Lees extends Leeds United Contract

Leeds United have agreed an extended contract with youngster Tom Lees.The 21-year-old has agreed terms on a deal to stay at Elland Road until 2016 after becoming a mainstay of the Leeds defence under both Neil Warnock and his predecessor Simon Grayson.Lees missed just five of United’s 50 games in 2011-12 and the new deal, his third in a couple of years after agreeing improved terms in both 2010 and last September, will bring his salary more in line with other senior members of the squad.The new contract is reward for an impressive year in the first team after two years on loan at Bury in League Two. He is expected to be fit to start the new campaign in August after recently undergoing surgery to repair the broken nose he suffered during the closing weeks of last season.
