Leeds midfielder Gylfi Einarsson has signed a new contract which will keep him at Elland Road until the summer of 2008.

The Iceland international’s contract was due to expire this summer but manager Kevin Blackwell was determined to keep him at the club.

Einarsson has been at the Championship side since January 2004, having spent four years with Norwegian side Lillestrom.

The 27-year-old has had a frustrating season, having been sent off in his last appearance in the Carling Cup defeat at Blackburn, before going on to dislocate his shoulder playing for the reserves.

‘I am just very happy to have signed a new contract,’ he told the club’s website, www.leedsunited.com

‘I’ve not had the best of times recently after dislocating my shoulder, but I am happy that people believe in me and think I am a good player.’
