Description: The United Defender Jason Pearce and the Irish International Noel Hunt on the Elland Road pitch here pictured just before the referee calls the teams for the kick off. The shot coming from the Football League Championship game against Brighton and Hove Albion at Elland Road on the 3rd August, 2013. Pearce played the full game for Leeds against the Seagulls while Hunt was replaced on 67 minutes by Dominic Poleon.

The Leeds manager Neil Warnock signed Jason Pearce on the 4th May, 2012. Jason was the first Summer signing for the United Boss and came to Elland Road for a reported cut price fee of 500k. Warnock had previously tried to sign Pearce while he was manager at Queens Park Rangers and again for United towards the end of the 2011-12 season. The English Defender is one of four new Summer signings from troubled League One outfit Portsmouth FC. Jason made his debut for The Whites in the Football League Cup game against Shrewsbury Town on the 11th August, 2012. After signing the player told the official site: "Leeds showed an interest a few weeks ago and as soon as I knew of that I wanted to get it done... I'm glad it's done now. The gaffer showed me around, and you can see what a massive club this is with great facilities, and you can't turn it down.

The Leeds United manager Brian McDermott signed Irish International Forward Noel Hunt on the 3rd July, 2013. Coming from Reading on a free transfer Hunt signed for The Whites on a two year contract. This is the second time Hunt has played under McDermott, the two were together at Reading where he scored 39 goals in 162 appearances for the Berkshire outfit. Hunt made his debut for The Whites in the first game of the 2013-14 season at Elland Road against Brighton and Hove Albion on the 3rd August, 2013. Hunt revealed after the signing that the clubs reputation and fans were major reasons he signed for The Whites as well as joining up with his former boss. McDermott told the official site: "Noel will bring an awful lot to our squad, on and off the pitch... He's an infectious character and I'm sure he will engage Leeds fans with his desire, determination and never say die attitude."
