New long-term Leeds deal for Sutcliffe

Liam Sutcliffe has signed a new four-year deal at Leeds.

Sutcliffe, 22, already has 114 games under his belt after making his debut back in 2013, and is now committed to the club until the end of 2021.

He said: “I am really pleased to have got it all sorted. People have been asking for a few months what I am planning for the future and I have had to keep my thoughts to myself. I am over the moon to have agreed a new deal now.

“Brian McDermott and I have been talking over the last few months and the more I spoke to him, the more I wanted to commit myself to this club. I am a Leeds boy and I love playing for this club so I am really looking forward to the future.”

Head Coach McDermott added: “The significance of Liam signing for us is big. We know all our young, quality players have a number of options to go elsewhere and the fact he has decided to stay with us is testimony to the environment that has been created at our club. 

“We are excited to be working with Liam for the next four years at least and he is excited about being here.

“Kevin Sinfield always used to say that the shirt at Leeds always weighs that bit heavier on this group of players than at other clubs because of the level of scrutiny and expectation that comes with being a Leeds player and I think that is still the case.

“We are currently in a transitional period and we are in a very good position within that process.”
