Luke Murphy hopeful of continuing fine form for Leeds United in new season

15 July 2015

Leeds United's Luke Murphy is hopeful of carrying on his good form from the back-end of last season into the new campaign after signing a fresh deal with the club.

The former Crewe Alexandra man fell out of favour at Elland Road at the beginning of 2014/15, but returned to the squad at the start of January to go on to make 32 appearances, scoring three goals.

Midfielder Murphy, 25, who looks set to miss the opening games of the season through a knee injury, has agreed a new four-year contract with the Whites and insists he is settled at the club.

He told the club's official website: "The good news is me signing my future to this club. I found out about it about a week ago. I sat down and spoke and there wasn’t really much to think about.

"I’m happy here. I’ve had ups and downs but I really started to feel at home towards the end of last season and started to feel as though I was playing my best football that I’ve played here. Hopefully that can continue.

"At Christmas, I definitely wouldn’t have thought this was going to happen. When I started playing, I really started to enjoy myself. It wasn’t necessarily what I thought would happen, but it was what I hoped would happen.

"It has now and I’m chuffed to bits. Hopefully I can kick on this season.”
