Two more youngsters extend stay at Elland Road

Midfielder Rhys Chadwick has signed his first professional contract with Leeds United, which will see him continue his development at Thorp Arch.

The 17-year-old has been given a two-year deal after becoming an integral player in Rob Etherington's Under-18s side which reached the FA Youth Cup final last season.

Chadwick also started a number of matches in the Under-21s' Premier League 2 campaign, after impressing boss Scott Gardner.

Luca Thomas has also agreed on a one-year contract extension at Elland Road.

The versatile forward - who can play as a striker or a winger - has worked his way through the club's youth ranks, representing Leeds United in the U18 Premier League, Premier League 2 and FA Youth Cup so far.

Thomas made 18 appearances in the Premier League 2 last season, scoring six goals and registering four assists along the way.
