Chairman Massimo Cellino told the club website:external-link "Lewis Cook deserves his new contract, he was one of the most exciting players last season.

He added: "I knew we had a wonderful talent when I first saw him in the summer. At first, I thought he was much older than he was. He plays like he has lots of experience.

"My hope is for him to stay at Leeds for a long time and continue growing with Alex Mowatt, Sam Byram, Charlie Taylor and the others. We don't want to sell."
