LUFC Bruce hoping for new deal

LUFC Bruce hoping for new deal

Leeds United defender Alex Bruce is hoping he has done enough to earn himself a new deal at Elland Road.

Bruce is out of contract in the summer after a stop/start two seasons with Leeds and he wants to do as well as he can and kick on next season.

Speaking in the Yorkshire Evening Post, Bruce said, "My future is up in the air and like every other player who is out of contract at a club, it`s a difficult time. I don`t really know what is going to happen, but all I can do when called upon and while my contract is running still, is do as well as I can.
"I`m looking forward to getting this season out of the way and kicking on next season - hopefully that will be at Leeds United. But if not, I`ll be trying to do as well as I can wherever I will be.

"It`s a season which has been frustrating for everyone involved. But I`m sure with Neil Warnock at the helm that next year the club will be moving in the right direction."


The defender made 25 appearances in his first season at Elland Road but seemed to be made the scapegoat by previous manager Simon Grayson following the 3-0 defeat at Swansea last February, something Bruce feels bitter about. "My time at Leeds has been a little bit bittersweet. I don`t think Simon Grayson helped me this season.

"In my first year at Leeds, I think I did okay. I was in the team and we were doing all right. For a new signing to get dropped and for him to treat me the way he treated me was a little bit disappointing,"
added Bruce

Bruce looked to be on his way out of Elland Road earlier this season when he joined League One side Huddersfield Town on loan with a view to a permanent move.

The 27 year old made three appearances for Huddersfield before being recalled from his loan by Leeds over the festive period after an injury crisis in the Leeds defence.

He made his first appearance of the season in the win over Burnley on January 2nd but suffered a hamstring late in the game that kept him sidelined.

Bruce returned in the 3-2 win over Doncaster Rovers in February with Warnock watching his first game from the stands.

He started Warnock`s first game in charge the following week but suffered an injury early in the game that ruled him out for a further month.

Bruce has made four starts since and it will be interesting to see whether he has done enough to earn himself a new contract.
