Mallik Wilks has put pen to paper to a new contract with Leeds United.

The young striker has agreed to extend his stay at Elland Road until the summer of 2022, with the lengthy deal a sign of the Whites' faith in the 20-year-old.

Wilks has been on loan at Doncaster Rovers in League One this season and has found the back of the net eight times for the side.

Following penning the new contract, Wilks has now headed back to Doncaster, where he will ply his trade for the remainder of the campaign.

Doncaster are in action later today at home against Rochdale as they look to kick off 2019 with a win.

The club are knocking on the door of the playoff spots in League One, having collected 42 points from 25 games, just one fewer than sixth placed Charlton Athletic.

With Leeds flying high at the top of the Championship table, Wilks will hope that when he returns to Elland Road in the summer he will be walking back into a Premier League side.
