What was this tweet all about?

Sporting Clube de Portugal “reminded” Leeds that when wishing a team “Happy Holidays” to address them as Sporting CP, not Sporting Lisbon... but why would the club be wishing them happy holidays?

Doesn’t make a whole lot of sense, although I think we might get clarification in the morning. Or not. Who knows.

Does this have anything to do with transfer rumours? After all the “young centre-back” is rumoured to be referring to a Sporting player, Tobias Figueiredo, who was linked in the Portuguese press with a move to Leeds, but it remains unclear if that’s what the tweet is all about, or if there is something else. The club did sign Hadi Sacko from Sporting after all.

Anyway, on to the links.
