Leeds have completed the signing of Chelsea midfielder Lewis Bate on a three-year deal.

The 18-year-old, who captained his former club in last year’s FA Youth Cup final, has joined for an undisclosed fee following interest from several Premier League clubs.

Bate has represented England at Under-17 and Under-18 level but has yet to make his senior professional debut and will join Leeds’ Under-23 side at first.

His signing further boosts Marcelo Bielsa’s group, following the summer arrivals of Junior Firpo, Jack Harrison, Shaun McGurk and Amari Miller.
