Leeds United have seen a further three Championship fixtures altered over the busy Christmas and New Year period with games against Aston Villa, Nottingham Forest and Derby County all chosen by Sky Sports.

The exclusive EFL broadcaster has already shown Leeds a whopping eight times over the course of their 16 opening league fixtures this season, which also doesn't included appearing three times on their red button option.

United will also be shown a further three times in their next five games again after being chosen for full coverage with trips to West Bromwich Albion (November 10) and Sheffield United (December 1) selected along with the visit of Reading (November 27) to Elland Road.

Firstly Leeds' trip to Villa Park to face Dean Smith's side has been moved from December 22 to December 23 and is now set for a 1:30pm kick-off. The trip to Nottingham Forest has also been changed but remains on New Year's Day (January 1) and will now take place at a later kick-off time of 3pm.

Finally, the Whites home game against Derby County has been moved forward to Friday, January 11 and will start at 7:45pm at Elland Road under the floodlights.

There is good news for Josh Warrington fans though as the Leeds boxer's title fight with Carl Frampton on December 22 in Manchester won't clash with the Whites fixture schedule following the announcement from Sky Sports.

Full changes:

Aston Villa v Leeds United - December 23, 1:30pm

Nottingham Forest v Leeds United - January 1, 3pm

Leeds United v Derby Count - January 11, 7:45pm
