A number of Leeds United fans have taken to Twitter to comment on the news that the club confirmed on their official website that Jordan Stevens has signed a new contract at Elland Road.
Stevens appears to have established himself as one of the most promising youngsters in the club’s under-23 ranks. The midfielder arrived from Forest Green Rovers back in 2018, and has already made his first-team debut for Marcelo Bielsa’s side.
And after serving a suspension earlier in the season, the youngster has taken little time to get himself back into Bielsa’s plans. He was an unused substitute as Leeds beat Middlesbrough 4-0 at the weekend.
Stevens has now been handed a further boost. The club have confirmed on their official website that the 19-year-old has signed a new contract that will keep him at Leeds until 2022.
Unsurprisingly, the news has gone down extremely well amongst the Whites fans on social media. He has impressed for the under-23s this term.
And it is clear that Bielsa has high hopes for Stevens. It would certainly be no surprise if he was given the chance to at least make his second first-team appearance before the end of the campaign.
Plenty have praised the decision to get Stevens tied down to fresh terms. And they have expressed their hope that he will soon enjoy more game-time with the senior squad.
There have also been calls for the next deal that the fans want to see agreed.
Here is how some of the supporters reacted to the announcement…
Instead of the awful jokes I’ll just say good news and hopefully he’ll show what he’s got in for the first Team in the coming future MOT

That’s great news for the U23’s. What do these young talents we have got to do to get a few first team minutes?
