Leeds United already improving summer signing Stuart Dallas

As Leeds United prepare to face Brentford this weekend, winger Stuart Dallas is already excelling for his new club,

Leeds United winger Stuart Dallas will be reunited with former club Brentford this weekend for the first time.

The Northern Ireland international has settled straight into life at his new side since making a switch in early August, answering a need the Whites had for a left winger.

Dallas has played an important role in Leeds' unbeaten start to the Premier League campaign, even outperforming his displays for Brentford last season in the limited sample size so far.

The 24-year-old ranks higher in key areas, in terms of shots per game, dribbles, ball recoveries and accurate crosses.

He has been playing a key role for Northern Ireland too over the past week, helping them retain their place at the top of the Euro 2016 qualifying group.

He featured for Brentford last season as they beat Leeds home and away, keeping a clean sheet in both matches, and fans of the Yorkshire side will hope his summer switch will play a part in helping the result is reversed around this weekend.
