Leeds United confirm deal for talented central midfielder

Leeds United fans in the Transfer Tavern will be wanting the side to add quality, whilst also losing a number of deadweights this summer as they look to improve on this season’s poor display.

In what will be Paul Heckingbottom’s first transfer window as manager at the Whites, a number of the locals will be hoping he will be given the resources and backing to make signings that will help them to compete for a place in the Premier League.

The club, however, have already tied down the future of one of their rising stars, having announced on the Leeds’ official Twitter page that Oriol Rey Erenas has committed his future to Elland Road for a further two years.

The 20-year-old joined from Barcelona last summer and has been a regular for the Whites’ Developmental side, having made 30 appearances and scoring twice. The midfielder is thought of highly at the club and could be in the mix for first-team football next season.

Landlord’s Verdict

The Leeds fans in the Tavern will be delighted that they have managed to tie down another academy player to a new deal, having witnessed a number of them play for the first-team last season and will be hoping for good things from the former Barcelona graduate.

However, a number of the locals in the bar will be expecting the Whites to push on with their transfer business this summer and find suitable players that can go straight into the senior side and make an impact from the beginning.
