LUFC Pearce looking forward to Leeds challenge

LUFC Pearce looking forward to Leeds challenge

New Leeds United signing Jason Pearce says he is delighted to be at Leeds and he wants to help return the club to the Premier League.

Pearce became Leeds boss Neil Warnock`s first signing in what is promising to be a busy summer in the transfer market.

The 24 year old has signed a four-year deal for an undisclosed fee from Portsmouth and the defender says he cannot wait to be part of what is happening at Elland Road under Warnock this summer.

Speaking on Yorkshire Radio, Pearce said, "I`m delighted to be here and I can`t wait to move forward now. When you look at the fans here, they want to be back where they belong, and I hope I can help.

"I`ve got drive and want to give 100 per cent. The gaffer wants to bring in some good players and I want to be part of that."


Despite his relegation from the championship with Portsmouth, Pearce captained the side and led by example on the field.

The no-nonsense defender claimed seven out of nine end of season player of the year awards.

The defender is now looking forward to his career at Elland Road and working with Warnock. "For me now, personally, I`ve got the opportunity at a massive club with a great gaffer who wants to bring in a lot of new players. I`m really looking forward to it,"added Pearce.

Despite his age, Pearce is already a vastly experienced defender having made almost 250 appearances with Portsmouth and previous club Bournemouth.

Pearce enjoyed success at Bournemouth, helping the south coast side to promotion to League One in 2010.

The following season they came close to making it back to back promotions before eventually losing out in the play offs to Huddersfield Town.

His form with Bournemouth saw him claim their player of the year and a move along the south coast to Portsmouth.

Pearce missed the first three games of last season for Portsmouth through suspension following his sending off in the play offs against Huddersfield but he was an ever present from them until the last game of the season at Nottingham Forest, when he was left out to avoid injury ahead of his move to Leeds.
