Leeds United have completed another deal for an exciting young player, as Charlie Allen signs from Linfield on a three-year deal.

The 16-year old was Linfield’s youngest ever debutant at the age of 15, and has massively impressed, drawing the attention of numerous clubs around the country.

The Northern Irishman has five under-17 caps under his belt, scoring one goal, while making three appearances in the Irish Premiership last season. Allen will initially play for The Whites’ under-18s.

Leeds look to continue their mini-transfer policy for young talent, with Cody Drameh due for talks this week.
