One of those players recently released by Leeds United has found a new club.

Former Leeds United player Aidy White has been speaking to Rotherham United’s official website after completing his free transfer to the club.

The 23-year-old was highly-rated at Elland Road but injuries robbed him of a considerable amount of playing-time and it was decided last month that Leeds would not be renewing his contract.

However it has not taken the left-back-cum-winger long to find a new club, with Championship rivals Rotherham bringing him in subject to Football League ratification.

White has now had his say on his move, speaking about how it felt to leave Leeds and his early impressions of his new club.

“It was sad leaving Leeds but I think that this is what I need to kick-start my career,” White said. “I need to get playing games and while I’m still young at 23, I’d say I’m experienced.

On Rotherham he said, “The club has been very successful over the last few years with back-to-back promotions and then last season in the Championship. They’ve been brilliant and they’re holding their own.”

Rotherham finished last season 21st in the Championship, but they will be hoping to make further progress in the upcoming campaign and White has the talent to play a vital role in that.

He actually made his long-awaited return for Leeds against the side he has just signed for, and after seven years and 106 matches at Elland Road it is time for the wide-man to take the next step in a career that still offers much.
