The Yorkshire Evening Post reveals that Leeds United have renewed the contract of defender Ross Killock.
Killock was offered a new year-deal in May, being one of the few who survived a mass culling of senior and juniors alike.
The centre-back completed a season long loan at non-league Chester, continuing his football development, he went on to play 17 times and scoring one goal.
the 19 year-old’s contract expired at the end of last month, however he secured an additional terms on the performances in his loan spell.
Killock has been a professional since 2012, but is yet to make his senior bow for Leeds – however his chances seem more likely as he’s involved in the club’s pre-season tour of Italy.
He told the club’s official website: “It gives me another year to try and kick on and have a chance to break into the team. My loan spell at Chester was invaluable in terms of the experience I gained and that will put me in good stead for this season.
“The next 12 months are massive. You are normally looking at around three years to break into the team and if you don’t, it could be the end for you.” he added.
