The Whites have gone through a gruelling pre-season of intensive training and matches - including game against the likes of Blackburn Rovers and Real Betis - to prepare them for the rigours of the upcoming Premier League season, and will round things off this weekend with a game against Europa League champions Villarreal.

Meanwhile, summer signing Junior Firpo has been discussing the upcoming season and what fans can expect from him, and he revealed: “I only have to say to them that I will give my all.

“I need to play. I am really, really hungry to play here [at Leeds]. They can expect me to give my all in the games and the rest we can see. I am really hungry to play. I came here for one thing [to play]. I think they [the club] are also hungry for the way that I can play.

“If you mix both [together], then it'll be really good. I feel good, it's (pre-season training) a little bit hard. It's really physical and [we're] doing a lot of training sessions. It's good. The real thing is my team-mates have given me a warm welcome. It's made it easy.”

Firpo will be hopeful of securing a starting spot in Leeds' side, when they take on fierce rivals Manchester United in their opening game of the season at Old Trafford in just ten days time.
