With the recent departure of club captain Robert Snodgrass, many Leeds United fans were worrying...just who would replace the Scot?

Luke Varney will more than likely take up one of the wide positions, but Aidy White is the man at the moment changing positions from left-back to attacking midfielder.

Throughout the summer, White was linked with a move away from the club but that speculation was ended when White signed a new three-year-deal last week.

White has been ever present during pre-season this year, scoring a few goals in the process. The left-back come makeshift winger has revealed to the club's official site how he's enjoying his football and new role.

He said:

"It's gone really well for the squad. A lot of players got minutes under their belts last week which is what you want in pre-season. We got results as well although you look more for the fitness side of things. Every game you play you're looking to develop fitness wise, and although we're a little bit off we're not far away. As a squad we bonded well and we're looking forward to the season ahead.

I'm still learning the role (wide right of midfield), I've got to improve in all aspects of my game, not just on the right, but it's a role I'm enjoying. There's a bit more freedom, it's more attacking and I can stay further up the pitch and get on the ball more.

With the squad we have, we have a real chance of getting promoted. I think we've got players who can do a job here. Luke Varney looks sharp, Pearcey looks strong, and I think the signings he's made are fantastic."
