Leeds fans react on Twitter after Mulhern, Lyman and Peacock-Farrell agree new contracts

Three Leeds United youngsters signed their first professional contracts this week, so what did fans of the Whites have to say?

Leeds United had more good news for their fans on Tuesday morning when they announced on their official website that three talented teenagers had agreed their first professional contracts at the club.

While deals are yet to be signed, Frank Mulhern, Tom Lyman and Bailey Peacock-Farrell have agreed deals in principle that will be ratified when the three youngsters return for pre-season training.

It is great news for a club that is starting to deliver it far more regularly than their fans have been used to, and follows hot on the heels of Lewis Cook’s new two-year contract and reports that highly-rated midfielder Kalvin Phillips will soon follow suit.

Mulhern is arguably the pick of the bunch, the striker ending last season as the top scorer for Leeds’ under-18s, but both attacking midfielder Lyman and goalkeeper Peacock-Farrell are also very gifted young players.

Leeds have a whole raft of those, but is down to new manager Uwe Rosler to blend those prodigious talents with more experienced heads in order to steer the club back to the top flight after too long away.
