Although some way from a first-team breakthrough, the pair are sure to be encouraged by Leeds' impressive youth development record.
Homegrown talents Kalvin Phillips, Jack Clarke, Jamie Shackleton and Bailey Peacock-Farrell have each featured regularly under Marcelo Bielsa, whose side remains on course for promotion via the Championship play-offs this season.
