Leeds secure Gunners youngster

Published Add your comment

Leeds have signed Arsenal youngster Sanchez Watt on a season-long loan deal.

The England Under-19 international winger enjoyed a successful spell on loan at Elland Road last season, playing six games to help the Yorkshire club clinch promotion from League One.

Leeds manager Simon Grayson was pleased with the signing, and said: "We're delighted we've managed to bring Sanchez back."

He added: "He did well last year and he's another good addition to our squad. He's a young and up-and-coming player who has plenty to offer and his arrival will only increase the competition for places."

Watt is United's eighth summer signing and is likely to temporarily fill the gap left by Robert Snodgrass, who is out for around a month due to a knee injury.
