The former Leeds striker believes that the Northern Ireland international has been one of the best players for Marcelo Bielsa’s side so far this season.
Whelan has been impressed with the displays produced by the 28-year-old in defence and in central midfield despite being a winger by trade.
Whelan said about Dallas on BBC Radio Leeds: “He has probably been one of the stand-outs since the start of the season.
“At right-back, he was excellent, centre-midfield excellent, his work-rate, his fitness, his contribution on and off the ball has been amazing this season. He just looks like he is playing with a smile on his face.”
Whelan said about Klich on BBC Radio Leeds: “He is not different to Patrick Bamford, I guess.
“Sometimes you go through that spell when you can’t score, but you have got to contribute in a different way. He has been doing that this season. He has now got his rewards.”
According to WhoScored, Dallas has scored one goal in 19 appearances in the Championship for Leeds so far this season.
Leeds are going strong in the Championship at the moment and have picked up 40 points from 19 matches.
The Whites will take on Huddersfield Town away from home in the Championship this coming weekend.
