"We are a team this season after many changes last season. We are a very good group, that is important, and we're playing well with the full-backs."

Berardi, who can play at right-back or left-back, joined Leeds in the summer of 2014 from Italian club Sampdoria and has made 32 appearances.

Uwe Rosler's side are 10th in the Championship after a 2-1 win at MK Dons on Saturday.
