Lee Peltier says he is "buzzing" after completing his switch from Leicester City at the weekend.
The 25-year-old sealed his move on Saturday afternoon before traveling across to Preston where delighted boss Neil Warnock introduced him to fans after the final whistle.
Lee signed a three-year contract, confirming weeks of media speculation that he was set to join United, despite interest from a host of clubs.
"It was a long process, but I'm buzzing now it's all sorted," said the former Liverpool trainee. "I couldn't wait to get stuck in with my first session on Monday.
"I wouldn't say the past few weeks have been frustrating, but when things go on for a while they get to you. I was at a good club, but I knew it was time to move on and as soon as I knew Leeds wanted me I wanted to come here.
"I had a few options, but I sat down with my family and friends, and went through them all, and Leeds was my first choice. You look at the fan base and the size of the club is massive, the gaffer can attract players with his record, and I wanted to come here."
Lee started his career at Liverpool as youngster and after moving on to Yeovil he spent two seasons with Huddersfield in League One before stepping up to the Championship with Leicester after the Terriers failed to win promotion in 2011.
Lee was signed by Sven Goran Eriksson at Leicester, but the former England boss was replaced by Nigel Pearson, and the new boss has looked to re-shuffle.
"I enjoyed my time at Leicester and made a lot of good friends, but it was time to move on and this is a new chapter in my career," said Lee.
"The manager hasn't hidden that he wants promotion and I've bought into what he had to say. I was looking though the fixtures, there's some good teams and it's going to be a good season.
"Most of the teams I've been to have been in the same situation with ambitions of promotion so I'm used to that and I just want to get cracking."
United fans may remember Lee as an attacking full-back from his appearances against us for both Yeovil and Huddersfield.
"I'm an honest player who can work hard," he said. "I like to get forward. First and foremost I'm a defender, but if there's a chance to get forward I will."
