The versatile 27-year-old has returned to the John Smith’s Stadium for a second spell following an eventful two years at Elland Road.

During his time with Leeds, Peltier skippered the side but also saw off-field distractions destabilise the club and lead him to take in a loan spell at Nottingham Forest.

A short stint at the City Ground helped to rekindle Peltier’s love for the game, having grown disillusioned with life at Leeds, and he is delighted to have now joined an ambitious project at Huddersfield under the guidance of Mark Robins.

He told the Yorkshire Evening Post: “I just think I need to move on now.

“When I went to Forest on loan last season, I didn’t realise how much I wasn’t enjoying my football until I joined them.

“I really enjoyed myself there and after that, I felt it was time for a fresh change, obviously with everything that was going on and things like that.

“We both mutually agreed the decision and that was the outcome.”

On the takeover troubles endured at Leeds, Peltier added: “It’s part and parcel of football.

“It was just one of those things, but what happened has unsettled a lot of people and obviously unsettled the fans and players with what went on.

“It was hard times. The lads were unsettled and it created a lot of uncertainty when the lads needed a bit of stability in terms of where the club was going.

“But I think the fans deserve that more than anyone as they are the main people at the club. If Leeds get that stability and get going again, they have the potential to be a massive club and hopefully (Massimo) Cellino will do that.

“But the amount of times people have heard that with Leeds owners…GFH were supposed to be doing that.”

Trial And Error Rather Than Transition

S

unday, Sunday. Will there be a fan of either team, who if they are winning after 80 mins, won't still be nervous? This could be anything from 0-0 to 5-5, and no one would bat an eye.
