Leeds United Sunday transfer info

19-year-old centre-back Cresswell joined Championship Millwall side on a season-long loan with Whites team-mate Jamie Shackleton and the pair both started Saturday’s campaign opener at home against Stoke City.

After just 12 minutes, Cresswell was sent in for a Lions corner and applied a header ball to George Honeyman’s delivery to score his first senior goal in professional football.

Cresswell was then booked seven minutes before the break, but the defender surprisingly doubled his tally to score the game’s second goal in the 64th minute, smashing in another corner, this time taken by Scott Malone.

Whites team-mate Shackleton was then taken off as part of a 76th-minute triple substitution by boss Gary Rowett, but Cresswell remained on the pitch to also help the Lions keep a clean sheet as part of a 2-0 victory.

No other side in the Championship have won by two clear goals, so Millwall are now top of the division with Cresswell as top scorer with two goals.
