Leeds United’s Wilfried Gnonto sends statement following Elland Road announcement on Friday

Willy Gnonto has given a two-word message to Leeds United’s Mateo Joseph following his confirmed new deal at Elland Road

The Whites stated on their official website (19 January) that Joseph signed a new long-term contract with the club after reaching terms that will keep him in West Yorkshire until 2028.

This season, under Daniel Farke’s direction, the kid has already appeared six times in the first team, most notably in the Emirates FA Cup victory over Peterborough United.
And Joseph resorted to his personal Instagram account on January 19 to reveal his new agreement at Elland Road, writing: “I’m so excited to let you know I’ve extended my contract with this incredible club.” Very happy to continue to be part of this family.

“I want to take this opportunity to sincerely thank all fans for backing us every game and post-training. Even on freezing days, waiting patiently to greet us, you inspire us to keep fighting

“Massive thanks to those who’ve been with me watching my first steps in the U21 team. Your support from the beginning means the world to me. Grateful for every teammate, coach, and staff member I’ve shared the dressing room with.

“This is just the kick-off for a new exciting chapter, and I can’t wait to give it my best in every match to repay the trust you’ve given me!

And Gnonto, who has been extensively linked with a transfer away from Elland Road, responded to Joseph‘s post by congratulating the kid on his new agreement and writing: “Vamos Fernandez.”
Great news!

The Whites have done an amazing job in signing two of their brightest young players at Elland Road to new contracts just a few days following Archie Gray‘s statement on Tuesday (16 January).

Joseph is without a doubt one of the club’s best young players, and we’ve seen that when given the opportunity, he understands how to score.

Not only that, but his prestigious talent and potential are simply too great to let him go so easily, and it is in the best interests of the club as a whole to keep some of its top players.

The teenager has yet to start a Championship game this season, and it remains to be seen whether that will alter quickly following this new deal, thus a loan move for Joseph is possible.

With Georginio Rutter, Joel Piroe, and Patrick Bamford all ahead of him in the pecking order, his chances of earning a run of games at Elland Road are minimal to none, and a loan move may be his best choice.
A Championship loan may be ideal for getting him ready for the future at Leeds, whether stepping up or preparing for next season, and it could also benefit Leeds if he scores goals against our rivals.
