Leeds star: I would love to spend rest of my career at Elland Road
Stuart Dallas has revealed that he would “love” to spend the rest of his career playing for Leeds United after playing a key role in their title-winning season.
Dallas, 29, has played 45 times across all competitions this term, starting all but one of the Whites’ Championship fixtures.
He’s played on both wings, both full-backs positions and even as a central midfielder in that time, making himself a solid contender for the player of the year award.
Ahead of the final game of Leeds’ successful Championship campaign, Dallas has made it clear he has no intentions of leaving West Yorkshire any time soon.
“I signed a new long-term deal last season and I would love to see out my career here,” said Dallas, as quoted by BBC Sport.
“You don’t realise just how big and special the club is until you are involved in it. To be part of it is crazy.
“It hasn’t really sunk in yet with the way the games are coming but we are looking forward to the next few days.
“We represent a lot of people at this club and hopefully this year we have made them very happy.”
We’re all for Dallas playing for Leeds for the rest of his career.
He has been brilliant this season and has really made the left-back slot his own since Marcelo Bielsa threw him into that position on a consistent basis in late February.
It still wouldn’t be a shock if Leeds sign a natural left-back in the summer transfer window.
As good as Dallas has been in that role in the Championship, the Whites are bound to need someone who is a bit more defensively rigid to play there against top Premier League clubs.
Dallas is great going forward and works well with Jack Harrison down the left-wing but we need to accept that there are going to be more games where Leeds have their backs to the wall than on the front-foot next term.
