Leeds United have announced the signing of Rasmus Kristensen from Red Bull Salzburg.

The Premier League club have announced on their official website that they have reached an agreement with Salzburg over the signing of Kristensen.

The 24-year-old will officially join Leeds on July 1, 2022 and has already agreed a five-year contract with the West Yorkshire club.

Kristensen told Leeds’s official website: “When I heard about the interest I looked at the project and what was going on and I was never in doubt, I was 100 per cent convinced,” said Kristensen.

“It’s a huge historical club which is playing in the best league in the world and for me, it fits everything that I love about a football club.

“I know a lot of things about the club, where I am from, a small village, most of my father’s mates are Leeds fans.

“I want to compete against the best and I will do that here. I see myself as a physical, emotional power player, I like to go forward, run up and down the flank and I have a big engine for that.

“I’m a guy who puts 100 per cent effort in every time I’m on the pitch and I’ll die with my boots on.

“It’s been a great few days with the national team, playing games, flying in and out, it’s been busy but good.

“With the national team having four games in the Nations League, it fit in perfectly to come to Leeds in-between the two days with a day off from the national team coach, so I’m pleased and happy that everything is settled and everything is done.”

Leeds can be backed at 20/1 on Betfair to finish in the Premier League top four next season.
