Defender needed a fresh change after leaving Leeds
Defender Lee Peltier says it was time for a fresh start after leaving Leeds United on Monday.
The 27-year-old has signed for local neighbours Huddersfield Town on a three-year deal after terminating his contract with Leeds by mutual consent.
Peltier finished last season away from Leeds, enjoying a loan spell at Nottingham Forest and it was this that made him realise it was time to move on.
Speaking to the Yorkshire Evening Post , Peltier said, "I just think I need to move on now.
"When I went to Forest on loan last season, I didn`t realise how much I wasn`t enjoying my football until I joined them.
"I really enjoyed myself there and after that, I felt it was time for a fresh change, obviously with everything that was going on and things like that (at Leeds)."
Peltier joined Leeds from Leicester City in the summer of 2012, he was made club captain in his first season at Elland Road, and he made 48 appearances as he played all the way across the back four.
Last season, Peltier was again a regular in the side and it came as a surprise when he was loaned to Nottingham Forest in March despite the only other recognised right back Sam Byram struggling with injury.
Despite having a year remaining on his deal at Elland Road, the player and club decided to part ways, allowing Peltier to re-join Huddersfield Town, three-years after leaving them.
Peltier made 75 appearances for Leeds during his two seasons at Elland Road and he scored his only goal in the 1-1 draw at Blackpool on Boxing Day.
