Davis has penned a three-year contract with the Elland Road club
Leeds United have signed Leif Davis from Morecambe, the Championship club have announced.
Davis, 18, arrives from the League Two side for an undisclosed fee, and pens a three-year contract with the Elland Road club.
The full-back will link up with Leeds’ Under-23 side for the 2018/19 campaign, currently managed by Carlos Corberan.
Davis never made a first-team appearance for Morecambe during his time progressing through their academy, having spent two years as a scholar at the Globe Arena.
“I’m absolutely buzzing to sign,” Davis told Leeds’ official website upon his move to Elland Road. “It is a privilege to be here and I can’t wait to get started.
“It was a great experience to be at a professional club in Morecambe and it has been a stepping stone to get to where I am now, it shows if you put the hard work in, you can get the rewards.

“I was a two year scholar at Morecambe and whilst I didn’t make my debut, I was training with the first team week in week out.
“I’m a modern day attacking left back and I love getting forwards, my aim is to play in the first team one day and hopefully I can do well here and progress.
“Playing with better players makes you a better player, the facilities at Thorp Arch are amazing and I can’t wait for the season to get underway.”
