With non-league side Barnet confirming that Leeds United’s young goalkeeper Will Huffer’s time with them was now over, I thought it would be interesting to take a small trawl of their social media pages to see how the Academy graduate had got on in his month with them.
Having made the switch late on in the January transfer window, although the one month deal may have been extended, he find himself back at Elland Road as cover given the finger injury picked up by Kamil Miazek, as we obviously don’t want Bailey Peacock-Farrell too stretched when it comes to Under 23 football and cover for Kiko Casilla on the first team bench.
The 20-year-old appears to have made three appearances for them according to Soccerbase but some are crediting him with five appearances. Having kept a clean sheet in his last match for them against Sutton United, it appears in his short game time for them, he did seriously impress their fanbase.

If its any consolation we're glad to have you back… Seemed to be a good fit, any reason it can't be extended?

Top keeper, shame we couldn't extend the loan.

Well done mate. Great save tonight & a good loan spell. You are the only keeper in the club's history to avoid defeat in an FA cup 4th round tie!Thanks for your contribution & all the best in your future career. You'll always get a warm welcome from Bees fans if our paths cross!

If any needed further proof we could have another gem on our hands, the above makes great reading as he continues to develop between the sticks.
