Leeds United assistant manager Pep Clotet says that he is happy with the improvement that he has seen from the Yorkshire side’s squad during their tour of Ireland over pre-season.

Leeds have spent the last week in Ireland, and they have played matches against Shelbourne and Shamrock Rovers.

Leeds beat Shelbourne 2-1 in their first non-competitive match of the campaign, and they followed that up with a 3-0 victory over Shamrock.

There was a clear progression between the two performances, and Clotet says that he is satisfied with how the week away went.

Leeds flew home from their tour of Ireland yesterday, and they will now step up their preparations for the new season back at Thorp Arch.

Leeds also have friendly matches against Guisley and Peterborough United to concentrate on this week.

Leeds are aiming to finish in the top six next term, as Garry Monk's side look to end their long wait for a return to the Premier League.

The Whites’ first competitive match of the new campaign comes against Queens Park Rangers at Loftus Road.
