Leeds recruitment in the academy has been better this year than many previous combined. The youngsters have always come through ranks of local sides but actually attracting other players into the setup hasn’t always been easy. Today Leeds have added yet another new player, Bryce Hosannah.

The young right-back has been with the Crystal Palace academy in recent years and was looking for a new club, Leeds happy to play him in a recent game to see how he does. He has today confirmed via his twitter account that he has penned a deal with Leeds and he is very excited about the new challenge. The club have been recruiting heavily with the youth sides depleted in recent years, a lot of the players breaking onto the first-team or moving on.

So far this summer Leeds have recruited Kun, Adrian Baloboa and Oriol Rey from Barcelona, Ousama Siddiki from Real Madrid along with Alejandro Machuca and that adds to some of the talent already there. Hosannah will slot into a side that lacks defenders and will play alongside Rey, the 19-year-old Barcelona lad who signed a two-year-deal with the club two weeks ago. The recruitment is set to continue under Victor Orta and Ivan Bravo who seem to have their finger on the pulse.

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.
