The young man impresses at the opportunity of the first team

Leeds United could have found a diamond in the rough this summer after the club agreed on contract terms with the former Manchester City academy prospect. Joe snowdon This summer, and the young man has begun to attract attention in the first team after receiving the opportunity to train with Marcelo Bielsa’s team.

Snowdon joined Leeds last summer and shone so well at the U18 level, while scoring 5 goals in 16 appearances, that the club saw fit to sign him to a two-year contract at Elland Road.

He was expected to progress gradually under U23 over the course of his two-year pro contract, but as of now, he could potentially be ahead of schedule on his development track.

In total, Snowdon has scored 6 goals and added 2 assists in his eighteen games for Leeds U18, and his ability to bring in goals from midfield could offer a credible long-term solution for the Whites in midfield.

Currently, Marcelo Bielsa has only four true center-back options to turn to through Kalvin Phillips, Mateusz Klich, Adam Foreshaw and Jamie Shackleton. That lack of depth has seen players like center-backs Robin Koch and Pascal Struijk, right-back Stuart Dallas and forward Rodrigo used in midfield to cover parts of the season when fitness or selection issues arise.

Although Snowdon is still only 17 years old and has yet to appear at the U23 level, giving him the opportunity to train with the first team squad shows real faith in the youngster’s abilities, and a rapid rise in the ranks cannot be accomplished. stairs. discarded given the current set of circumstances.
