Sky Bet Championship: Leeds boss Neil Redfearn hails importance of Lewis Cook

Leeds head coach Neil Redfearn has hailed the importance of Lewis Cook after another impressive display from the teenage midfielder at the weekend.

Cook has been a regular in United's midfield since Redfearn handed him a first Sky Bet Championship start in August's home win over Bolton.

The academy product, who now has 21 first-team appearances to his name, stood out again on Saturday evening as Leeds drew 1-1 away at Nottingham Forest in front of the television cameras.

Redfearn told the club's official website: "Lewis Cook, 17-years-old, he was the best player on the pitch by a mile.

"There were some good signs for us on Saturday. He's one of ours and he wants to play for Leeds United, that's all he's known.

"He's a massive influence on us and how we play. Even at the tender age of 17, there's a maturity about him. He's got this strength in character and he's getting better and better."
