Leeds: Whites sign Rory Mahady

Leeds: Whites sign Rory Mahady -Leeds United News

Leeds United have reportedly completed the signing of goalkeeper Rory Mahady from Celtic.

The Lowdown: Busy summer

The Whites brought in a number of players at first-team level over the summer, with a number of coaching changes made at Thorp Arch.

Victor Orta also found time to bolster the club’s academy ranks, with Darko Gyabi and Sonny Perkins two high-profile academy additions from Manchester City and West Ham respectively.

Max McFadden joined from Colchester United and Charlie Crew from Cardiff City, and it looks as if Leeds have now secured the services of another highly-rated teenager.

The Latest: Mahady arrives

Mahady announced on social media that he was leaving Celtic Park, with reports saying after that a move to Elland Road was likely.

LUFC Youth then took to Twitter on Monday evening to share an image of the ‘keeper signing his Leeds contract, stating the teenager has penned a two-year scholarship and will link up with the U18s.

Happy with Leeds' summer business?

Yes, just about!

The Verdict: Exciting coup

Labelled as a ‘rising star’ by Football Insider, Mahady has been regarded as ‘one of the best young keepers in Britain’ and only turned 16 last month.

He was wanted by both Manchester City and Tottenham back in May when Leeds were first linked back in May, so not only has Orta had the Scot on his radar for a while it appears he’s fended off some decent competition for his signature.

It will be interesting to see how the goalkeeper develops over the next two years, and should things go well, you’d expect a professional contract will follow.
