Leeds United offered their young prospects new contracts earlier today.
The duo will make the step up from youth-teamers into full-time professionals next term, and they are understandably excited about the future.
Mulhern and Lyman both say that they hope their current terms will be the first of many contracts they sign at Leeds, as the pair look to become prominent members of the senior squad.
Delighted to have agreed my first professional contract at @LUFC, hopefully the first of many!— Uptown Frunkk (@Frank_Mulhern) June 2, 2015
Buzzing to have agreed professional terms at the club I have supported all my life, first but hopefully not the last! #allleedsarentwe— Tommy Lyman (@lyman__) June 2, 2015
Leeds have had a happy knack of developing their own talent down the years, and Mulhern and Lyman look to be another promising duo to have risen through their highly-regarded youth system.
This season the Whites entrusted academy graduates such as Sam Byram, Lewis Cook, Alex Mowatt and Charlie Taylor with first-team responsibilities, and Mulhern and Lyman will be hoping to follow suit.
Doing so could be more difficult under Uwe Rosler than it was when Neil Redfearn was in charge, though.
Redfearn had great faith in Leeds' youth-team, having coached at that level, but it remains to be seen whether Rosler will put so much trust in inexperienced players.
