The Leeds goalkeeper has left the club to pursue a career in the MLS.

Charlie Horton has taken to Twitter with a statement after agreeing to leave Leeds United.

The American had already spoken to the club and sent a message to fans but this time went into more detail.

Horton will pursue a career in the MLS and has thanked all of those who worked with him at Elland Road, including the likes of both Steve Evans, Uwe Rosler and more.

And the goalkeeper also explained what owner Massimo Cellino said to him. Indeed, the Italian made it clear to Horton he was seen as a shot stopper with a very bright future. But, when he decided to part company with Leeds, Cellino was supportive of the American and accepted his departure.

What will Evans and co do in terms of goalkeepers at Leeds now? Will United sign a new stopper or will Marco Silvestri continue to bear the brunt with little in the way of competition?

The Whites face Queens Park Rangers in their next Championship clash, looking to bounce back from their 1-0 defeat to Rotherham United and former boss Neil Redfearn last weekend.
