Many Leeds United fans have been reacting on social media after Stuart Dallas shared that the ‘Burley Banksy’ Andy McVeigh had honoured the defender with one of his artworks.

McVeigh has been making Elland Road and the surrounding area a slight bit more colourful for the past year, by painting the nearby electric boxes with United-themed murals portraying some of the highs of the club’s 100-year history, chants sung from the terraces and honouring players past and present.

Some of his pieces were vandalised at the start of the season, and saw the club announce that McVeigh had been commissioned to recreate and restore the damaged artwork.

The ‘Burley Banksy’ has moved on from restoration now, though, and Dallas has become the latest player to be honoured with a piece dedicated to their time in West Yorkshire.

Dallas arrived at Elland Road from Brentford in August 2015 for a fee in the region of £1.3million and has been a regular member of the first-team ever since, no matter who has been standing in the dugout.

The 28-year-old has been a particular favourite for Marcelo Bielsa as Dallas offers the Argentine a supremely versatile option, with our £1.8million-rated Northern Ireland international playing 18 games at right-back, 16 in right-midfield, 13 at left-back, three at left-mid and twice in central midfield since the start of the 2018/19 season.

Bielsa has not excluded Dallas from one of his Championship starting line-ups at all this term, either, and the 43-cap star has clearly won the Elland Road fanbase over judging by some of the messages shared as they reacted to the ‘Burley Banksy’s latest artwork.

What will the result be vs Preston on Boxing Day?
