Sean McGurk becomes Leeds United's fourth summer signing

LEEDS UNITED have completed the signing of Wigan Athletic attacking midfielder Sean McGurk for an undisclosed fee.

The 18-year-old - subject of an enquiry from Leeds in January - has agreed a three-year deal with United, who brought former Latics player Joe Gelhardt to the club last August for a £1m fee.

McGurk helped Wigan under-18s to the Professional Development League National championship last season as the north-west side secured back-to-back titles. The teenager hit 13 goals in the process.
