Kamwa has impressed for the Under-18s and he’ll be looking to progress through to the Under-23s and ultimately the senior squad.
Manager Paul Heckingbottom has shown that he’s happy to give young players a chance, with both goalkeeper Bailey Peacock-Farrell and defender Tom Pearce breaking through to the senior team in recent weeks.
Kamwa will be hoping to do the same after a string of eye-catching performances has brought him his first professional contract.
The majority of Leeds fans were fully supportive of Kamwa, although one couldn’t resist taking a dig at the first-team squad.
Another congratulated Kamwa and then demanded that Leeds announce the contract extension for Pablo Hernandez.
Here are the best reactions from Leeds fans:
That is a luxurious shirt, good signing MOT
