The pair will join up with the development squad after signing six-month deals at Oakwell.

Kebbie, 21, learned his craft at the Leeds United Academy and has since spent time at Spanish giants Atletico Madrid and Barcelona.

"Elliot is a very talented player; he's a modern day full back who likes to get forward with great pace and power,” said Head of Academy Recruitment Bobby Hassell.

“I believe he has all the attributes to push for a place in the first team."

And the full-back is joined by Mottley-Henry who has recently been on trial at the club.

The winger shined during his 45-minute stint in the Reds’ first pre-season game against Stalybridge Celtic and has been rewarded with a deal at the club.

The 18-year-old played two first team matches at Bradford City before being released.

Since appearing at Oakwell he has surpassed Kayden Jackson and Marc Roberts to become the fastest player at the club.

Hassell added: “Dylan has unbelievable pace while also being very athletic; he’s been able to slot straight in and train with the first team this past week.

“He also played 45 minutes against Stalybridge and showed fantastic potential. “He fits the DNA of what the first team are looking for and I believe we have a top prospect on our hands."
