Elland Road: Alex Mowatt signs professional forms

Midfielder Mowatt, the club's Under-18s captain, has signed a two-year deal and is the fifth of this year's scholars to sign professional terms at Elland Road.

"I'm delighted," Mowatt told the club's official website. "I've worked hard this year and hope this is the first step.

"Everyone has done really well in the Under-18s this season and I hope we can go on and win the league now."

Mowatt is hoping to follow former team-mate Sam Byram into the first-team squad.

He added: "I played with Sam a lot last season and he's a great example.

"He's played nearly every game and has been quality. He got the opportunity and took it. He shows there's a chance."

Strikers Luke Parkin and Lewis Walters, plus goalkeeper Eric Grimes, signed their first contracts earlier in the week.

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
