Joe Richards signs professional contract

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

The versatile defender has put pen to paper on a one-year deal, tying his future to Elland Road until 2025.

The 18-year-old featured in every minute of the Whites’ FA Youth Cup journey last season, as Rob Etherington’s side reached the final at the Etihad Stadium.

Capable of playing at full-back or in a more advanced role on the wing, Richards also made a handful of appearances for Scott Gardner’s Under-21s team, scoring against Fulham in just his fourth Premier League 2 outing.

The club would like to congratulate Joe on signing his first professional contract and we look forward to seeing his development at Thorp Arch.
