Vinnie Jones has expressed his desire to see Leeds United be promoted next season on Twitter.

Jones rejoined the social media site yesterday, and he quickly sent a message to his former side.

Jones says that he hopes Leeds get out of the Championship next term, as they seek to return to the Premier League for the first time since 2004.

Jones remains a popular figure at Leeds, even though he only spent one year at Elland Road as a player.

Leeds go into next campaign aiming to make it into the play off spaces, with Garry Monk at the helm.

The Whites have already promised part-refunds to anybody who has purchased a season ticket, if they are not in the top six by the end of next season.

Former Leeds boss Steve Evans has insisted that he would have guided the Yorkshire side into the play offs, and it is clear that Monk has been appointed with the intention of helping the side make a promotion push.

Leeds finished in 13th place in last season’s Championship, meaning they have a lot of work to do if they are to compete in the upper echelons of the second tier next term.
