Goalkeeper hoping for another promotion...
New Leeds United recruit Paddy Kenny admits he had no doubts about dropping down from the Premier League to play a part in Neil Warnock's planned revolution at Elland Road.
The 34-year-old completed his switch from Queens Park Rangers on Wednesday at Thorp Arch and is hoping he can repeat his debut season with the Londoners by celebrating another promotion to the Premier League.
"I'm delighted it's done," said Paddy, who has signed a three-year contract with the club.
"It's a massive club and I'm excited for the challenge ahead. It's been rumoured for a while, but once I'd spoken to him (the manager) and heard his plans for the club I really wanted to come.
"There were no doubts. Hopefully I can do what I did at QPR and help this club back into the Premier League where it belongs.
"I'm from around here and have a lot of family and friends who are big Leeds United fans. It's one of the biggest clubs around and I want to show what I can do."
Paddy is no stranger to working with the United boss, and the pairing have previously been united at Bury, Sheffield United, and QPR.
"This is the fourth time he's signed me," said Paddy.
"He knows what he'll get from me and I know what I'll get from him, and as soon as I had the opportunity to come here I was delighted to take him up on it.
"His record at this level and for promotions speaks for itself, and with the players he's looking to bring in and those he'll get I'm sure we'll be pushing up there.
"He told me to come here, be myself, bring my experience and try and help this club get promoted. I've done really well and hopefully I can carry that on here."
Paddy has two promotions under his belt, and is well remembered by Leeds fans following his time at Bramall Lane, where he was part of their successful Championship side in 2005/06.
"First and foremost it's a difficult league and we know that," said Paddy.
"You have to make your home games winnable and hopefully with the big crowd we can do that and try and be up at the top of the league. I've had a bit of stick off the crowd in the past, but hopefully I can change their minds and do well for them."
