport.
Some fans speculated about where he was going and hoped it was Venice – an airport close to the club of Rodrigo De Paul.
One fan said he was off to Amsterdam and that’s a hub for connecting flights across Europe.
However, it’s also close to AZ Alkmaar, with Leeds now linked with a move to their club captain Teun Koopmeiners. [Telegraph]
This would tally up with the report from Mike McGrath who is a very solid source of transfer information.
Here are the best reactions to Orta’s latest movements…
Last time he was spotted there a few days later he signed Rodrigo.

Orta flying out to Venice, via Amsterdam.
Then onto Udine to bring our man Rodrigo de Paul home.
