Glasgow Rangers star Steven Davis and Sheffield United midfielder Oliver Norwood have congratulated Leeds United winger Stuart Dallas on signing a new contract.

Dallas has signed a four-year contract with Leeds and has committed his long-term future to the Championship club.

The 28-year-old winger has been at the Whites since 2015 and has also added versatility to his game, having developed into a full-back under head coach Marcelo Bielsa.

 

Dallas has taken to Twitter and Instagram to express his delight at signing a new contract with Leeds, and his Northern Ireland compatriots Davis and Norwood have congratulated him.

Davis - who signed a permanent contract in the summer transfer window after spending the second half of last season on loan at Rangers from Southampton in the Premier League - plays with Dallas for the Northern Ireland national football team.
