Leeds seal deal for Tonge

Published Add your comment

Leeds have completed the permanent signing of midfielder Michael Tonge from Stoke for an undisclosed fee.

The 29-year-old, who spent three months on loan at Elland Road at the end of last year, has signed a two-and-a-half year contract. Manager Neil Warnock, who was in charge of Tonge during their time together at Sheffield United, sees the experienced Mancunian as having a pivotal role to play during the second half of the season as Leeds look to mount a promotion challenge.

"Tongey showed what an important member of the squad he is," Warnock told the club's official website. "I'm delighted we've been able to agree things with Stoke to bring him here permanently."
