Leeds supporters have taken to social media to express their delight and approval of the club’s new academy with some fans stating the deal as “interesting”.

Gomes signed to Liverpool back in 2014 from Villarreal but the young starlet failed to making an impact while at the club.
The left-footed midfielder made just five appearances in the Premier League 2 for the Reds’ Under-23s last season, and a move to Elland Road will see the Spaniard develop with hopes of breaking into Thomas Christiansen’s first team.
Christiansen was named as Leeds boss earlier in the month after the Yorkshire club were left without a manager for over three weeks following Garry Monk’s shock resignation.
He has now welcomed youngster Gomes to the squad and fans will hope to see the arrival of senior players in the near future.
