Tyler Denton has arrived at Stevenage to complete a free transfer from Leeds United, Football Insider has learned.
Football Insider revealed this morning that the left-back had agreed a move to the League Two outfit after United gave the green light for him to leave for free despite having a year to run on his contract.
A Stevenage source has told Football Insider that Denton has been at the club today to finalise the move as he prepares to end his lengthy association with Leeds.
The 23-year-old has agreed the terms of a one-year contract with the option of another 12 months as he prepares to reignite his career after spending the last two seasons out on loan at lower league clubs.
Denton made three senior appearances for Leeds – all during the 2016-17 campaign when Garry Monk was manager – after graduating from the club’s academy.
He has played 35 matches out on loan in the last two seasons, 14 at League One club Peterborough last season and 21 at League Two’s Port Vale in the previous campaign.
The defender had slipped down the pecking order at Leeds, where multiple senior left-backs stand in his way of establishing himself.
In addition to first-choice pair Barry Douglas and Ezgjan Alioski, there are also Leif Davis and Stuart Dallas, not to mention 2018-19 loaned-out pair Laurens De Bock and Tom Pearce.
In other Leeds United news, Danny Mills has told Football Insider his information from the club is a new defender will be signed “fairly soon”.
