You can completely understand why some Leeds United fans are happy with the news that Clarke Oduor has signed a new deal at Elland Road because he is fast becoming one of the top young players at the Yorkshire club. It was confirmed on Sunday afternoon that the 19-year-old agreed a new one and a half year deal with the Whites, which can be extended by an extra year. Oduor has been in terrific form for the Leeds Under-23s side this term and he even managed to impress Marcelo Bielsa to the point where he handed the teenager his first senior appearance in January. Oduor came off the bench in the final few minutes of the FA Cup third round defeat to QPR last month and while the outcome of the game is not what anyone at Leeds wanted, Oduor would have been delighted with the opportunity. Leeds have done great work with young players in the last few years and hopefully Oduor can continue on his upward trajectory.
