Leeds United has signed two new players in recent days,

demonstrating their readiness for the transfer market.

Joe Rodon, who had an outstanding loan spell the previous season,

returned to Elland Road permanently as the Whites’ first summer signing.

After Rodon was signed, Leeds brought seasoned

goalkeeper Alex Cairns back to Elland Road for a two-year deal.

The 31-year-old left Salford City for the Whites for a

“nominal six-figure fee,” according to Leeds Live.

After Kristoffen Klaesson signed Polish top

division team Rakow Czestochowa,

Cairns is expected to be the third-choice keeper behind Illan Meslier and Karl Darlow.

After progressing through Leeds’ ranks,

Cairns made his professional debut in the 2011–12 campaign.

Having played with the Whites for several loan periods,

he signed for Chesterfield in 2015 and left Elland Road.

Since then, Cairns has been

signed by Rotherham United, Fleetwood Town, and Salford

City before finally departing the Lions to rejoin Leeds.

The goalie, who began the Carabao

Cup first round match against Leeds last season

while he was at Salford, won

the penalty shootout against his childhood team.

On Instagram, Leeds announced Cairns’ comeback.

Several of his colleagues, such as

Ross McCormack, Robert Snodgrass, and Alex Mowatt,

replied in the comments.

“Nice Alan, looks classy,” “well done, big fella,” and “tell you what,

fantastic from the banter master” were written by Mowatt, Snodgrass, and McCormack,

respectively.
Cairns is regarded as a Leeds native player.

Leeds Live claims that the agreement’s compliance

with two EFL rules is a crucial component.

Cairns, a “club developed player” from home,

joined the team three years prior to turning 21.

According to EFL regulations, a team’s 25-man roster must

include at least one “club developed player”

and seven homegrown players. Cairns, along with Sam Byram,

helps Leeds reach this target.

The Whites are required to list one club-developed

player who has been with the squad for three seasons or more on an

EFL matchday team sheet.

Charlie Cresswell and Jamie Shackleton left Leeds,

taking two players who had been nurtured by the club.

However, the Whites can now name

Cairns, Byram, or any other current Under-21 player

who has spent three seasons or more at Thorp Arch.

On an EFL matchday team sheet, the Whites must

include one club-developed player who has been a member of

the team for three seasons or more.

Two players who had been developed by Leeds,

Charlie Cresswell and Jamie Shackleton, departed.

On the other hand, the Whites can now mention Cairns,

Byram, or any other active Under-21 player

who has played at Thorp Arch for three seasons or longer.
