Young midfielder Cole Gibbon has signed his first professional contract with Leeds United.

The 18-year-old midfielder had an impressive season last year as a regular in Mark Jackson’s under-18 side, and his form saw him step up into the under-23 team after Christmas.

The announcement on the official Leeds website said that this will result in Gibbon stepping up into the u23 side permanently now. This is an excellent opportunity for him as several u23s are expected to leave on loan and Leeds have accepted their invitation to play their u23 side in the 2020/21 EFL Trophy.

Personally I cannot say much with regards to this deal. I have seen him play but not for long enough to have a fair opinion, I do remember him seeming to be very quick. Have you seen enough of Cole Gibbon to have any strong opinions? Let us know in the comments below or on Twitter @ThruItAllLUFC.
