Gray on new deal.

Young Leeds United star Archie Gray has spoken exclusively to LUTV after signing a new contract with the club.

The 17-year-old has agreed fresh terms with the Whites, committing his long-term future at Elland Road.

Gray spoke of his delight at agreeing the new deal and explained what it means to him.

“It feels amazing, it’s another dream come true,” said Gray.

“Supporting Leeds and following the club my whole life, it is just a dream come true, like I said.

“It means a lot to me and my family, the club trust me and trust my family and hopefully I can repay it.

“My family have supported me the whole way, giving me advice and helping me and now by training hard, I want to help them out and help my little brothers out.

“After working really hard in pre-season, I was hoping to play a bit this season, but I didn’t expect to be playing as much as I have been, it just shows the trust everyone has in me and it means a lot to me.

“I think my game has developed a lot, the experience is invaluable in the Championship, it’s a physical league which has everything.

“I just try to keep as calm as I can on the pitch and take every moment as it is, be calm with the ball and do my best off it.

“The manager has helped me a lot this season, especially with positioning and little things with what foot to pass to and what foot to receive with and the right-back position, he’s helped me loads and it’s been really good so far.

“My teammates have been amazing helping me and the fans as well, they’ve also been amazing.

“We’re creating something this season, we’ve all worked really hard in pre-season and throughout the campaign to gain momentum and hopefully we can keep it going.

“Obviously this season we want to get back to the place where we belong, but we’re taking it game by game and from there, we’ll see where it takes us.”
