Leeds United's new signing Lee Peltier has revealed he is excited about the prospect of joining such an illustrious club.

The 25-year-old returns to Yorkshire after he thrived during a previous spell at Huddersfield earlier in his career.

It is Peltier's second move in 13 months and at times this summer, the protracted nature of transfer negotiations, prompted doubts within the defender whether his switch from Leicester would ever materialise.

"I'm just glad I can focus and keep my head down and look forward to the season now," he told the Yorkshire Evening Post.

Speculation

"Obviously, the speculation and the transfer went on for a long time and I'm just happy it's all sorted out and I can relax now.

"I suppose at times, you get worried when it starts to drag out for so long as it did. But obviously, my agent kept me informed with what was going on and to be fair, Leicester were keeping me informed."

He added: "But when stuff carries on for that long, you are scared the club might lose interest and look elsewhere.

"I always knew the size of the club and always wanted to come here. I'm buzzing it's all worked out and that I'm at a massive club."
