Clayton out to impress at Leeds

02 Sep 2010 - 14:59:55

Former Manchester City midfielder Adam Clayton believes he can now watch his career progress after completing a permanent move to Leeds United before the transfer window closed.

Clayton, who enjoyed a lengthy loan at Carlisle United last term, has penned a three-year deal with the Elland Road-based outfit and he can't wait to get going after a brief temporary spell with the Championship club at the start of the season.

"Leeds is a massive club - just as big as Manchester City. It's definitely a place and an environment where I can learn and get better as a player," he told the club's official website.

"Everything at Leeds is geared up for the Premier League, the stadium, the facilities, the tremendous atmosphere, the fans, so I think it is definitely somewhere that I can grow and develop as a player.

"When you come on a month's loan you can feel as though you have to move the earth sometimes to impress and having got on only a couple of times it was in training where I was going to have to do that.

"It looks like I did that and, hopefully, I will be deserving of the contract. I was delighted to get the deal done and now I can't wait to get my career with Leeds started.

"If we keep fighting for every point, keep on scrapping, I think we can be there or thereabouts this season."
