The Whites have confirmed a home friendly against Blackburn on July 25, in what will be their only pre-season game at Elland Road, either side of trips to York and Burnley on July 12 and August 1 respectively.

Grayson told the club's official website: "It's an important part of our pre-season plans.

"We have two games confirmed now against Premier League opposition and it's always a good test for the players to come up against teams from that level.

"It's also good to get a feel of Elland Road before the season starts and hopefully there will be a decent crowd for the game.

"Pre-season is an important time because you lay the foundations for what you need and what you expect over the coming nine months or so."
