Leeds United's star youngsters are taking a well earned break with the season now over.

While speculation continues over the future of head coach Neil Redfearn, the players he helped become stars are deservedly off on holidays.

Talented midfielder Alex Mowatt posted a photo on his Instagram page from Tenerife last night, where he had been watching the Barcelona v Bayern Munich Champions League clash in a bar with pals.

These included fellow Leeds stars Charlie Taylor and Sam Byram, key members of the Leeds first team.

In an ideal world Leeds' players would be preparing for the play-offs right now, but this was off the agenda before 2015 began, with a relegation battle more likely.

A winning run in the new year served to put these fears to rest, but Leeds' youngsters need more support from quality additions next season to reach the next level.

Whether they are anxiously checking for updates with regard to Neil Redfearn is uncertain, but if they get news while in Tenerife that the boss is being kept on for 2015/16 and hopefully beyond, then they will really have reason to celebrate.
