Just weeks after Charlie Cresswell extended his stay at Elland Road, Leeds fans flocked to the tweet to share their delight at the youngster committing his future to the club, seemingly expecting the teenage prospect to follow in his footsteps and make his way into the first team.

What did these Leeds fans have to say?

“Fully deserved, as a few of you know I coached Jack at Garforth Villa as a kid so watching him progress is very pleasing”

“Goes under the radar this kid, but he’s got a future. This kid will surprise a few when Bielsa suddenly gives him his debut trust me”
Finally a midfielder nah but delighted for him”
“Insane Dub!! Jenkins and Bate are going to go straight to the first team”
news for Jack. Hopefully he will get some minutes on the pitch with the first team this season”
“Europe it is”
“Buzzing, what a player”

Jenkins has played 45 minutes for the senior side in their defeat to in the FA last season and should be encouraged by Bielsa’s trust in the youth players recently, with Cresswell and Jamie Shackleton starting in the Premier League on Saturday.

Although Leeds have not made the best of starts in the top flight this term, it seems these fans are still satisfied with the moves the are making off the pitch to secure the future of some of their prospects, as despite Jenkins’ fairly low profile, there appears to be plenty of optimism with regards to his potential at Elland Road.
