Leeds United Defender Aidan White Signs New Contract

Leeds United defender Aidan White has penned a new three-year deal with the Championship Club.

The 20-year-old who came through the Club’s Apprenticeship programme has made over 60 appearances for the Club since first turning professional in 2008.

“It’s fantastic to get everything sorted,” White told the Club website.

“I’ve been at the Club since I was eight and I didn’t want to leave. I came back in pre-season wanting to stay.”

“I spoke to the Manager who said he wanted me to stay and that we would try and get things done this week. That was a real positive and I’m looking to crack on for the season now.”

White was shifted from his preferred left-back position to a roaming role on the right side of midfield following Warnock’s arrival and admits he is happy to be a utility man.

“I’ve spoken with the gaffer and I think he sees that attacking role but also that I can play full-back if needed,” White added.

“He talked about my being part of his plans, which was great. He has the experience, the squad he’s building is more than capable and hopefully it will be an exciting season.”

Leeds boss Neil Warnock added: “Aidy is a young player who we have high hopes for and we’re delighted he’s agreed to a new deal.”

“He’s good going forward and he’s good defensively, and he’s a big part of our plans here.”
