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.
