Ian Poveda signs for Leeds United
Winger completes transfer.
Leeds United are delighted to announce the signing of Ian Poveda from Premier League champions Manchester City.
The 19-year-old joins the Whites in a permanent deal and has penned a contract at Elland Road until the summer of 2024.
Poveda has played for a number of clubs throughout his youth career, including the likes of Chelsea, Arsenal, Barcelona and Manchester City.
With the Citizens he has featured regularly for their Academy side and has also played in the Football League Trophy for their Under-21 side over the past two seasons.
He leaves the Etihad Stadium having made one senior appearance, which came in last season’s Carabao Cup semi-final second leg victory against Burton Albion at the Pirelli Stadium.
The winger has also shown plenty of promise on the international stage, having been capped at every youth level by England from Under-16s to Under-20s.
Poveda becomes Leeds’ second signing of the January transfer window, following the arrival of goalkeeper Elia Caprile from Chievo Verona and will wear the number 7 shirt for the Whites.
