Northern Ireland star Dallas puts pen to paper on four-year contract

Northern Ireland international Stuart Dallas says he’s "over the moon" about his new club deal with Leeds United. 

The versatile 28-year-old has put pen to paper on a four-year contract, keeping him at Elland Road until the summer of 2023.

Dallas earned his 41st cap for Northern Ireland after he was included in Michael O’Neill’s starting XI in Monday’s 2-0 UEFA Euro 2020 qualifier defeat against Germany. 

He moved to the Yorkshire club from Brentford in 2015 and since then has netted 15 times in 151 appearances for the Championship outfit.

And the the former Coagh United and Crusaders player has expressed his delight after signing up with Leeds for another four years and highlighted his development under current boss Marcelo Bielsa.

"Firstly, for the club to see me as an important figure and to reward me with a new contract, I am delighted with that,” he told Leeds United’s website. 

“It’s a good feeling to commit my future. I have been here a while now and there's nowhere else I want to play at.

"It's where I call home, for me it's home, for my family it's home and I am delighted.”

He added: “Marcelo Bielsa has been massive in helping me. His everyday training is different from anything else and has really helped me.

“This is probably the best football I have played in my career and we have really healthy competition here, which is what we need and makes the team successful.”
