Leeds swoop for Man Utd youngster Wootton

Championship Leeds United have signed defender Scott Wootton from Manchester United for an undisclosed fee. The former England youth international, 21, made four first-team appearances at Old Trafford and has agreed a three-year contract at Elland Road.

"He's a player who has played in the Champions League and someone we feel will develop with us," boss Brian McDermott told the club website.

"I want to say thanks to the owners for doing the deal and bringing another young player to help us go forward."
