Leeds: Whites sign youngster Charlie Crew

Leeds: Whites sign youngster Charlie Crew -Leeds United News

Leeds United have reportedly signed teenage midfielder Charlie Crew from Cardiff City.

The Lowdown: Busy summer

The Whites have been proactive this summer both on and off the pitch, with six new first-team players brought in so far.

Rene Maric has joined as Jesse Marsch’s assistant, Ewan Sharp and Pierre Barrieu have arrived as first-team staff additions and Michael Skubala has taken over as under-21 head coach.

Skubala will work with academy signings Darko Gyabi and Sonny Perkins, and it looks as if another youth addition has been made by Elland Road officials.

The Latest: Leeds move for Crew

According to LUFC Youth on Twitter, the Whites have brought in 16-year-old Crew on a two-year scholarship deal.

The midfielder is set to initially link up with the under-18s at Thorp Arch.

The Verdict: Exciting signing

Crew is primarily a defensive midfielder but can also play as a centre-back and was labelled as a ‘real standout’ player at his age level by Wales Online.

He has been described as a player with an excellent range of passing and is technically unrivalled with the ball at his feet, so it looks as if Leeds may have landed a future star.

Where will Leeds finish this season?
