Leeds United have confirmed that young midfielder Bobby Kamwa has signed a new deal with the club. 

The Whites made the announcement via their official website on Friday.

The 20-year-old has put pen to paper on a new contract that will extend until at least 2022.

The starlet has yet to make his first team debut at Elland Road, but is a regular fixture of Leeds’ U23s setup.

Kamwa missed large parts of this season through injury, but scored three goals in his previous five matches prior to lockdown.

The Cameroonian has progressed through the Whites academy system, and was facing the prospect of his contract expiring this summer before agreeing to this new deal.

This is a really positive piece of news for Leeds and Kamwa.

The youngster has struggled with injuries this term, but really looked to be hitting his stride for the U23s just prior to the suspension of their season because of the Coronavirus pandemic.

Three in five is a really decent record for a midfielder, and his sharpness and predatory instinct was on full display when he tucked away a brilliant finish against Barnsley back in March.

In that instance, Kamwa really highlighted his proclivity for arriving into the box late to sweep home a cutback from Ian Poveda, and his finish was calm and precise enough to suggest that he has something special in his locker.

Even back in 2018, he was voted player of the tournament as Leeds won the U18s Aspire Tri-Series trophy.

With enough time and patience, the Cameroonian could prove to be a real asset for the Whites, and hopefully this new deal will afford him both of those commodities in abundance.
