Leeds United goalkeeper Harrison Male signs first professional deal

Though the season has barely been over, Leeds are already making moves for the future.

On Friday, Leeds United announced that they signed academy goalkeeper Harrison Male to his first professional contract.

The club has signed him to a one-year deal.

“I am very proud, I’ve been at the club for 10 years now.

“It is a happy moment for me and my family to get my first professional contract here and hopefully it is the first of many.

“The vibe is good in the club, the Under-23s have been doing really well along with the Under-18s and we’ve achieved a lot over the last couple of years.

“My aim now is to continue improving and to try and hopefully one day get onto the pitch at Elland Road and start a game for the first team.”

Male will likely remain a member of the U-23s. He spent the season on loan at Tadcaster Albion.
