Aidy White has penned a new three-year deal at Leeds

Leeds defender Aidy White has ended speculation about his future by accepting a new three-year deal to stay at Elland Road.

The 20-year-old Academy product was out of contract this summer and had initially turned down a new offer from the club, which prompted attention from clubs in the Barclays Premier League and npower Championship.

However, he will formally pen his new deal on Saturday and manager Neil Warnock told the club's official website: "Aidy is a young player who we have high hopes for and we're delighted he's agreed to a new deal. He's good going forward and he's good defensively and he's a big part of our plans here."

Meanwhile, Warnock has confirmed Norwich transfer target Robert Snodgrass will travel with the squad for their pre-season tour of the West Country.

Captain Snodgrass has been the subject of two bids from the Barclays Premier League club and was missing from the party for the friendly at Farsley on Friday night.

However, Warnock said: "Snod has a tight hamstring and I didn't want him to risk it or anything.

"There's a lot of speculation about him, there's a lot of people here who would want to ask him questions, and I just felt he was better off out of the way.

"He'll be there at 8am on Sunday when everyone goes down to Cornwall."

Luciano Becchio and summer signing from Norwich Adam Drury were also absent at Farsley although Warnock stressed it was just a precaution.
