BBC Radio Leeds journalist Adam Pope tweeted at the weekend that Leeds have signed Hosannah to a one year contract.

Hosannah played in Palace's under-18 side last season.

The 18-year-old will hope to do enough this campaign to earn an extended contract at Leeds, and give himself a chance of kicking on and one day making the first team.
