Norwich City defender Max Aarons has expressed his delight on Instagram at Charlie Cresswell signing a new contract at Leeds United.

The 20-year-old has penned a new deal until 2027 (LUFC’s official website) after spending the entire campaign of 2022/23 in the Championship with Millwall.

It will now mean that he will earn more minutes than he would have done if the Whites remained in the Premier League, with the centre-back posting on Instagram ‘four more years’.

Nonetheless, a number of players reacted to Cresswell extending his stay at Leeds, as they posted in the comments section of his IG post.

Sam Greenwood wrote: “Love it, bro,” added with heart emojis, whilst Max Aarons added “Yesss bro,” added with a raised hands emoji.

The club’s backline was all over the shop last season and a big reason why they dropped. A number of players have left, on loan, but the likes of right-back Luke Ayling and experienced centre-back Liam Cooper are still there.

These players surely can’t be starting when the Championship begins this week, especially those at the heart of the defence, as many will be pressing Cresswell to partner Ampadu.
