Many Leeds fans are desperate for a new defensive addition after the club allowed Pontus Jansson to leave for Brentford, and now there is the belief they have missed out on a possible replacement.

There may be consolation for some fans however, as Aston Villa’s James Chester has been linked with the club in recent days in a potential £7.5m deal.
Ajayi impressed last season in a struggling Rotherham side. He played in every one of their Championship games last season and proved his quality in breaking up play, whilst also contributing an impressive seven league goals.
He is only 25 too and improving season after season, and for just £1.5m he could be a great bargain, so it is unsurprising that Leeds fans feel they have missed out.
Here is some of the reaction from Leeds fans to the news that Ajayi is West Brom bound.
Should’ve been all over that – ridiculous!

I will for the death of me never understand Leeds doing business. Berardi, for all the goodness and passion, is not good enough. Cooper is the best we have and his stats are good, but still a big liability for important decisions. I’m really frustrated about the defensive aspect

Leeds should be doing this deal and ensuring we have cover and replacing Pontus

Why the hell weren’t we in there. Would be a great signing and bargain at that price. Pull your finger out Orta and Radz. Plus Llorente is still a free agent. Heard his wage demands aren’t even high.

£1.5m is a very good deal same price as Doukara or Pawel Cibicki.
