New Leeds United signing Stephen Warnock says he wants to play in the Premier League again with Leeds.
The 31-year-old has signed a two-and-a-half-year deal from Aston Villa after being frozen out at Villa Park this season.
Warnock is now hoping to make a quick return to the Premier League by helping Leeds in their promotion fight in the second half of the season.
Speaking on the Leeds United official website , Warnock said, “I haven`t come here to be a championship player.
“When you look at the position at the moment, a couple of wins throws you into the promotion chase.
“The new signings will hopefully lift the squad because that usually happens. Leeds is a huge club and we want to be back in the Premier League.”
The left back spent the first half of the season on loan with championship side Bolton Wanderers where he made 15 appearances, who were also keen on taking the player back to the Reebok Stadium.
Premier League side West Ham United had also tried to sign Warnock but the player, who was part of the 2010 England World Cup finals squad chose Leeds.
Warnock will wear number 15 this season.
