Plenty of Leeds United fans have reacted to the latest performance of Che Adams for Southampton, a player the Whites were linked with in January.

Adams has made a fast start to the season for the Saints, who moved top of the Premier League table on Friday with a 2-0 win over Newcastle United.

The 24-year-old bagged the opener against Steve Bruce’s side and now has three goals and two assists so far this season (via WhoScored).

Leeds were strongly linked with him in January and Marcelo Bielsa is said to be an admirer of the former Birmingham City and Sheffield United forward.

Patrick Bamford came in for plenty of criticism last season for his lack of clinical finishing, but the former Chelsea man has started Leeds’ Premier League campaign with seven goals in eight appearances.

However, some fans have continued keeping an eye on Adams and feel he could still prove an upgrade on Bamford.

One said that the Southampton man was a pit bull, with another praising Bielsa for spotting the potential Adams had.

Here are some of the best Tweets from Leeds fans.
