Leeds United are pleased to announce Charlie Allen has signed his first professional contract with the club.

Allen joined the Whites Academy back in August, after moving from Northern Irish outfit Linfield for an undisclosed fee, where he was their youngest ever debutant at the age of 15.

Now having turned 17, Allen has put pen to paper on a two-and-a-half-year deal at Elland Road, running until the summer of 2023.

Speaking about the deal, Allen said: “I’m really pleased, as a young kid you always dream of signing a professional contract.

“It’s my first one, I’ve got it and hopefully it’s the first of many, now it’s time to kick on with my career.

“I’ve really enjoyed my time at the club so far, playing regularly with the Under-18s every week and being around the Under-23s and first team, you see what they do every day and it’s good to watch and be involved in.

“I feel like my game has evolved over the few months I have been here, I just want to keep getting as many minutes as I can, hopefully play for the Under-23s and of course the ultimate goal is to play first team football.”
