Leeds United’s recruitment Monday continues with the signing of Carlisle ace Liam McCarron.
The youngster has joined the club for a nominal fee and will predominantly join the development squad for the season ahead.
McCarron began to turn heads last season when featuring for the first team at Brunton Park, making a total of 20 appearances and making one assist.
Predominantly a forward during his time in the youth ranks, McCarron has found grace in changing his position to either flank.
The 18-year old is heralded for his instinctive dribbling, pace and his work rate; the youngster could soon be a player we see on the periphery of the first team as Marcelo Bielsa looks to add wingers to his squad.
The Leeds head coach is known for allowing a small group of players and utilising the youth setup at clubs, Bielsa has overseen the emergence of Jamie Shackleton, Aapo Halme, Mateusz Bogusz, Leif Davis and countless other youngsters at the club.
The signing of McCarron could allow for the singer to be the next big thing at Elland Road as Leeds enter another tough Championship season.
