DONE DEAL: Leeds sign ex-Chelsea trialist Charlie Allen

Northern Ireland youth international Charlie Allen has joined Leeds United from Irish Premiership champions Linfield on a three-year deal.

The 16-year-old has joined the Elland Road side on their return to the Premier League for an undisclosed fee.

Allen, who became Linfield's youngest ever debutant at the age of 15, will initially link up with the Leeds U18s side.

Linfield are managed by former Leeds striker David Healy.

Allen trialled with Chelsea last year after bursting onto the first team scene in Northern Ireland.
