The Elland Road outfit recently clinched the capture of the custodian on a two-year deal, ending manager Kevin Blackwell's search for an experienced keeper.
Sullivan enjoyed a frustrating year at Chelsea last term as he spent much of the season on the bench, and he is now relishing the chance of regular first team action.
"It's a great move for me professionally because it gives me the opportunity to start playing again which is really my number one aim," stated the player to the club's official website.
"I felt that at this stage of my career that when a club like Leeds come to you to help them to achieve things you have to join them.
"I could have stayed at Chelsea and seen my contract out and I would not have been involved, but I wanted the challenge of playing again."
The Scottish international now believes there is plenty to be optimistic about at Leeds as they look to bounce straight back in to the top flight at the first attempt.
"I have only been here for a short time but what you do realise is that the desire to succeed runs through the club," stated Sullivan ahead of the opening day of the season on August 7.
"I have come here because I think we are going to be successful and I want to be part of that."
