Howson Signs New Leeds Contract

Jonny Howson has signed a new contract with Leeds United that ties him to the club until 2011.

The young midfielder was a rising star over the course of last season, cumulating in becoming the last-ditch hero as his thunderous bobbler fired United into a League One playoff final that unfortunately his team-mates forgot to show up to.

In an added twist, should Leeds United gain promotion (read: when) back to the Championship, Howson`s contract will be extended by a further year, taking him up until the year of the London Olympics, 2012. Boss Gary McAllister was obviously delighted with the news, as he told Leedsunited.com.

"We're all delighted. He's a player who has come through the Academy and is a local lad which is a big plus," he said.

"He's got an eye for goal and he has a nice mix to his game.

"He has a lot of potential and a lot of ammunition to develop his game and I'm pleased I've got the opportunity to help his development."
