The 18-year-old joins the Whites for a fee of around £5m and has put pen to paper on a four-year deal, running until the summer of 2026.

Gyabi is a highly-rated 18-year-old who joined City from Millwall and played a part in last season's Premier League 2 title triumph for the young Citizens.

Leeds believe they are getting a player who will fight for first team squad involvement this season, although the midfielder is expected to feature for the Under 21s in the PL2 second tier
