The 20-year-old has openly discussed his frustration at not being involved enough at Leeds, "It's been disappointing for me not to start in the league, I went there to play games and get games. It's still early times. I think every time I've come on a done well and shown why I think I should be playing.

"I think tonight was a good statement and a good way for me to put across a performance and hopefully I'll be starting in the next run of games. I'm always learning and when I come away here or back at Leeds, it's a new environment.

"I feel like I am learning a lot. I think I'll learn even  more by playing, times like this is good for me to come way and get game time here. I'm looking to push on, I went there to play and I think I believe I'm good enough to be playing in the team. I want to kick on when I get back and hopefully get a run of games."
