New striker wants to lead Leeds to Premier League

New striker wants to lead Leeds to Premier League

Young new Leeds United striker Robbie McDaid says he has signed for the club to help lead them back to the Premier League.

The 17-year-old striker has arrived at Elland Road after agreeing a two-year deal from Northern Irish side Glenavon last season.

McDaid has made ten senior career appearances already despite his tender age and he made a name for himself with Glenavon last season when he came off the bench with twenty minutes remaining to score twice in the 4-2 local derby win against Portadown.

His form brought him to the attention of Leeds, earning him a successful trial with the club. He has also represented his country at under-19 level in the past year and he is now ready to work hard at Elland Road as he looks to progress.

Speaking to LUTV, McDaid said, "I`m an old fashioned centre forward. I am physical, I will suit the English game and that is what I am all about.

"It is a massive step up for me but it is just a matter of working hard. I need to work hard and I need to be disciplined. I need to want it every day. I want to be here, I want to work hard and I want to progress.

"My aim is to cement my position. I want to be in the under-21`s by Christmas and then I want to progress. I am going to come in everyday and I want to get better and improve every single day. I am not coming here for a two-year holiday. I am here to progress and I want to play for Leeds United and I want to take Leeds to the Premiership."


McDaid will return to his former club Glenavon in July when Leeds visit Northern Ireland on July 30th for a friendly game. The game was arranged as part of the deal that saw McDaid make the switch to Leeds.
