Confirmed: Leeds terminate defender deal
Leeds United have today confirmed that academy product Tyler Denton has returned to Elland Road following his loan spell at League Two outfit Port Vale.
The diverse 22-year-old, who can play at left-back and in a more advanced role, has rejoined the Whites’ and although there is some ambiguity as to why the loan was cut short, the club have stated it is due to ‘Family reasons’.
The news was announced on the official Leeds Twitter page.

Denton will get back with Leeds’ first team later on this week, and will be welcomed by first team boss Thomas Christiansen following a busy Christmas schedule.
The young English talent impressed on his loan spell, amassing 21 appearances for Vale, in the League and in Cup competitions, and he only conceded one booking during that time.
The timing couldn’t be better for Denton, as Leeds have struggled at the let-back position thus far this season, so Christiansen may be keen to have a look at him.
The only issue is that the defender has already represented Port Vale in the FA Cup, so will not be elligible for selection by the Whites as they prepare to continue their Cup campaign.
In other Leeds United transfer news, Christiansen is keen to resign a Gary Monk castaway this January, with Villa also interested.
