Promising youngster joins Leeds.
Leeds United are pleased to announce the signing of promising full-back Leif Davis from Sky Bet League Two side Morecambe.
Davis joins the club for an undisclosed fee and has signed a three year contract at Elland Road, which runs until the summer of 2021.
The 18-year-old who has impressed at youth level for the Shrimps, will initially link up with Carlos Corberan’s Under-23 side for the 2018/19 campaign.
He becomes the latest talented young player to sign for the club, following the arrivals of Sam Dalby, Ryan Edmondson and Jordan Stevens throughout the last campaign.
Speaking about the move Davis said: “I’m absolutely buzzing to sign, it is a privilege to be here and I can’t wait to get started.
“It was a great experience to be at a professional club in Morecambe and it has been a stepping stone to get to where I am now, it shows if you put the hard work in, you can get the rewards.
“I was a two year scholar at Morecambe and whilst I didn’t make my debut, I was training with the first team week in week out.
“I’m a modern day attacking left back and I love getting forwards, my aim is to play in the first team one day and hopefully I can do well here and progress.
“Playing with better players makes you a better player, the facilities at Thorp Arch are amazing and I can’t wait for the season to get underway.”
