DONE DEAL: Leeds sign West Ham striker Sonny Perkins

Leeds United have completed the signing of Sonny Perkins.

Perkins, 18, has agreed a three-year-deal with the Whites, until 2025, after his contract at fellow Premier League side West Ham United expired this summer.

After beginning his youth career with Leyton Orient, the early talent of Perkins quickly alerted West Ham United, who he joined in 2019.

Perkins has played 14 times for England across Under-15s, Under-16s and Under-18s level, scoring seven times in those matches.

Sonny becomes the club’s seventh summer signing, after the arrivals of Brenden Aaronson, Rasmus Kristensen, Marc Roca, Darko Gyabi, Tyler Adams and Luis Sinisterra.

He will initially link up with the Under-21s side for the forthcoming season.
