Former Northern Ireland international Keith Gillespie believes that his countryman Stuart Dallas will undoubtedly be Player of the Year for Leeds United this season, and has told The Transfer Tavern that he would certainly not consider leaving the club this summer.
Dallas has been in superb form for Marcelo Bielsa’s side this term as Leeds have taken the Premier League by storm.
They are currently 10th in the Premier League table and have won as many games this season as they have lost.
Will Stuart Dallas win Leeds' POTY?!
There is no danger of relegation and Leeds will already be looking forward to next season and the potential of climbing the table still further.
Dallas has played every single minute of the Premier League season and scored a brilliant brace at the weekend as Leeds shocked Manchester City, winning 2-1 despite going down to 10 men.
Incredibly, the Northern Ireland international, who has won 52 caps for his country, has played in six different positions this season: left-back, right-back, attacking midfield, central midfield, defensive midfield and on the right of midfield.
Speaking exclusively to TT, Gillespie was asked if Dallas could step up to a top six club, and insisted that he will not even consider the prospect of exiting Elland Road.
He said: “I’ve no doubt, he’ll probably be the Player of the Year for Leeds again this year. He got it last year, so it shows you how important he is. I don’t think he would even be thinking about leaving that club now.
“He loves the place, what they’ve gone on to achieve in terms of getting promotion and now how well they’ve done in the Premier League.
“He’s a regular for Northern Ireland so why maybe think of going to a top-six club and leaving the club and then not being that regular?”
