We round up what Leeds United fans are discussing on social media.

@Max_LUFC. This Ideguchi deal is great. We are signing him now so when he plays in the world cup his value could soar up as he is in the spotlight, and we would have had a steal of a deal if he performs well.

@Michael_Sells. Big fan of this from Ideguchi: ‘Some have said that it is better to wait until after the World Cup. But I want to go my own way and go as soon as possible.’ #lufc.

@leed5leed5leed5. That Ideguchi has been touted as the next big thing in East Asian football. And we go and sign him up for 500k! Amazing business by our board again imo. Will get that fee back in no time! Stock in more shirts @LUFC the Japanese are coming. #LUFC.

@BennyTaylsLUFC. Quite an interesting signing the little I’ve read up on him looks a shrewd little signing not only on pitch but off it too (commercially) he has had relatively impressive 18mths or so both domestically/internationally not breaking the bank either win win imho #LUFC @PhilHayYEP.

@FocusOnTheFooty. Will make the money back easily, big market over in Asia and this will help us dip into it commercial wise. #LUFC.

@gbell93. Many championship teams have good keepers. I don’t understand why @andrearadri thinks we should be happy with a keeper who can’t do the basics right? Or he doesn’t want to admit we have made some poor signings in the summer? #lufc.
