Leeds confirm they have agreed a deal with bright prospect

Leeds United fans in the Transfer Tavern will be watching the club’s movements in the transfer market with a keen eye this summer.

The Whites managed to pull off a massive coup with the appointment of Marcelo Bielsa and the locals will be excited to see what he will be able to bring with him to Elland Road.

A number of the residents will be hoping he can convince some huge names to join his revolution of the squad and the club have been linked with a number of players recently who would certainly help improve the squad immediately.

However, according to a report in the Yorkshire Evening Post, the club have looked within themselves to begin with and have managed to extend the contract of one of their talented prospects.

Paudie O’Connor has signed a new two-year deal to remain at Elland Road, following his arrival from Ireland last summer. He is highly regarded by those at Thorp Arch and the Whites appear to have big plans for him in the future, even if it means sending him out on loan for the upcoming season.

Landlord’s Verdict

The decision to offer the 20-year-old a new deal is a smart piece of business by Leeds as they appear to be keen on building their future with the young talented players they already have in their squad.

Going out on loan would suit the defender and the club and the locals in the Tavern will be hoping he can excel and will be a great addition to the back when he returns to Elland Road in the future.
