New Lees deal for Leeds

15 December 2010 03:00
Tom Lees has spoken of his delight after signing a new contract at Leeds. The defender, who has yet to make his senior debut for the Whites, has extended his current deal by two-and-a-half-years after impressing on loan at Bury this season and is over the moon to have put pen to paper. "At my age it`s a really good commitment from the club. I`ve obviously made a commitment to them too but I wanted to put pen to paper as soon as I could," he told the Yorkshire Evening Post. "I`d heard a few rumblings about a new contract and I think a couple of clubs had enquired about me, to see what was happening. But if the club want to protect their young players then that`s what they`re going to do. "It seemed right for both parties and I`d like to think that it`s partly down to what I`ve been doing at Bury. I want to be a Leeds player in the future and I want to play for their first team but I don`t see this as a guarantee of anything."
