There has been some great news for Leeds United fans this afternoon.
Leeds United have confirmed that Lewis Cook has signed a new two-year deal at the club.
The news was broken on Leeds’ official Twitter account, which posted a picture of the midfielder putting pen to paper along with the club’s owner Massimo Cellino.
Speaking to LUTV after the deal was complete, the 18-year-old said, “I’m over the moon. All the hard work of this season has paid off. I’m delighted to sign with Leeds United and I’ve really enjoyed this season.”
Cook has had a breakthrough campaign to remember featuring 38 times this season before injury brought a premature end to his campaign.
In that time he put in a string of excellent displays and ensured he was one of the first names on the team-sheet for manager Neil Redfearn.
He has also been capped at England under-19 level following his recent exploits and the news that he has committed his future to Leeds is excellent for all concerned.
When asked if he took long to decide before signing on the dotted line, the Leeds teenager said, “Nothing at all. I’ve enjoyed my season, I’ve enjoyed my football. No regrets.”
Now it is up to Cellino and Redfearn to add to their youthful and hugely promising squad, to ensure they make a real attempt at promotion back to the top flight next season.
