Conor Shaughnessy: Leeds United defender signs new four-year deal”

After impressing at U23 level he made the step up to training with the first team this summer, and his new deal keeps him at Elland Road until 2021.

Leeds United defender Conor Shaughnessy believes he has proved that he is capable of playing at a high level after signing a new deal with the Championship club.

The 21-year-old former Ireland youth global, who only made his Championship debut last month, has impressed new manager Thomas Christiansen sufficiently to have started in two games and all three of Leeds' Carabao Cup games ever since.

Shaughnessy, who has featured as a centre-half recently having initially been seen as a central midfielder, joined Leeds' academy in September past year following his release by Reading.

His debut came on the opening weekend of the season against Bolton Wanderers and he received plaudits for his performance as the Peacocks shocked Burnley in the third round of the Carabao Cup on Tuesday night.

Shaughnessy failed to break into the senior squad last season, but the centre-back has featured for the first team under new Leeds boss Thomas Christiansen this season.

Leeds academy manager Adam Underwood, who oversaw Shaughnessy's early time at the club, said he was delighted with the player's progress.

He is a hardworking, talented and versatile footballer who has an excellent attitude and work ethic.
