Description: Ryan Hall, Michael Tonge, Aidan White and Adam Drury applaud the travelling White Army after the game on the vicarage Road pitch. The shot coming from the Football League Championship game against Watford at Vicarage Road on the 4th May, 2013. The last game of the 2012-13 season. Michael Tonge and Adam Drury both played the full game for Leeds while Aidan White replaced Michael Brown on 64 minutes and Ryan Hall replaced Paul Green on 90 minutes in the game against the Hornets.

Manager Neil Warnock signed Ryan Hall on the 18th October, 2012 on loan from Southend United until January 2013, with the possibility of a permanent move on the cards. Ryan made his debut for Leeds as a substitute in the Football League Championship game against Birmingham City at Elland Road on the 27th October. To develop the player and build fitness it was decided to put Hall into the development squad, where he did well scoring four goals in one game against the Derby County reserves. Hall made his full debut for Leeds in the Championship game against Millwall at Elland Road on the 18th November. On the 27th December it was announced by the Club that Hall had signed a permanent deal for Leeds United on a two-and a-half-year contract. This made Hall United's first signing of the January 2013 transfer window. Warnock told the official site after the signing, "When we brought Ryan in I said 'I believe he is a player with potential for a big future,' I'm sure during the length of his contract Ryan will have the opportunity to establish himself at this level, and you can see that from his contribution at Huddersfield a few weeks ago."

On the 13th September, 2012 the United manager Neil Warnock signed Michael Tonge on loan till December, 2012. Coming from Sheffield United this is the second time Tonge has played under the stewardship of Warnock. The United Boss told the official site, "A loan had to be someone we wanted and Michael fits the category and I think he'll fit in well. He's desperate to do well. I like that, and I like him as a person. He gives us that passing ability we maybe don't have and he'll fit in well. In January 2013 Tonge signed for The Whites on a permanent two and a half-year contract.

Loiner and Leeds fan Aidan White came through the youth system at Elland Road after joining the academy in 2002. It was manager Gary McAllister who gave him his first first team debut when at the age of 16 he started for Leeds in the Football League Cup game against Crystal Palace on the 26th August, 2008. Aidan received a standing ovation for his efforts after he was substituted and he was soon in the action again seven days later after he started for Leeds in the first round of the Football League Trophy against Bradford City. Another impressive performance beyond his years prompted manager McAllister to give Aidan his first League start for Leeds which came in a 2-0 win over Carlisle United on the 20th September, 2008. Further strong performances from White in the season 2008-09 earned the Loiner a contract at Elland Road which lasts until June 2012.

The Leeds United manager Neil Warnock signed Adam Drury on the 1st July, 2012 from Norwich City on a free transfer. The experienced Defender had been a long time favourite of the United boss, having tried to sign him in the past Warnock told the official site "He's a very good professional. I think he's a good defender, he's quick and I thought we needed a bit of experience in certain places, and that desire and will. And with Adam you know what you're going to get...."
