Archie Gray signs professional contract

Youngster pens first deal with the Whites.

Leeds United are delighted to announce Archie Gray has signed his first professional contract with the club.

Gray, who turned 17 last Sunday, has penned a two-and-a-half year-deal to remain at Elland Road until the summer of 2025.

The young midfielder has progressed within the club’s Academy system and put in impressive displays throughout the age groups, including playing for the Under-23s last season at the age of 15.

Gray was also selected in a first-team Premier League squad at the age of 15, being named on the bench against Arsenal at Elland Road in December 2021. He went on to make the bench a further five times in the 2021/22 campaign.

As well as progressing well in the early stages of his club career with Leeds United, Archie has also been a prominent figure throughout the England age groups.

He was captain for the Under-16s when they impressively won the Val-de-Marne tournament in November 2021, overcoming France in the final and is now a regular in the Under-17s, also wearing the armband.

Everyone at Leeds United would like to congratulate Archie on signing his first professional deal and we look forward to his future progress.
