Neil Warnock was set to appoint Leeds United’s club captain today – but he will keep his decision private until shortly before kick-off against Wolves.
The United manager has spent the past three weeks considering a replacement for former captain Robert Snodgrass and he revealed that his selection was made after last weekend’s Capital One Cup win over Shrewsbury Town.
Midfielder David Norris wore the armband against Shrewsbury, the latest in a line of players given the chance to skipper United in the lead-up to the Championship season. Paddy Kenny and Paul Green took on the role earlier in the summer.
Warnock said: “I’ve got a clear captain in my mind. It came to me overnight last weekend and that’s how it usually happens. I don’t plan anything, it just happens in my head.
“He’ll probably be told today but it won’t be official until tomorrow.”
Norris has recovered from a knock picked up in the win over Shrewsbury and Tom Lees should start against Wolverhampton Wanderers tomorrow after overcoming a groin strain.
