Late yesterday evening the unexpected but speculated departure of fullback Barry Douglas from Wolverhampton Wanderers to Leeds United was confirmed by both clubs.

The 28-year-old left sided Scottish international moves on an officially undisclosed deal – but the fee has been suggested to be as little as £3million or as high as £5million on the rumour mill as we’ve covered previously.

He played a massive part for us in our Championship title-winning campaign of 2017/18 despite only arriving at this time last summer for a reported £1million.

Having scored five goals in 42 appearances, he also contributed 14 assists as his performances bagged him his maiden international cap for his country.

He’s been wished incredibly well by the club for the part he’s played in our success and he’s assured himself a place in our history. It’s no secret to say that a number of fans were very disappointed when this talk originally surfaced and that was certainly shown by reactions to the confirmation of his move.

  • This smacks of arrogance . Such a massively valued player with a record second to none last season . None of the players at the club has the quality of his dead ball delivery . I do not share this Godlike worship of Nuno . Like all managers he must be subject to criticism and he needs a lot for this .

  • When I heard about this transfer, it made me sick in the stomach. I know how massive Barry was to our sides winning if the championship. I trust Nuno but this manoeuvre is testing that.
