Leeds United defender Jack Vann never managed to make his first-team debut at Elland Road.

Jack Vann has confirmed his departure from Leeds United on social media website Twitter.

Vann had spent 11 years at Leeds, but was not offered new terms - meaning his contract has now expired.

The news that the defender has not been offered a new deal has come as some surprise to Leeds fans, as he was very highly regarded member of the academy.

Vann was included in Leeds’ under-21 side when he was just 16, with hopes high for his future.

The youngster signed professional terms with Leeds last year, but has not done enough to earn a contract extension.

And Vann sent a message of thanks to Leeds staff on Twitter last night, confirming his exit.

Vann's message caused Leeds fans to express their surprise in reply to his exit.  

Billy Whitehouse was another member of Leeds’ academy, who also confirmed his departure on social media yesterday (HITC).

Both Whitehouse and Vann leave Leeds having failed to make their first-team debuts.
