JD Club NI graduate Charlie Allen signs for Leeds United

JD Club NI graduate Charlie Allen has signed for Premier League side Leeds United. 

Allen, who has represented Northern Ireland and Under 17 level, has penned a three-year deal with the Elland Road outfit.

He joins the newly-promoted side from Danske Bank Premiership champions Linfield for whom he became the Belfast club’s youngest ever debutant at the age of 15.

The 16-year-old, who is from Carrickfergus and will initially link up with Leeds’ Under-18s, was also part of the Northern Ireland U16 Schoolboys’ side which won the Victory Shield in 2018 for only the second time in history.
