Leeds have handed a professional contract to teenage midfielder Chris Dawson that will keep him at Elland Road until 2015.

The 18-year-old has made an impressive start to the season and has appeared for the club's Under-21s side in recent weeks.

Leeds development coach Neil Redfearn told the club's official website: "I think we will see a lot more of Chris Dawson. He has great feet and is a football athlete, which is what we're looking at in the academy."
