Leeds United are pleased to announce defender Paudie O’Connor has signed a new contract with the club.
The 20-year-old has put pen to paper on a new two year deal, running until the summer of 2020 and the club holds an option to extend this by a further 12 months.
O’Connor joined the club from Irish side Limerick in 2017 and he went on to captain the Under-23 side.
His impressive performances for Carlos Corberan’s Under-23 side last term led to a senior debut in April 2018 against Sunderland.
He went on to make three further first team appearances during the 2017/18 campaign against Preston North End, Aston Villa and Barnsley.
Director of Football Victor Orta said, “We are really pleased to see Paudie sign a new deal at the club, he has huge potential and we hope he will be a key player for Leeds United for many years to come, not only is he a good footballer, he also has the desire and attitude needed to take him to the top. Paudie is keen to play games, as every hungry young footballer should, so we will now look to send him out on loan for the forthcoming season.”
