Leeds United youth coach and Portadown man Thomas McStravick says Charlie Allen is in good hands at Elland Road and he expects more Irish League players to seal a move across the water.

The 31-year-old is a senior project officer with the community focused Leeds United Foundation and is also the club's under-14 coach.

Helping young players fulfil their potential is one of his major passions in life and that's reflected in his role as founder of the Playing For The Future Group.
