Good luck to him. For any Leeds fans interested, hes a great talent. Wasn't really able to get a chance due to relegations but he bangs them in for fun at youth level.

Corberan's u23s? Why are we loaning him out to another Spanish club ????

Quite tall and gangly but fairly useless in the air. Gifted with the ball at his feet. Hell of a left peg. One of the best players I've seen us produce and we've had a fair number recently.

@J3tt4tur4 you've signed a really talented youngster tbh. no chance he was gonna develop at Orient considering we're in the National League so he's made a great career move

Supposed to be very very promising player
