Leeds United have confirmed a first professional contract for youth goalkeeper Harry Christy.

The Whites’ youth setup is ever-growing under Andrea Radrizzani, and we’re seeing plenty of players show their worth to the club at a young age.

Yesterday, Leeds confirmed that 18-year-old centre-back Kris Moore had penned his first professional contract at the club until 2024.

It’s a sign of the club looking to bring in the latest crop of youngsters up to under-23 level in the coming months.

Up next is under-18s’ goalkeeper Harry Christy, who has been rewarded for his performances with his first professional contract too, which runs until the summer of 2024, like Moore’s:

The 18-year-old has made 12 appearances for the under-18s in the Premier League North this term.

It’s another good deal for the club to get tied up.

Christy has been a firm part of the under-18d this season and last, and will be hopeful of making a step up soon.

I suspect that there will be more players to follow this deal, given that we’ve seen two in as many days confirmed for two players of a similar age.

The under-18s are starting to make a real impact on the 23s this season and we’re seeing this in new deals.
