Leeds United youngster Ross Killock happy to be back training

Elland Road Revie Stand

The Leeds United defender has a big campaign ahead of him as he bids to earn a new contract.

Leeds United defender Ross Killock has a big few months ahead of him, with his current contract at Elland Road expiring in the summer and a first-team debut seemingly no closer.

The 21-year-old is predominantly a centre-back although he can also play at right-back or in midfield if required, and having been out of the fold for a while he was clearly happy to be back training with the Leeds first-team this week.

Leeds’ senior players were training under the watchful eye of recently appointed manager Steve Evans, and Killock later took to Twitter to express his pleasure at being back on the field.

“Good to be back out today,” the youngster wrote, and he will no doubt be hoping he impressed Evans enough to ultimately earn a new contract at the club, even if a senior appearance is still very much for the future.

Killock has excelled for the under-21s for some time now, and while that is the level he is likely to remain at in the short term, he certainly has the talent to excel at Elland Road further down the line.

For now it is all about training and doing his best to impress, and from there anything is possible…
