Billy Whitehouse has described his short stay at Leeds as an “incredible year” and thanked the club as his contract enters its final two months.
The 20-year-old was brought to Elland Road back in the summer from Yorkshire neighbours Doncaster until the end of the 2016-17 campaign, but it appears he will not be given a new deal.
The midfielder posted what seems to be a farewell to Leeds fans on his personal Twitter account, wishing “all the best” to those who he met at the Championship club.

Yorkshire giants Leeds opted to sign Whitehouse from their local rivals after the youngster made 11 senior appearances for Darren Ferguson’s side.
However, he was immediately loaned to feeder club Guiseley who play in the National League, but only managed one outing before returning to Leeds in January.
Wearing the number 37 shirt, Whitehouse then made his Leeds debut as manager Garry Monk rang the changes in order to rest his senior stars against Sutton United in the FA Cup.
However, Whitehouse, along with the likes of Mallik Wilks, Tyler Denton and Paul McKay were all guilty of under-performing as Leeds suffered an embarrassing 1-0 loss on January 29.
It remains to be seen what is next for the midfielder, as he looks set for a new club ahead of the 2017-18 campaign.
