Leeds' all-time top Premier League goalscorer is Mark Viduka but how many did he score?

Dallas, who is valued at £2.7m by Transfermarkt, is in his first-ever Premier League season, and he has adapted brilliantly as he has played every single league game for the Whites, played in six different positions, and scored an impressive eight league goals.

Norris has clearly been impressed with the Northern Ireland international and lauded him with praise.

He said: “He has stepped up and not been fazed jumping up the leagues, and he has taken the step up from the Championship into the Premier League fantastically.

“Wherever you play him, he gives you that consistency, so he’s a great player to have in and around your squad, and I’ve heard that he’s also a good lad.”

Do you think Dallas should win Player of the Season?

No, he hasn't been that good

No, he hasn't been that good

Yes, he deserves it

Yes, he deserves it

Leeds signed Dallas back in August 2015 from Brentford for a fee of £1.71 million. Since then, Dallas has gone on to make over 220 appearances for the Yorkshire club (per Transfermarkt).

TIF Thoughts on Dallas…

Given that Dallas is normally a left-back, he has had to play pretty much everywhere for Marcelo Bielsa’s side this season, and he is the club’s second-top league goalscorer.

So, he has been very impressive for Leeds, and it is no surprise to see him being lauded for his performances this season.

Certainly, you would think he has to be a contender for Leeds’ Player of the Year, and he also scored two goals in arguably the Whites’ best win this season against Manchester City.

So you can see why Norris is praising him so much, and we look forward to seeing how he carries on this form into next season.
