Leeds winger Stuart Dallas has signed a new three-year-deal with the club following a very impressive start to the season. Dallas has come back stronger under Thomas Christiansen after a very poor season last time out.
Dallas signed from Brentford two years ago as one of Uwe Rosler’s major signings, costing around £1.6 million. He had helped the Bees get to the play-offs the season before, and joined Leeds with a bubbling reputation. He impressed in his first year with the club, ending it by playing under Steve Evans. Then a big moment in his Leeds career to date, the Euro 2016 campaign with Northern Ireland.
Dallas never recovered from the trip, coming back late and looking shattered in the early games under Monk. That continued and a few injuries whilst on international duty didn’t help. However he had a full pre-season with the club this summer and it was clear early on that he wanted to prove a point, and he has. Some very good performances off the bench coupled with starts in the League Cup have shown he is fitting into the style and system, and he has been rewarded with the new deal.
