Leeds United have continued their busy week of player deals by announcing that midfielder Jamie Shackleton has signed a new long-term contract with the club.

A graduate of the club’s academy, the 20-year-old has already made 48 appearances in all competitions for Marcelo Bielsa’s Whites first-team, and scored his first two senior goals in the club’s final two games of last season as Leeds completed their Championship title-winning campaign in style.

Shackleton now looks set to continue making those contributions for Leeds for some time to come yet, after it was confirmed on Wednesday evening that the midfielder has signed a new four-year contract with the club.

That deal has now secured Shackleton’s future at Elland Road until the end of the 2023/24 campaign, giving the midfielder the chance to make a big name for himself with Leeds in the next few seasons.

Taking to Twitter to react to news of that new deal for Shackleton, plenty of Leeds fans appeared delighted with this latest player agreement.

Here, we take a look at what some of those supporters had to say.
