Young Leeds United defender Bryce Hosannah has signed a new contract with the club.

Hosannah has signed a new deal until the summer of 2020 after impressing for the Leeds United development squad this season.

The 19-year-old joined Leeds on a one-year deal last summer from Premier League side Crystal Palace after being a regular in the youth team at Selhurst Park.

Hosannah has been a regular in the under-23 side this season and he has made 24 appearances, scoring twice for Carlos Corberan’s side

After a slow start under Corberan, Leeds enjoyed an impressive second half of the season, finishing the season with a 3-0 win at Bristol City last month.

Hosannah is the latest youngster to commit his future to Leeds and he will hope to follow fellow youngsters Bailey Peacock-Farrell, Paudie O’Connor and Tom Pearce into the Leeds first team.

 All three have impressed in the final month of the season after being given a first-team opportunity by head coach Paul Heckingbottom.

Pearce is also out of contract this summer along with a number of fellow youngsters at Elland Road.

Whilst every senior professional at Leeds is in contract past this summer, youngsters Romario Vieira, Kamil Miazek, Oriol Rey, Matty Downing, Clarke Odour, Tom Godden and Will Huffer are all out of contract this summer.

Leeds will announce their released and retained list this month at the conclusion of the SkyBet Championship season on Sunday.
