Due to the rumours on social media I have decided to go public with regards my position at Leeds United.
As many people will know I have not been Leeds United all of my life but the club have wormed their way into my heart. The past few seasons have been very difficult and I have at times doubted this commitment to a club that I have grown to love and am honoured to represent. There have been some significant coming and goings during my period with the club and it has been a test of mine and everyone’s commitment.
I can confirm that after listening to the new boss I have decided to take my annual extension to my contract and I can confirm that despite the rumour on social media I will NOT be joining Huddersfield Town on loan next season. Obviously this has an impact on @colsonsmith who I subsidise in his position with the club.
My advisors have reminded me that had I committed to the club when offered the chance by Ridsdale I would not be having to clarify my position at this time. My concerns about his leadership style and personality characteristics at the time I feel have played out for all to see.
I have been public about all of the leaders that have come since Ridsdale and to date these concerns have been unfortunately proven.

I have identified that I may in fact have a limited future at Leeds United, I felt it was only fair to inform the club and the supporters of the club of my plans and intentions. The club under it’s current stewardship has until the 2019 season (our centenary season) to get the team in to the top tier of English football. If we are not there by this time, I will, at that time not take up any further extensions to my contract. My disappointment with the progress of the club has seen me terminate my current contact with @skyfootball as I see this as throwing good money after the Barclays Premiership and of no benefit to me or Leeds United.
In summary for the coming season and until 2019 I am Leeds United and I will be marching on together.
