Forward Lewis Walters, 17, signs a professional contract with Leeds United after impressing in the club's Under-18 side.

Teenager forward Lewis Walters has signed a professional contract with Leeds United.

The 17-year-old, who is the top scorer for United's Under-18 side this season, is delighted to have put pen to paper.

"It's one of the best feelings I've ever had," he told the club's official website. "It couldn't have gone any better for me really.

"I joined the academy quite late and wasn't expecting to get a club, but Leeds came in and I got a scholarship and I thought the only thing I can do is keep kicking on and try and get a pro contract, and now it's a dream come true.

"I'd like to try and be involved with the first team. I've got to keep doing what I'm doing, keep improving and try and get more goals."

Walters's contract will run until June 2015.
