Leeds United recent signing Danny Webber says he turned down lucrative offers of a move abroad to join Leeds last week.
The 30 year old joined Leeds last week and admitted that once he knew Leeds were interested there was only one place he was going.
Speaking on SkySports.com , Webber said, ‘I spoke to a few clubs in China and in Qatar and I went over there to have talks and have a look around the club.
‘I was treated very well by everyone in China and Qatar and the offers were very attractive, but once I knew Leeds were interested in me my mind was made up.”
Webber had been without a club since leaving Portsmouth last summer after two injury ravaged seasons at Fratton Park and Webber is looking to prove a few people wrong after signing for Leeds until the end of the season. ‘It is a brilliant opportunity for me to prove people wrong and prove to myself I can still do the business after my injury problems,” continued Webber.
Webber was Neil Warnock`s first signing and he made his debut in the weekend defeat to Southampton as a second half substitute.
He made a quick impression and could quite easily have scored two goals if not for the agility of Southampton goalkeeper Kelvin Davis.
Webber is now looking forward to playing at Elland Road, a ground where he says he has always played well and is hoping to help Leeds back to the Premier League. ‘I have always enjoyed playing at Leeds as I have always done quite well there.
‘Hopefully I can pick up on those good performances at Elland Road and help Leeds for the rest of the season and try and help them get promotion,’ added Webber.
Webber could be in line to make his first start for the club this evening with winger Aidy White struggling to shake of an injury picked up in the game with Southampton last weekend.
