Darko Gyabi completes Leeds United transfer

Young midfielder signs for the Whites.

Leeds United are pleased to announce the arrival of Darko Gyabi.

The 18-year-old has put pen-to-paper on a four-year deal at Elland Road, running until the summer of 2026.

Gyabi joins the Whites from fellow Premier League side Manchester City for an undisclosed fee.

The central midfielder moved to the Etihad Stadium after catching the eye for Millwall’s Academy back in 2018.

He went on to play a key role in helping Manchester City’s Under-18s win the Premier League North title in the 2020/21 campaign.

Last season, Gyabi stepped up to Under-23s football and played 10 games in Premier League 2, Division 1, providing three assists and scoring one goal, to help Manchester City become champions.

Gyabi has also won 12 caps for England at youth level, spread across call ups for the Under-15s, Under-16s and Under-18s.

The youngster becomes the club’s fourth signing of the summer, following the arrivals of Brenden Aaronson, Rasmus Kristensen and Marc Roca.
