Sutcliffe and Carole featured occasionally for the Under-23 side last season as a raft of injuries to first-team players and more experienced youngsters provided opportunities for the full-back and winger, respectively.

Striker Luca Thomas netted 15 times in 17 appearances during Leeds’ Under-18 Premier League North campaign last term, while Cuba Diboe arrived from Liverpool the season before last, scoring once last season for the same Under-18 side.

It is expected all five players will feature for the Under-21 side in some capacity this season as the young Whites compete on three fronts: Premier League 2, Papa John’s Trophy and Premier League Cup.

17-year-old Keenan Carole is son of former United player Sebastien, who featured 46 times in the league between 2006 and 2008.

Gyabi cost £5 million from United’s Premier League counterparts.
