The Lowdown: Dean at Leeds
Dean, capable of playing anywhere across the front three, signed a first professional deal at Elland Road last year. The 18-year-old has made a total of 44 appearances for the club’s academy sides – 31 of which have come for the U23s.
The attacker has contributed to a total of 17 goals and has mainly played as a centre-forward, and it looks as if he could be given the chance to play senior football in 2022/23.
The Latest: Pope’s post
Reliable reporter Pope took to Twitter on Monday evening to provide some more exit rumours.
He claimed that Harrogate are ‘understood to be interested in a loan deal’ for Dean, although nothing has been confirmed as of yet.
The Verdict: Makes sense?
Dean is entering the final 12 months of his Elland Road contract, so a new deal and a loan move away could be a wise move for everyone involved.
How many more signings do Leeds need after Aaronson, Kristensen and Roca?
He has become a regular for the U23s despite only turning 18 in February, so gaining senior experience in League Two could be just what he needs for his development.
