LUFC Thompson over the moon to sign new deal

LUFC Thompson over the moon to sign new deal

Young Leeds United midfielder Zac Thompson says he is over the moon to have signed a new contract with the club.

The 19-year-old put pen to paper on a new three-year deal this week and after struggling to break into the side since the arrival of manager Neil Warnock in February, he is ready to knuckle down and fight for a place in the side.

Speaking on the official website, Thompson said, "I`m over the moon knowing I have a future here. Hopefully I can keep working hard and get in and around the squad."

Thompson arrived at Elland Road in January 2011 after his release from Everton, signing an initial six-month loan deal.

The versatile youngster impressed enough to earn a new one-year deal in the summer of 2011 after being a regular in both the reserve and under 18 sides.

He made his first appearance for the side in the clubs first home game of the following season against Middlesbrough when he came off the bench and he also appeared in the next home game against Hull City from the bench.

The midfielder made his first start for the club in the Carling Cup win at Doncaster at the end of August.

As well as making three appearances for the first team, his early season form in the reserves earned him a new two-year deal in October 2011.

Thompson showed his versatility at the turn of the year when he filled in at right back, starting all five of Leeds games in January before the sacking of Simon Grayson at the end of that month.

He had to wait until April for his first appearance for new boss Neil Warnock. He started the game at Reading and it lasted just twelve minutes before he was shown a straight red card in the defeat.

Thompson returned from suspension and started Leeds last two games of the season against Cardiff City and Leicester City.

In his first season with the first team, he finished the season making 11 appearances including 8 starts.

He has made just one appearance so far this season when he came on as a late substitute in the Capital One Cup win over Oxford United in August. He has also been an unused substitute in the games with Hull City, Everton and Bolton Wanderers.
