'England's future': Some Leeds fans react as teenager confirms Elland Road move on Twitter amid PL links
A number of Leeds United fans have taken to Twitter to react as Darryl Ombang confirmed on social media that he has signed for the Whites.
Ombang looks to have an incredibly bright future ahead. The goalkeeper made his under-18 debut for Bradford City at the age of 14.
He is now an England under-16 international. And according to previous reports, he has been watched by the likes of Manchester United and Everton.
However, that Daily Mail report in June claimed that Leeds were closing in. And Ombang has now confirmed the move on social media.
The youngster posted two pictures showing him at Elland Road, including one of him holding a shirt.
It looks to be a coup for Leeds. And it appears that the supporters are already optimistic that they have landed another gem.
The Whites have done some amazing business in the transfer market in recent years, particularly when it comes to bolstering their youth ranks.
‘Brilliant’: Leeds fans react to Ombang move
This summer, Amari Miller and Sean McGurk have arrived. Ombang is younger than the pair. But he will hope to really put himself on the fans’ radar in the coming months.
For some, Leeds have signed a future England international. There was also a message of support from former Whites youngster Ethan Kachosa.
With that in mind, here is some of the reaction to the news…
Your time brother ❤️ https://t.co/fSjSPyIUwC
