Linfield are on course to pocket at least £500,000 following Charlie Allen's move to Leeds United, which was officially confirmed this week.

The 16-year-old is one of the most exciting prospects Northern Ireland has produced in recent years and he now has the chance to continue his development at the Premier League new boys after signing a three-year deal at Elland Road.

Several top clubs, including Liverpool, Manchester United, Manchester City, Tottenham, Chelsea and Rangers, were admirers of the Blues teen, but Allen has chosen to join Northern Ireland internationals Stuart Dallas and Alfie McCalmont at the Yorkshire giants.
