Alex Mowatt: Academy graduate has committed his long-term future to Leeds

The teenage midfielder is now tied to the Whites until the summer of 2017.

Mowatt is a product of the Elland Road academy system and made the breakthrough into the senior set-up at the end of August.

The 18-year-old has been a regular since making his bow and is delighted to have ended any uncertainty regarding his long-term future at the club.

Mowatt told Leeds' official website: "I'm really pleased to have signed. I've been at the club since I was six and this is where I want to play my football.

"This season has gone really, really well so far, and I just want to keep working hard, keep improving, and play my part in helping Leeds United get where we want to be."

United's managing director David Haigh said: "We're delighted we've agreed a new contract with Alex. He has been at the club most of his life, and his development and progress is a testament to the work of the club's Academy.

"The development of our own players is something we see as vitally important, and we look forward to Alex being a part of our future here."

Manager Brian McDermott said: "Everyone at Leeds United is delighted that he has committed his long-term future to us.

"Playing regular football as an 18-year-old in the Championship tells you exactly what we think of him."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
