Snodgrass signs new deal at Leeds

Robert Snodgrass
Robert Snodgrass was signed for Leeds by former manager Gary McAllister.

Leeds United striker Robert Snodgrass has pledged his future to the club until 2013 after signing a new four-year contract.

The 21-year-old former Livingstone forward was a key player for United last season making 34 appearances scoring 11 goals.

"I am delighted to get it done," Snodgrass told the club's website.

"I had no worries because I had two years left and was happy here, but it's great to sign a new contract."

He added: "It's been great since I came down here last summer and I really love the club.

"From the fans to the back-room staff and the other players, it's a great place to be and hopefully I can repay the faith that's been shown in me."

Leeds United are believed to be close to making a fifth summer signing with Liverpool winger Adam Hammill understood to be a target.

Barnsley have had a bid accepted for the 21-year-old midfielder who had a loan spell at Oakwell last season.

Hammill also had a successful loan period at Blackpool when current Leeds manager Simon Grayson was in charge at Bloomfield Road.
