HONDURAN international Ramon Nunez has signed a new long-term contract with Leeds United .

The 25-year-old attacking midfielder has scored five goals in 10 appearances this season and has agreed terms on a four-year deal with the option of an additional year.

Nunez was loaned out to Scunthorpe last season, but has made an impact for the Whites this term following the departure of Max Gradel, Neil Kilkenny and Bradley Johnson, although he has not featured since United signed Danny Pugh.

He remains in manager Simnon Grayson’s plans, however, and is pleased to have sorted out his future.

He said: “I’m delighted. Leeds is the club that gave me an opportunity and I’m happy here.

“It’s all about concentrating on my football and working hard to get into the team.

“Obviously getting in the Premier League is the goal of everybody here. We certainly have enough good players to do that.

“My goal just now is to play week in, week out and maintain that throughout the season.

“I started off the season well, but I think I can give a lot more and that came into my decision to stay here.”
