Alex Mowatt leaves Leeds United

Leeds United has confirmed that Alex Mowatt has transferred to Barnsley for an undisclosed fee.

The 21-year-old midfielder, who is originally from South Yorkshire, only had six months remaining on his contract.

Barnsley head coach Paul Heckingbottom is understood to have identified Mowatt as a replacement for Conor Hourihane, who left the Tykes for Aston Villa yesterday.
