United’s vice-captain made the switch to Elland Road from Chesterfield in summer 2014 after catching the eye in a pre-season friendly against the Whites.

Cooper, a product of Hull City’s Academy, has been a regular fixture at the heart of the United defence since his arrival and earned a call-up to the senior Scotland squad for the first time last season.

The left-sided centre-back previously spent time on loan at Carlisle United and Huddersfield Town while on the books of Hull, before earning a place in the League Two PFA Team of the Year 2013/14 as he helped Chesterfield secure promotion.
