Leeds United captain Jonny Howson has promised to sign a new deal at Elland Road.

The 23-year-old, in the final year of his contract, had been linked with a move to Bolton Wanderers.

However, the talismanic midfielder says he wants to stay Leeds, and is targeting promotion after missing out on the play-off place last season.

“We have been in talks for the past month or so and I am sure they will be finalised and I’ll sign soon," Howson said.

“For any professional footballer it is an ambition to play at the highest level, and I am no different. I would love to do that with Leeds and, hopefully, that is where we will be next season.

“I think we have got a very good chance of going up. It is all about consistency.

“If we can get that right, we shall have an excellent opportunity of staying in and around the top of the table.”

Leeds currently lie seventh in the Championship, level on points with Crystal Palace and Blackpool.
