There’s no better place to start regarding a new era at Leeds United than a done deal, and yesterday afternoon it was confirmed that the Championship outfit had finalised the signing of 22 year-old Cameron Stewart.
The former Hull winger was once a central figure in the Tigers first team, but has been farmed out for the last few years, with his latest loan stint coming at Charlton Athletic this season.
And during his six months at the Valley, the former Junior Lion lodged three goals and one assist in 15 starts – a rare beacon of hope in a rather stale Addicks side that are struggling at the foot of the second tier table.
Along the way, he’s averaged 1.2 shots and 1.3 successful dribbles per game from his progressive performances on the left hand side, often producing mazy solo runs and sublime long-range finishes.
Stewart’s Leeds move will be structured by a 93-day emergency loan spell, followed by a permanent three-year deal that will come into effect when the young winger’s KC Stadium contract expires at the end of the season.
