Leeds United have extended Clarke Oduor's contract at Thorp Arch.

In doing so, the 19-year-old becomes the second player to commit his future to Leeds in less than 24 hours, after they also signed up Robbie Gotts on Saturday.

It's a pro-active approach from United and here's how some fans reacted to the Oduor news on Twitter.

 

Oduor was given his Leeds debut in the FA Cup defeat by QPR last month.

He came on in the final minutes to replace Leif Davis and earn a first taste of senior football under Marcelo Bielsa.

If Leeds do win Premier League promotion, the window to experiment with youth players will only get even smaller and perhaps it's best for Oduor and other prospects to be loaned out, regardless what league the senior lads are competing in.

Bielsa's side are third in the Championship after Norwich and Sheffield United - both of whom have played a game more - won on Saturday.
