Defender Tom Lees has signed a new contract at Leeds, keeping him at the club until 2015.

The 20-year-old only penned a new deal in December, but manager Simon Grayson has moved to secure his services for the longer term.

Lees has made seven appearances for the Whites this season, making his debut against Bradford in the Carling Cup in August. He scored his first goal for the Elland Road outfit against npower Championship rivals Hull later in the month. He told the club's official website: "I'm delighted to be in this situation and I'm delighted to sign a new contract."

Lees added: "I'm really chuffed with how things have gone so far. It's been tough, and I've been learning lots, but I've really enjoyed playing regularly and being a part of the first team.

"It's been a step up for me and it's a good challenge.

"I wouldn't have thought I would be in this position now, but I know my future is here and my aim is to keep improving, keep learning, and keep getting better."
