Leeds signed a new goalkeeper, but it’s not exactly what you think.
Leeds United have signed 19 year-old youth team goalkeeper Will Huffer to a professional contract that runs until next summer, with an option to extend the contract another 12 months after that.
Leeds have a number of Academy goalkeepers at the club, with Bailey Peacock-Farrell and Kamil Miazek both already on the books. Peacock-Farrell is surely set for a loan move in January, with the club already sending him out to non-League York City for a month to get some playing time.
The short contract would seem to suggest that the club either wants him to prove himself or wants to see the player go out on loan to get some experience. Don’t be surprised to see Huffer go out on loan to a League 2 club or move on to a different club in January.
