Chelsea goalkeeper Jamal Blackman has today joined Championship side Leeds United on a season-long loan, both clubs have confirmed via their official websites.

The 24-year-old, who spent last season at Sheffield United, will spend a second loan spell in the Yorkshire.

Blackman kept 9 clean sheets last term picking up 33 appearances with his former club.

He told Leeds United’s official website: “I’m looking forward to starting this new season it’s going to be a really good season. I’ve been speaking with the manager and the staff, then coming up from Chelsea looked a good step for me to be in the right direction.

Obviously I have to try to push as much as possible to be close to the first team. Leeds are such a big club where to show what you can do on the bigger stages”.

Blackman joins Chelsea loanee Lewis Baker at Elland Road ahead of 2018/19 campaign.
