Leeds signing Wootton has no Man Utd second thoughts

Scott Wootton hasn't thought twice after quitting Manchester United for Leeds United.

Wootton, 21, who has penned a three-year deal after checking in as Leeds boss Brian McDermott's fourth summer signing, makes an instant debut at Ipswich this afternoon.

The highly-rated star said: "Of course it is up to the fans to show what they think of me but I'm sure they won't hold it against me that I have come from Manchester United.

"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.

Wootton says that the decision to switch Uniteds was a no-brainer Wootton says that the decision to switch Uniteds was a no-brainer

"I have had a good education at Old Trafford but I am a Leeds player now and I shall be giving everything for the shirt. That's all I can do."

Wootton is well aware there is history between the two Uniteds but said: "It wasn't a difficult decision for me to come here.

"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."
