Bridcutt was named in Gordon Strachan's most recent squad and feels all he really needed was game-time to prove his quality.
The on-loan Sunderland midfielder told LUTV: "I'm very happy. All I needed was games to prove that I was ready to be back in the squad. This is what Leeds United have given me, a great opportunity to showcase that."
Meanwhile, Liam Cooper was also picked and he said: "I can't wait to get going. It's always nice to see performances rewarded but it doesn't stop here and you've got to work hard, hopefully I can do that."
The call-ups are reward for consistent form (even though there has been the odd blip from both this season) and their confidence will be sky high after two wins a row for Leeds in recent weeks.
Next up for United is a trip to Blackburn Rovers and Steve Evans has rightly made a big deal of the fact the Yorkshire club could win three in a row for the first time this season.
It would be a rare feat considering how tough and evenly matched the Championship is and Leeds will need both Bridcutt and Cooper at their best should they make the team again v Rovers.
