The 22-year-old striker played 24 times for the Posh; scoring 7 goals. During his time with Posh, he went out on 5 different loan spells, after failing to secure a regular first team place with his parent club.
Leeds United manager, Dave Hockaday, told the Club’s website,
“Nicky was involved with a very good group of players in the Manchester United Academy and he was one of the high flyers in that group.”
Hockaday went on to say,
“He can play up front in a number roles and he is very talented. He is a super professional and is an ideal addition to our squad.”
