Northern Ireland International Stuart Dallas has signed a new three-year deal with Leeds United.

The 26-year-old will remain at the Elland Road Club until the end of the 2019/20 season.

Speaking to BBC Radio Leeds about his contract renewal with the Championship Club, Dallas said it was an easy decision.

He said :"It's where I'm happy, this the club I want to be at. I feel as if I am going to be part of something special this season.

"For me it was a no brainer, an easy decision.

"There has been a lot of hard work done behind the scenes, the chairman has done a lot for the club - we're like a big family and I think that shows on the pitch."

Since joining The Whites in August 2015, the midfielder has made 90 appearances and has scored nine goals for the club.

He has been included in Michael O'Neill's Northern Ireland squad for the forthcoming World Cup qualifiers against San Marino and the Czech Republic.
