Scottish twins Jack and Paul McKay have left the club after two years and have joined Neil Warnock at Cardiff City for a trial. The twins were originally signed by Steve Evans, and only Paul made a senior appearance for the club during their spell.

Jack had a spell on loan in the lower Scottish leagues last season but apart from that first-team football has been hard to come by, even at Airdrie he was struggling for form. Paul’s most noticeable moment was playing in the FA Cup third round trip, and defeat to Sutton United, one of the worst performances and results in our recent history. They are the sons of football agent Willie McKay and that is probably the reason they have managed to hook up with another club so quickly in Cardiff City. I do struggle to see either of them making a first-team in this division, especially one as strong as Cardiff City but stranger things have happened.

Leeds were struggling for a development team when the pair were signed, and the club did a pay a fee to bring them up from Doncaster Rovers. The twins had been in competition with West Ham United who had also offered the contracts and money for the players. They were very good servants for the development squad and now that squad and pool has been pushed on dramatically over the summer and maybe it’s for the best the lads move on for their careers.

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.
