Leeds United duo Stuart Dallas and Liam Cooper have committed their long-term futures to the Whites, the club have confirmed on their official website.

Cooper, who currently serves as captain of Marcelo Bielsa’s first team, has penned a new five-year deal at Elland Road and is now due to remain on the books of the club at least until the summer of 2024.

Dallas has agreed a new four-year Leeds deal and will now remain with the club at least until the summer of 2023.

The deals of the duo mean that Leeds have now signed three players from their club to long-term deals after Kalvin Phillips also recently agreed to a new long-term contract with the club.

This is good news for the Whites. All three players are key components of the club at the moment and there expertise will likely be required if the club are to finally achieve their goal of winning promotion to the Premier League for the first time since 2004.

Cooper has so far featured in all of Leeds’ Championship games this season. He has defended astutely, helping the club to keep four clean sheets and was also rewarded for his efforts by earning a debut for Scotland recently.

Dallas arrived at the club from Brentford back in 2015 and has thus far gone on to make more than 151 appearances for Leeds, scoring 15 goals.

Good form from both players will be vital if the Yorkshire giants are to finally achieve their ambition of winning automatic promotion this season.
