Stuart Dallas has already been training with his new teammates.

New Leeds United signing Stuart Dallas has been pictured in training with his new teammates.

The winger clinched his move to Leeds from Brentford on Tuesday, as confirmed by the club's official website.

Dallas is in many ways the signing Leeds have been craving all summer, with their lack of width evident last season, having to push full-backs out of position to address their shortcomings.

The fact the Northern Irishman has gone straight into training bodes well, indicating he is likely to be ready to go straight into the match day squad this weekend.

Leeds host Burnley, hoping for three points to get their campaign off to a perfect start, but knowing it will be far from easy against the Lancashire side, who are just months removed from playing in the Premier League.

The alternative to starting Dallas would be giving an opportunity to Souleymane Doukara, who started out wide in the 2-0 win against Everton last weekend, and has done well in pre-season, seizing his chance to re-establish himself in Uwe Rosler's side after falling out of favour under Neil Redfearn.
