Snodgrass started his career at Livingston - playing with current City star Wes Hoolahan in the 2006/07 season - where he scored 15 goals in 79 league games and attracted interest from Barcelona before signing for Leeds in July 2008.
The Scottish international made a big impression during his first season at Elland Road and picked up the Regional Members Clubs’ Player of the Season Award in 2008/09.
The left winger signed a new four-year contract with the club at the beginning of the 2009/10 season before passing 100 appearances as the club won promotion to the Championship.
The 25-year-old finished the 2011/12 season with 13 goals and 14 assists - the second-highest in the Championship and was voted both Leeds’ Fans Player of the Year and Players’ Player of the Year.
Following Neil Warnock’s appointment as manager Snodgrass was handed the captain’s armband and also offered a contract that Warnock described as “the best at the club.”
