Uwe Rosler completed a reunion with winger Stuart Dallas earlier today.

Leeds United manager Uwe Rosler has told the club's official website that he is 'very happy' to have signed Stuart Dallas this afternoon

The Leeds boss has brought in the likes of Ross Turnbull, Sol Bamba, Tom Adeyemi, Chris Wood and Lee Erwin, but he was always lacking a winger - but now he has got his man with Dallas.

The Northern Ireland international has penned a three-year deal at Elland Road having left Brentford for Leeds, reuniting with his former manager Rosler in the process.

Dallas is now set to play a key role on the left hand side of the Leeds midfield, with Rosler keen to deploy a 4-3-3 system that he had so much success with at Brentford.

Speaking to the Leeds official website, Rosler admitted that he was delighted to land Dallas, who he called a 'very exciting player'.

"We’re very happy – finally we got our wide player," said Rosler. "Stuart Dallas is a very exciting young player. I went over to Belfast and met him with his parents three or four years ago. At that point he was a semi-professional and he came a long way in a short space of time."

"Like the other signings we’ve made, he has his best years in front of him. He can play on the left and on the right. He can interchange positions, he’s an intelligent player. What he can really add to our team is goals. Last year he scored eight goals in a very successful team," he added.

With Sam Byram on the right hand side and Dallas on the left, new striker Chris Wood will have a consistent supply line that Leeds didn't have last term.

Given that Dallas is familiar with Rosler's methods, the 24-year-old is expected to hit the ground running at Elland Road, and he looks to be the ideal signing for Leeds considering his potential and Rosler's need for a consistent winger on the left hand side.
