“I hope not anyway because I can assure them right now that I shall be giving my all for this club and trying all I can to get us back where we belong – in the Premier League.

“It was quite straightforward, in fact and I am just delighted to be a Leeds player. It ticks all the boxes so far as I am concerned.”
