Tom Lees is a young centre back who signed his first professional contract for Leeds United in January 2009. A product of the club?s academy set-up, Tom moved up to work with the senior squad in the summer of 2009 and spent the whole of the 2009-10 season on loan to Accrington. It was a similar story in 2010-11 when he spent the season on loan with Bury; Tom was a near ever-present in the line-up, principally featuring in the centre of defence as he helped the Shakers to gain promotion as runners-up in League Two. He signed a new contract for Leeds in December 2010.
Everton manager Ronald Koeman has expressed interest in bringing Wayne Rooney back to his boyhood club.
