Leeds United have announced their second signing of the summer with Chelsea goalkeeper Jamal Blackman arriving on loan for the season.
The 24-year-old Blackman spent last season on loan at Sheffield United, making 31 appearances for the Blades, keeping eight clean sheets.
He is both the second arrival at Elland Road this summer and the second season long loan from Chelsea after midfielder Lewis Baker joined the Whites earlier in the transfer window.

Blackman will have youngster Bailey Peacock-Farrell as competition after the 21-year-old established himself as Leeds’ first choice goalkeeper at the end of last season, making 11 appearances.
Leeds fans have been reacting on social media to the club’s latest signing of the summer, with many hoping it will spur the club on to complete more deals in the coming weeks.
