DONE DEAL: Leeds snap up Wigan Athletic prospect Sean McGurk

Leeds United have snapped up Wigan Athletic prospect Sean McGurk.

The 18-year-old joins the club for an undisclosed fee from Sky Bet League One side Wigan Athletic.

He has agreed a three-year-deal with the Whites, with his contract running until the summer of 2024.

Attacking midfielder McGurk last season helped Wigan's Under-18s become Professional Development League National champions.

He hit 13 goals in the process, ensuring the Latics secured back-to-back league titles, along with five strikes in three games in their FA Youth Cup run.

McGurk will now link up with Mark Jackson's Under-23 side, who will play in Premier League 2 Division 1 in the upcoming campaign.
