Ian Poveda has taken to Twitter to express his delight at joining Leeds United from Manchester City.
The 19-year-old winger has signed a contract with the West Yorkshire outfit until the summer of 2024.

Replacement for Jack Clarke
Poveda is essentially a replacement for Jack Clarke, who was recalled by his parent club Tottenham Hotspur and subsequently sent out on loan to Championship side Queens Park Rangers for the second half of the campaign.
Clarke struggled for playing time at Elland Road this season, but the winger was a good option to have in the squad.
Poveda is unlikely to go straight into the Leeds starting lineup, but with his pace, skills and tricks, the teenager will provide head coach Marcelo Bielsa with a good option on the substitutes’ bench.
