Have your say

Leeds United have agreed a new deal with development squad captain Alex Purver.

The 19-year-old midfielder will take up a one-year contract when he returns for pre-season later this month.

Purver was a regular in United’s Under-21 side this season and he travelled with the senior squad to their game at Birmingham City in September.

He is part of a larger group of academy players who were offered new deals by Leeds three weeks ago.

Centre-back Jake Skelton, striker Luke Parkin and left-back Tyler Denton have also agreed new one-year contracts.
