The 72

As covered here on The72 on Wednesday, Leeds United defender Tyler Denton is on the brink of making a move away from the club, with League Two side Stevenage set to be his destination.

Now, it has been reported by Football Insider that Tyler Denton has arrived at League Two side Stevenage to complete his transfer from Leeds United ahead of the new season.

Leeds United have shown no prisoners in shipping out young players who have been deemed to have no future with the club. The likes of Aapo Halme and Liam Kitching have moved on to join Barnsley and Forest Green Rovers respectively, and another man looks set to join them in leaving the Whites on a permanent basis summer.

23-year-old left-back Tyler Denton has agreed to join Stevenage and a move will seemingly be confirmed imminently. Despite having a year left on his deal at Elland Road, the club are allowing Denton to leave the club on a free transfer, bringing an end to his long affiliation with the club.

The left-back made his way through the club’s academy before pushing his way into the club’s first-team under Steve Evans. He went on to play three times for the club but after Evans’ departure, Denton’s first-team opportunities dwindled. Since then, he has spent time on loan with Port Vale (21 games, three assists) and Peterborough United (14 games, two assists) – where he linked up with Evans once again.

Now, with a permanent move away set to be completed, Denton will be hoping he can enjoy a successful season with Stevenage in his first season no longer contracted to Leeds United.
