Leeds United's Robbie McDaid reacts on Twitter after being handed Northern Ireland Under-21 call-up

Leeds United prospect Robbie McDaid has been called up by the Northern Ireland Under-21's.

Leeds United teenager Robbie McDaid has taken to Twitter after being called up by Northern Ireland for international duty later this month.

McDaid, 19, joined Leeds from Glenavon in his native Northern Ireland back in March 2014, having impressed during a trial game with the Whites.

The youngster has been working his way up through the ranks at Leeds having joined at just 17, and has been featuring for the club's development side before being loaned out this season.

McDaid has been out on loan at non-league side Lincoln, scoring once in seven games as he continues his development away from Elland Road.

The striker will stay with Lincoln until the end of the season, but he has now also been called-up for international duty by Northern Ireland.

McDaid will play for the Northern Ireland Under-21's against Scotland later this month, as he carries on featuring for the youth sides in the hope of one day becoming a full international.

After being named in the squad, McDaid took to Twitter to state that he's glad to be in line for his fifth Under-21 cap, and is looking forward to be playing for Jim Magilton's side - and Steve Evans should be looking to see how the teenager fares in international youth football as Leeds search for a goalscorer.


Do you think McDaid will make the grade at Leeds?
