'That's the news I wanted', 'So pleased' - Leeds fans react as attacker agrees terms
By Harvey Byrne
Attacker Stuart Dallas has extended his stay at Leeds by agreeing a new three-year deal – and Leeds fans on Twitter are ecstatic.
The 26-year-old left-winger was going into the final year of his old deal and there were reports of interest from rival Championship club Norwich.
However, Leeds have now put a stop to such links with the club announcing on Wednesday afternoon via their official website and Twitter account that the Northern Irishman has agreed a deal taking him up to 2020.

Dallas has played a slight less prominent role to his one in the Leeds team last season with each of his league appearances coming off the bench under Thomas Christiansen in the current campaign.
However, it is clear that he is still a fan favourite among the Elland Road faithful with many on social media celebrating the contract extension like a new signing.
