I’ve honestly started to lose track of all these.
Not only have we been blessed with some signings for the first team in recent weeks; like Kalvin Phillips, Stuart Dallas and Liam Cooper, but it looks as if the kids in the academy are going to be with us for a long time to come as well.
The club announced yesterday that Bryce Hosannah, Pascal Struijk and Kun Temenuzhkov have all signed new deals at Elland Road. In addition, Charlie Cresswell and Stuart McKinstry have signed their first professional contracts at the club.
Now it’s hard to say just how long it will take for each of these guys to make their way into the first team. However given the way Marcelo Biela has shown faith with young players in the past, in particular the likes of Jack Clarke who made 25 appearances for the Whites last season in all competitions, or Jamie Shackleton who has made 30 appearances since he took over, it’s certainly not out of the realms of possibility that we can see them make an impact this season.
When the Leeds fans heard the news, they seemed to take it rather well.
Struijk and Cresswell our future CH pairing 🙂
