Thomas Christiansen has tweeted Leeds United duo Liam Cooper and Stuart Dallas after they received new contracts with the club yesterday.

Dallas and Cooper have both penned long-term extensions to their current deals at Leeds after excellent starts to the campaign.

 

Christiansen worked with both Dallas and Cooper during his time at Elland Road.

And the former Leeds boss messaged the pair saying that their new deals were well merited.

Dallas has been converted to a right-back at Leeds this season by Marcelo Bielsa and his form in the position has been nothing short of remarkable.

The Northern Irish international has covered for Luke Ayling brilliantly, and may now actually be first choice in the position.

Cooper, meanwhile, has really grown into his centre-back role at Elland Road.

The Scottish international is now one of the first names on Bielsa’s teamsheet, with his dominant performances in Leeds’ defence impressing.
