Guiseley AFC have signed young midfielder Alex Purver on loan until January 2nd 2017 from Championship neighbours Leeds United.

Purver, who is yet to play for Leeds at senior level, was a regular in the under-21s last season, making thirty-three appearances and captaining the side on several occasions.

The 20-year-old, who signed a one-year contract extension in June, trained with Garry Monk’s first-team during pre-season.

However, spending time out on loan at National League level is seen as important to Purver`s development.
