‘He’ll probably never play’, ‘What’s the point anymore?’ – Plenty of Wigan Athletic fans react to Leeds United breakthrough

Wigan Athletic may be gearing up for an exciting new season but they’ll be doing so without one of their most talented prospects.

Thursday morning saw Leeds United confirm the signing of Sean McGurk after he penned a three-year contract at Elland Road after joining the club for an undisclosed fee.

The 18-year-old joined the Latics at under-14 level and went on to enjoy an excellent few years with the club after progressing into Wigan’s under-18s and under-23s side over the course of the last campaign.

However with a move to the Premier League on the table, it was always going to be a tough opportunity to turn down.

Wigan have agreed a compensation fee for the attacking midfielder, but that won’t be enough to appease some supporters who have taken to social media to react to the news.

Here’s what a selection of Wigan supporters have had to say about Sean McGurk’s move to Leeds United.
