LEEDS United have signed hotly-tipped teenage striker Robbie McDaid on a two-year contract.
The 17 year-old scored twice for Leeds under-17s against Sheffield Wednesday in a trial game last month.
Professional development coach Neil Redfearn said on the club’s official website: “He’s a great signing for us. It’s a real coup given the interest in him from a lot of clubs.
“He’s done really well for Glenavon, and because he has been playing senior football for a while, he’s already got that experience, and the transition should be easy to cope with.
“He is a player who knows his position, he runs the channels well, and the most important thing as a striker is that he knows where the back of the net is.”
Leeds United managing director David Haigh said: “We’re delighted to bring Robbie into the club.
“There were a number of clubs interested in him and it’s a credit to everyone here that he’s agreed to join us on a two-year contract.
“We always speak about the importance of developing and recruiting young players, and Robbie is a player our coaches are excited about working with.”
As part of the deal, Leeds will play a friendly against Glenavon this summer.
