18-year-old midfielder Ollie Hotchkiss has signed his first professional contract with Leeds.

The reserve regular has signed a two and a half year contract, much to his delight as he told leedsunited.com: “I’m over the moon, this is a fantastic club and I’m delighted to get my first professional contract here.

“I work hard, and I’m going to keep my head down, and hopefully I’ll get my rewards.”

Having played some part in the reserves last season this time round sees him a regular fixture, and he is also playing some under-18 matches. The reserves gives him a chance to play along side some of the first team members, something which he also enjoys and feels benefits him.

His aims now are to now push on even further with the reserves, but he also hopes to get some involvement with the first team as well, even if it is only during training, he added: “My first hope is to become a regular in the reserves.

“After that I hope I get a chance to be involved with the first team in terms of training with them and learning from them.”
