Alex Cairns Signs For Leeds United

Leeds United are pleased to announce the signing of Alex Cairns, who rejoins the club from Salford City in a permanent deal.

The 31-year-old goalkeeper returns to the Whites after coming through the academy at Thorp Arch and then progressing into the first team.

Having played throughout the age groups, the Yorkshire born stopper made his debut for Leeds in the 2011/12 campaign, before leaving to continue his career elsewhere in 2015 after a number of loan moves during that time.

Cairns has signed a two-year contract and he brings a wealth of experience to further bolster and offer competition to a strong group of goalkeepers, having amassed over 300 career league games.

Last season, Cairns made 51 appearances for Salford City, playing in every single league game for The Ammies. He also started in the League Cup tie against Daniel Farke’s side, coming out on top in a penalty shoot-out against his boyhood side.

Alex becomes the second signing of the summer transfer window for the club, following the permanent addition of Welsh international Joe Rodon last week.
