The player wasn't particularly on the mind of Leeds United fans before the season began but the manager Thomas Christiansen saw something in the then-midfield player and took him on the club's pre-season tour to Austria where he was used as a centre-back.

The 21-year-old has featured five times in total this season, with Leeds now leading the standings in their bid to return to the Premier League next season.

Shaughnessy, 21, who has made his first-team breakthrough this season, will remain at Elland Road until at least 2021.

"It's so positive at the minute".

Leeds academy boss Adam Underwood said: "I'm delighted for Conor, he is a hardworking, talented and versatile footballer who has an excellent attitude and work ethic".

The 21-year-old former Ireland youth global, who only made his Championship debut last month, has impressed new manager Thomas Christiansen sufficiently to have started in two games and all three of Leeds' Carabao Cup games ever since.

"I'm pleased that Victor and Thomas have seen enough to secure his long term future." . He, among others, was being watched by Republic of Ireland assistant manager Roy Keane (boo) against Burnley.
