Following Leeds United's 2-1 win against Sheffield Wednesday, Neil Redfearn has opened up about his ambitions at Elland Road.

Leeds United manager Neil Redfearn has spoken about the future of his club, in comments published by the Whites’ official Twitter account.

The Leeds boss was speaking after his side’s 2-1 win away to Sheffield Wednesday, a match that saw Charlie Taylor and Steve Morison net for the visitors after Chris Maguire had put the Owls ahead.

The win was Leeds’ first in seven matches but despite their recent poor form the squad holds considerable promise.

That is something Redfearn is well aware of, and he has made it clear where he sees his side heading in the future, which will please those fans hoping he stays on for the long haul.

“I want to be at Leeds United and be successful,” Redfearn said. “I don’t want to be mid-table. This side can get out of this division.”

It is fighting talk indeed, and while Leeds will remain in the Championship for at least another year, they certainly have the young talent to help fire them into the promotion places next season.

It is clear where Redfearn’s focus lies, and that is getting this great club back to where it belongs sooner rather than later.
