Leeds United defender Tom Lees says he hopes to be part of manager Neil Warnock`s plans next season.
The product of the youth academy has been an almost ever present this season having cut his teeth in professional football in the previous two seasons on loan at Accrington Stanley and Bury.
Lees was named the clubs young player of the year at the end of season awards dinner on Saturday night and he is hoping he has done enough to impress Warnock since the manager`s arrival in February.
Speaking in the Yorkshire Evening Post, Lees said, "Hopefully, I can contribute to a winning one next year.
"I`d say the season has surpassed expectations for me, yes. I didn`t have a clue what I was coming back to in the summer, so it`s been good.
"After meeting the gaffer in the week, hopefully I`ll be in his plans for next year.
"I`ve definitely learned a lot defensively under the gaffer. Just about the whole physical side of the game really and getting back to rough basics and defending properly. It`s a case of do what you want, as long as you keep it safe."
Lees signed an extension to his contract in September after impressing in the first two months of the season, contracting him to Leeds until the summer of 2015.
The 21 year old made 45 appearances for Leeds in his first season in the first team after making his Leeds debut as a substitute in the Carling Cup win over Bradford City in the first week of the season.
The squad are due to meet with Warnock on Wednesday, when the manager will deliver the news whether he sees them as part of his plans for next season. "I`d like to think I`m in his plans and when I see him he might confirm that. But I`m sure everyone knows he`s putting out a list in the week, so we`ll see where we lie then," added Lees.
Lees versatility could help, with the young defender playing at right back as well as in the centre of defence this season.
