Youngster Tyler Denton has today completed his move to Michael Brown’s Port Vale. The full back can’t play on Wednesday night against Leeds but will be available for the weekend.

Denton recently signed a new deal with the club and for me this move was a must for the youngster to see what he’s really made of. He certainly had the raw attributes to be a good full back but he isn’t ready for the Leeds first team, despite fans asking why we are effectively replacing him with Cameron Borthwick-Jackson. Borthwick-Jackson is ready to play in the Championship and Denton isn’t, so it’s a good move by the club.

Denton hasn’t featured for the club in the league despite us playing most of last season with no recognised left back. He has played some League Cup games including his debut at Luton Town last year where he scored the winner with a lovely effort. He featured in the first couple of pre-season games but Christiansen has opted to sign another and send Denton on loan.

About Author

Born in Gibraltar, raised in Scotland from a very young age. Been a huge fan of Leeds United since I could walk and talk, thanks to my Dad, the English half of me. After a few years in Australia I moved to Leeds, the trips from Scotland down to the city a few times a season didn't cut it. Love the city. Love the people, and the 12 hour round trip to Elland Road is about a 20 minute round trip. Love writing about the club, the more I write the more I feel comfortable doing it. As long as it's enjoyable I'll continue to do so, keep looking to step it up and progress as well. Leeds United is more than just a football team for me, as is it with so many others.
