O’Kane has joined Liam Cooper, Kalvin Phillips and Tyler Denton in extending their stays at Elland Road after what has been a very productive summer for the club.
After Thomas Christiansen was made manager and sealed considerable additions to his squad, he then saw his team win both of their first two matches of the campaign against Bolton and Port Vale to lift the mood among the fan base even more.
O’Kane was a crucial part of the team that earned a 3-2 victory at Bolton as he played 90 minutes, meaning that Christiansen could see the Irishman as having a big role to play in the coming months.
