Supporters are furious with Crewe's transfer tease and the announcement that followed

Well that wasn't quite what the account's followers were expecting.

Crewe Alexandra fans were anticipating a lunchtime treat on Thursday afternoon, as the club's official Twitter account teased "some major January Transfer news."

Supporters' minds went into overdrive, wondering what kind of coup the board had pulled off and which incredible addition was going to arrive at Gresty Road to guarantee the side's safety in League Two.

13 minutes of giddy excitement followed but all hope was dashed in stunning style when the official announcement arrived.

The news was that one of the club's best players, George Cooper, was leaving the club after a deal had been agreed with Peterborough United.

Cooper has been a mainstay for the Railwaymen this season and is the leading assist-maker in the division thus far, having set up nine goals already in this campaign.

It wasn't quite the announcement that fans were expecting and while it's understandable for clubs to announce the departure of players, the decision to tease the news inspired exactly the kind of reaction you'd imagine.
