Charlie Taylor, who has recently signed a new deal with Leeds, has today won promotion from League Two with Fleetwood Town.
Taylor played the entire 90 minutes for Fleetwood at left back as they won 1-0 against promotion rivals Burton Albion.
Taylor is considered to be one of the better talents to emerge from United’s academy in recent years. He made his debut for Leeds against Crystal Palace nearly three years ago, and whilst he has rarely appeared since, there’s been a considered level of hype surrounding him.
His season at Fleetwood has impressed people further, with many calling for Taylor to be used regularly by Leeds going forward. Leeds sought to highlight the success of their academy by naming a bench entirely made of academy talents for their last home game of the season against Derby.
Massimo Cellino’s regime have also highlighted that the academy will play a key role at Leeds going forward, but with questions over the future of Thorp Arch, talents like Taylor may become rarer if the situation isn’t handled correctly.
