David Healy Homepage
 

David arrived at Elland Road after weeks of speculation and wrangling with Preston North End for his signature.

The Ulsterman was out of contract at the end of the season with Preston, and having turned down a new deal with the Lilywhites, meant Kevin Blackwell was able to pay considerably less than he might have expected to for an international player with proven goalscoring abilities.

Healy began his career as a trainee at Old Trafford but only made three substitutes appearances for them.  After impressing former Preston boss David Moyes whilst on loan, he made a permanent move to Deepdale in a deal worth 1.5m in January 2001.

In just over three seasons with Preston he scored 44 goals in 120 starts for the Lilywhites and at international level is currently Northern Ireland's all time leading goalscorer with 15 goals from 39 appearances.

Ironically his first goals for the club, a double strike, came against former club Preston on his first return to Deepdale, helping Leeds to a 4-2 win.
