LUFC Youngsters show commitment to Leeds

Whilst it is all quiet at Elland Road with both the possible takeover and new signings, the clubs youngsters are continuing to commit their future to the club.

Defender Ross Killock and striker Dominic Poleon are the latest players from the Leeds United academy to sign professional contracts with the club.

Both players have signed one-year deals with the club and they join Simon Lenighan, Sam Byram and Charlie Clamp in signing their first professional deals with the club.

All five players were regulars for the under 18`s last season when they finished second in their Premier League Academy Division behind Newcastle United after losing just one of their fourteen games in 2012.

19 year old Twins Nathan and Lewis Turner have signed new one-year deals after signing their first professional contracts last summer.

The pair are still waiting to make their competitive first team debuts for the club, although Lewis was an unused substitute in the Carling Cup win at Doncaster Rovers last August.

Highly regarding Monty Gimpel will commit his future to the club when he signs his first professional contract at the start of July.

The clubs academy system seems to be heading in the right direction again after some lean years that have seen few youngsters come through to make it in the first team.

Last season, Tom Lees, Alex Cairns, Charlie Taylor and Zac Thompson all made the breakthrough into the first team, with Lees and Thompson both rewarded with improved deals this summer. Goalkeeper Cairns also signed a new two-year deal in January and Taylor still as two years remaining on his current deal.

Can see most of the new pro's going out on loan next season. Then again with the lack of signings, they might all be starting on the opening day.

Not a bad idea,remembering DRs team in early days there were lot of youngsters in those times. Recently you can say that of DOLs babies were also in almost infant years (as a footballers). Holland EURO 2012 team has youngest player in the games hardly 18 yrs. old. Tare My view is that we have to start use these academy products sooner rather than later
Tare
Good news for all the fans as theres been precious little recently
Tiny T
Think they will be starting on opening day !! but then again the summers not over yet....
fleckstar
I'm of the same opinion as Tare lets get some these youngsters blooded in the first team squad ASAP. Young, hungry & quick on their toes.
