‘Not Good Enough, Let Him Go’ ‘Good Riddance’ Fans React As Promising Chelsea Star Heads For Exit Door

Chelsea midfielder Lewis Bate is expected to complete a move to Leeds by the end of the week, according to reports in the English media.

The 18-year-old had one year left on his contract at Stamford Bridge and was unwilling to sign an extension to his current deal as he felt that there was no clear pathway to first-team football.

Most fans on Twitter are not particularly happy about the news that Bate is set to be sold, although some did wish him well at his next club:

Bate was also being pursued by the likes of Liverpool, Leicester, West Ham, Southampton and Brighton but it appears he has chosen Leeds to work under the guidance of coach Marcelo Bielsa.

Bate’s departure will be disappointing as, while not every youth player goes on to have a successful career after leaving Chelsea, he was someone that many at the club had high hopes for.
