Full-back on new season.
Leeds United full-back Luke Ayling spoke to LUTV as preparations continue for the 2020/21 Premier League season.
The new campaign gets under way over the weekend commencing 11th September, with the Whites braced for an away trip at reigning champions Liverpool.
An excited Ayling spoke about how the side have been preparing for top-flight football and revealed the promotion has now sunk in.
“It feels real now, the first time it really felt real was when the fixtures came out,” said Ayling.
“It’s exciting and I can’t wait to get started now.
“Everyone dreams of playing in this league, they will all be hard games, but the boys can’t wait to challenge themselves and see what we can do.
“We’re a very close bunch, we’ve been working hard in this off season to give ourselves the best opportunity and I’m sure the other teams will be looking at us and thinking it will be a hard game as well.
“There are going to be a lot of tough games and we might not be winning all of them like we’re used to, but we are certainly going to be out there trying our best every game.
“We’ve not really spoken about what we’re expecting to do, we’re just going to go out there, work hard, play our football and hopefully get some results.”
