– NEIL WARNOCK, LEEDS UNITED MANAGER
He is a lad who I've always enjoyed playing against.
He is a leader and I felt these last few weeks we've lacked leaders. It's great to have him in.
We're short on bodies in there, Jason is suspended, so he'll play on Saturday.
He's got a great attitude, it's a super club for him.
