Jonathan Leko signs first professional contract with West Brom

West Brom striker Jonathan Leko has signed his first professional contract at The Hawthorns.

The 17-year-old academy graduate, who joined the club at 11, has penned a three-year deal following his breakthrough into the first team last season.

He made his debut in the League Cup against Norwich in September before making a Premier League bow for the Baggies aged 16 when he appeared as a substitute in the 0-0 draw at Sunderland in April.

There he became the first player born in 1999 to appear in England's top flight.
