LUFC Warnock big influence on Lees decision

LUFC Warnock big influence on Lees decision

Leeds United defender Tom Lees says Neil Warnock has been a huge influence on his decision to sign a new improved deal with the club.

The 21 year old has signed a new four-year deal with the club after impressing Warnock since the manager`s arrival at Elland Road in February.

Lees says that he is excited by what Warnock has had to say to him and what he is hoping to do at the club in the summer as he hopes to prepare a squad capable of pushing for promotion next season.

Speaking on LUTV, Lees said, "The way that he is speaking and the things that he is saying about going forward, I liked what I heard, so I am now looking forward to seeing how it progresses and I am looking forward to next season.

"It is nice to be offered a new deal and I cannot thank the manager enough. He has been a really big influence in the time that he has been at the club. He has only been here a short time but I feel like I have learnt a lot."


Lees still had three years remaining on his existing deal at Elland Road, after only signing a new deal last September following an impressive start to his Leeds career.

A product of the Leeds United academy, Lees says Warnock has been a huge influence on his career in his short time at Elland Road and he is already looking forward to returning for pre-season at the start of July. "His mental attitude towards the game is spot on. I think he will try to install a positive and winning mentality when we get back. I am looking forward to pre-season.

"I am looking forward to seeing what the club is going to do over the next couple of weeks, heading into July and bringing in some new players that the manager feels will have the right mentality. I should be an exciting time,"
added Lees.

Despite only being 21 he is now closing in on 150 senior appearances.

Lees made 45 appearances for Leeds in his breakthrough season at Elland Road after spending the previous two seasons on loan with Accrington Stanley and Bury.

He helped Bury win promotion during his season with the club on loan and he was named the Players Player of the Year at the end of the season.
