Monday August 28th, 2017

Leeds United have confirmed via their official website that Andy Lonergan has returned to Elland Road on a two-year contract after five years away from the club.

The Preston-born stopper made 38 appearances for the Peacocks between 2011 and 2012 before moving to Bolton Wanderers for an undisclosed fee.

The journeyman keeper, who started his career at Preston North End, has also had spells at Fulham and Wolverhampton Wanderers as well as loan stints with Darlington, Blackpool, Wycombe Wanderers and Swindon Town.

He re-joins the Whites with close to 400 professional appearances to his name, after he was released by Wolves this summer.

The 33-year-old will compete with Bailey Peacock-Farrell and summer signing Felix Weildwald for a place in Whites’ first team.
