Leeds United loanee Tyler Denton announced himself at his new club Peterborough United in emphatic fashion.

Denton, who joined Posh on a season-long loan last week, opened the scoring in the 4-2 victory over Bedford Town on Saturday with an impressive strike.

The 22-year-old has found first-team action hard to come by at Elland Road appearing just three times at senior level but Whites fans may also remember he notched a memorable goal against Luton Town in the League Cup on his United debut also.

Denton will spend the 2018-19 campaign with Steve Evans' side in a bid to gain more senior experience with the left-back believing it to be a great opportunity for himself.

He told the Posh website: "I had a discussion with Leeds in the summer and we both felt it was the right time to try and get a long-term loan deal and play some first team football.

“I was only young when Steve and Paul were at Leeds, but their record speaks for itself and I cannot wait to get started here with Peterborough. I am feeling fit, I have been training with the under 23s at Leeds and now it is about playing pre-season games. I am a full-back who likes to get forward and support the attack, but more importantly, it is about stopping crosses and defending well.”
