Rushian Hepburn-Murphy has signed a new deal at Aston Villa.
The 18-year-old striker has put pen to paper on a three-and-a-half year contract, which keeps him at Villa until the summer of 2020.
Steve Bruce said: “We’re delighted to see Rushian sign this new deal.
“Rushian is highly thought of at this football club and I believe he has a bright future in the game.
“He needs to get his head down now, work hard in training – and the opportunities will come.
“Andre Green has been given a chance over the past few weeks and I believe in Rushian’s qualities too. He can be an important player for us.”
Leeds have been partially successful in their appeal over the transfer of Ross McCormack in 2014
Leeds have been partially successful in their appeal against the transfer of Ross McCormack.
The Whites were handed a hefty ban over the sale of McCormack to Fulham back in July 2014.
Both Leeds and agent Derek Day were hit with major fines after the breach of regulations but the club have since appealed against the charge.
Today, the club posted the following statement on their official website: "Leeds United Football Club can confirm that it has today been partially successful in its Appeal against the original decision connected to this matter.
"The Club’s fine for allegedly breaching FA Agents Regulations has been reduced from £250,000 to £200,000.
"Although the Appeal has been successful, the Club remains disappointed by the outcome and the size of the fine that remains.
"The Club are also incredibly disappointed by the fine and ban imposed upon Mr Cellino, despite reductions following the Appeal.
"Mr Cellino is responsible for significantly reducing the Club’s debt and wage bill as well as the appointment of Garry Monk. Mr Cellino has been the integral leader of the Club’s re-emergence this season.
"The Club will now consider all options with its legal team before making any further comment."

Rafa Benitez insists he will not quit his job as manager of Newcastle.
The Spaniard was left frustrated by the club's lack of activity in the January transfer window and it was claimed he could step down from his position after failing to get the backing he wanted from owner Mike Ashley.
But Benitez has dismissed these claims saying he is focused on nothing other than getting promotion back to the Premier League.
“I will not quit. I will not leave," Benitez said.
“It’s so simple, so clear. I focus on the next game, rest of season and to get promoted.
“We can’t blame each other now.”
