Leeds United midfielder Alfie McCalmont is expected to sign a new contract at Elland Road in the next week, according to a report in the Yorkshire Evening Post.

The 20-year-old made his debut for Leeds as a substitute in the 3-0 win over Salford City in the Carabao Cup, and made his first start against Stoke City in the same competition a few weeks later.

McCalmont had been a regular in Leeds’ u23 side, and was impressive enough to be around the Leeds first team. He also gained his first senior cap for Northern Ireland, coming on as a substitute against Luxembourg following good performances for their u21 side.

McCalmont has one-year left on his current deal, but it is expected he will sign a new three-year deal. He could then head out on loan, as could fellow youngsters Ryan Edmondson and Robbie Gotts. Mateusz Bogusz recently gave an interview is his native Poland stating that he would sign a new deal at Leeds before heading out on loan.

I wouldn’t be shocked if a couple of Leeds’ youngsters went to Huddersfield Town - as new manager Carlos Corberan has worked with the players as Leeds’ u23 manager.
