Experienced goalkeeper Alex Cairns has re-signed for Leeds United on a two-year contract.

The 31-year-old came through the Whites' academy and made his professional debut with the club before leaving for Chesterfield in 2015.

He spent last term with Salford City, keeping eight clean sheets in his 46 League Two appearances, having featured on loan with the Ammies the season before.

Cairns was also instrumental in the Ammies' Carabao Cup penalty shootout win against Leeds last season.
