Leeds midfielder Ronaldo Vieira insists that his side will be back next season following the draw to Wigan on Sunday.
The Whites finished their Championship campaign with a 1-1 draw away to Wigan and Chris Wood reached the individual accolade of 30 goals for the season.
Garry Monk’s side finished the year seventh-placed in the Championship and five points adrift of the play-off positions.
Vieira has been one of the several positives to emerge from Elland Road during the campaign as the youngster has made his first team breakthrough.
The 18-year-old academy graduate has become a permanent feature in the Whites starting line-up and made 38 appearances across all competitions.
Vieira thanked supporters on social media for their support and vowed that the Yorkshire giants will be back.
“That’s it, couldn’t be more proud to be part of this team, unreal season for all of us, couldn’t have asked for better fans. We’ll be back,” Vieira wrote on his personal Twitter account.

Leeds will be hoping that Garry Monk can continue the good work next season, with the 38-year-old manager in discussions about his future with co-owner Andrea Radrizzani.
The Whites finished 13th-placed in the 2015/16 season, but have improved drastically under Monk’s guidance.
A blip towards the back-end of the season saw them slip out of the play-offs, but a belief has been restored in the club’s fans as they wait to return to the Premier League.
