LUFC Ayling Buzzing To Sign New Leeds Deal

LUFC Ayling Buzzing To Sign New Leeds Deal

Leeds United defender Luke Ayling says he is buzzing after signing a new deal with the club.

The 26-year-old, who joined Leeds in the summer of 2016 from Bristol City, has signed a new four-year deal tying him to the club until the summer of 2021.

Ayling has been a regular in the Leeds side since his arrival, his appearance against Reading on Saturday was his 58 for the club, and he is the only ever-present in the Championship so far this season.

The former Arsenal trainee says Leeds feels like home having now settled in the area and it is great to finally get the deal done.

"I`m buzzing to have signed and now you are stuck with me for another four years," Ayling told the Leeds official website .

"It is great to finally get it done, we have been speaking since late August, but obviously there has been a lot going on with the transfer window.

"My baby has been born here, I`ve bought a house nearby and this really feels like home now.

"Obviously when I signed, a few people didn`t know me, but I knew I could play at this level, I`ve come in and tried my best and given my all in every game and I think this is why the fans like me.

"Since joining I feel like I`ve held the right-back spot to myself and fought some really good full-backs off and hopefully I can keep doing it.

"In the last 18 months I feel I`ve been in the best form of my career, barring the last few games, but I`m sure I will get back to that level."

Ayling will hope to line up against his former club Bristol City on Saturday when Leeds visit Ashton Gate.
