Bailey Peacock-Farrell is one of four Leeds youngsters who have signed new contracts, the club announced on Thursday.
The 19-year-old goalkeeper has ended doubts about his future by penning a two-year deal with the Yorkshire giants.
Leeds have also announced on their official website that left-back Tom Pearce, right-back Michael Taylor and centre-back Jack Vann, all 18, have agreed their first professional contracts with the club.
Pearce, Taylor and Vann have stepped up from the academy to pen one-year deals.
Peacock-Farrell, who progressed through the ranks at Thorp Arch to make his senior debut last season, put pen to paper on Wednesday evening after being offered fresh terms earlier this summer.
The new deals for the quartet come a week after the appointment of new manager Garry Monk and is a boost to the club, particularly the commitment of Peacock-Farrell.
Monk recently spoke about how important it was to tie down Leeds’ academy stars to new deals at the club with Peacock-Farrell’s previous deal expiring this month and Charlie Taylor and Lewis Cook entering the final year of their contracts.
Peacock-Farrell was thought to have been unsure about what kind of future Leeds were offering him, but his deal was confirmed as the club’s first major piece of business this summer.
Leeds have yet to welcome any new faces to Elland Road, although the club only appointed new boss Monk last week.
In other Leeds news, the Whites have lost out on another signing this summer to Championship rivals.
