Young Leeds United striker signs new long-term contract at Championship club

YOUNG Leeds United forward Mateo Joseph has signed a new long-term deal with the Championship club.

The 20-year-old, who has featured six times this term, is now contracted at the club until June 2028.

Joseph quickly established himself in the club’s youth set-up, regularly finding the net at both under-18 and then Under-21 level, after moving to Yorkshire in early 2022.

His fine form was rewarded with a first-team debut later on in 2022, when he started against Wolves in the Carabao Cup at Molineux.

After impressing on his debut, a Premier League outing then followed just three days later when he came off the bench against Tottenham Hotspur. It was one of six appearances throughout the 2022-23 campaign.

The forward has also been recognised in the England set-up, representing the Three Lions at under-20 level 10 times, scoring three goals. He was part of the U20 World Cup squad in 2023.
