Two In One Out On Deadline Day

We are pleased to announce the re-signing of Leeds United’s young midfielder Alex Purver for a loan period until 29th April.

In his previous spell with Guiseley, which ran from August to Boxing Day, the 21 year-old made 21 appearances, including 19 starts, and scored two goals.

With his all action style he made a big impact and quickly became a fans’ favourite.

Purver, who can also play at right-back, has yet to make a senior appearance for Leeds, but he played in 33 games for their under-21 team last season.

He signed a new one-year deal with the Championship club in June 2016.

Welcome back Alex!

Also joining the club is right back Michael Taylor on loan from Leeds United. 

The 19 year-old defender captained United’s U18 side last season and signed a one year professional contract in the summer.

Taylor describes himself as “A mix of an old-fashioned full-back who likes to get stuck in, with a modern twist of getting forward.

“I do like to get forward when I can and attack down the right.”

Welcome to the club Michael!

We can confirm today that winger Joel Logan has joined FC Halifax Town on loan. We wish Joel well for his time at the Shay.
