Kilgallon signs new deal

Leeds United centre back Matthew Kilgallon has signed a new contract with the club.

Leeds United centre back Matthew Kilgallon has signed a new two-and-a-half year contract with the Championship club.

The former Elland Road trainee had interested the likes of Norwich City and Barnsley before the close of the summer transfer window, with his previous deal set to expire at the season's end.

Whites boss Kevin Blackwell, however, was keen to keep the England Under-21 international beyond the current campaign and Kilgallon has now penned a new deal with the club.

"I am thrilled to have signed a new contract," Kilgallon told The Stellar Group's official website.

"I grew up at this club and obviously feel very strongly about what has happened in the past few years and what the fans have been through.

"Everyone here is determined to restore the club to its rightful place in the Premier League and we are all working hard to make that happen.

"There is a great spirit here, we have a fantastic stadium, the best set of fans in the country and a very ambitious manager.

"I will keep working hard and keep trying to improve and hopefully the next few years can be very special for me and for Leeds United."
