Leeds United midfielder Eunan O’Kane has suggested to The Yorkshire Evening Post that his best is yet to come.

O’Kane joined Championship club Leeds from Premier League outfit Bournemouth in the summer transfer window.

The 26-year-old was not an automatic starter for the Whites, but the midfielder has now established himself as a key player in Garry Monk’s side.

Leeds won five of the first six games in which O’Kane played, as reported by The Yorkshire Evening Post, and the Republic of Ireland international will be important for the Whites as the season progresses.

The former Torquay United midfielder has suggested that Leeds fans have yet to see the best of him. O’Kane has said that he will get better as he gets more playing time.

“It’s been okay for me,” O’Kane told The Yorkshire Evening Post. “I came in and the team hit a run of form and as a group we’ve been good.

“On personal terms, I feel like I’m not quite myself yet. It’s been a long time since I played this many games but the more I play the better I’ll become. That’s the plan anyway.”
