Leeds United defender Tyler Denton has now completed his move to Stevenage as confirmed on their official website.

The youngster has signed for the League Two side for an undisclosed fee as the exodus at Elland Road continues.

The full back has risen through the academy ranks and leaves the Whites having made just three senior appearances. He has recently enjoyed loan spells at Port Vale and Peterborough United.

Denton has signed a one-year-contract with Stevenage with the option of a further year. The attacking full back has also represented England U17s so comes with international experience despite his tender years.

There has been a flurry of activity this transfer window in the defensive department for Leeds with Pontus Jansson leaving for Brentford and Aapo Halme joining Barnsley both on permanent deals.

Despite defenders exiting Leeds so far this summer, it was of no real surprise to see Denton be allowed to move on.

At 23-years-old this is the right career move for him as he was clearly out of favour at Leeds and even though he is dropping down a couple of divisions, a new challenge is just what the defender needs.

It is of no secret that Leeds are looking to lower their wage bill and their need to sell players so that they are able to reinvest sensibly in the rest of their squad.

At present the Whites are looking rather thin on the ground when it comes to their defence and will need to look at adding some quality additions if they are to compete at the top of the Championship once again next season.
