Northern Ireland midfielder Alfie McCalmont has signed a four-year deal with Leeds United.

The 20-year-old was a regular for the club's Under-23s and featured in Marcelo Bielsa's match day squad as Leeds won the Championship.

He made his Leeds debut in the Carabao Cup against Salford City last August, helping United record a 3-0 victory, and also played in the next round against Stoke City.

That was followed by his senior international debut against Luxembourg last September.

McCalmont has been a regular for Northern Ireland's U21s in recent years under Ian Baraclough, who replaced Michael O'Neill as senior manager in June.

McCalmont stated on Twitter: "Delighted to sign a new four-year contract @LUFC. Looking forward to the future ahead."

He could go on loan, and it wouldn't be surprising to see him arrive at Huddersfield as Carlos Corberan is a known admirer of the youngster.

Over the summer it was revealed a decision was to be made on McCalmont's future, which resulted in Bielsa watching hours of footage over lockdown.
