Irish defender Conor Shaughnessy is one of the latest young players to break through into the first team from the famous Leeds United Academy.

Shaughnessy travelled regularly with the first team during the 2016/17 season, making the bench on a number of occasions throughout the campaign and he made his debut in United’s first game of the 2017/18 campaign, coming on as a substitute in the 3-2 victory over Bolton Wanderers.

The young centre-back has firmly established himself in new head coach Thomas Christiansen’s first team plans and it promises to be an exciting year for Shaughnessy, after he penned a new four year contract.
