Leeds have announced the signing of Hamburg forward Pierre-Michael Lassoga.
The German forward joins the Whites on an initial season long loan. However, it has not been disclosed whether Leeds have an option to purchase the player at the end of the season.
Lassoga has spent a turbulent time at Hamburg prior to his move away, having joined after a successful loan spell.
The 25 year old has struggled for goals and a starting place at the Volsparkstadion and only made 20 appearances last season, scoring a measly two goals. A new move to English football could reinvent the player and start his career again.
Although mans fans will question the signing of Lassoga, the scouting team have so far been performing effectively in the transfer market; signing stars including Samu Saiz, Ezgjan Alioski and Cameron Borthwick-Jackson to name a few.
Leeds were initially interested in Lassoga back in June but a deal has taken a long time to agree on due to the players extraordinary wages of £50k a week.
The deal has now been agreed and Leeds will be looking to the closing transfer window with an abundance of attacking options; including Kemar Roofe, Caleb Ekuban, Jay Roy Grot, Pawel Cibicki and now Lassoga.
Is Lassoga a good signing for Leeds? Or should they have looked to spend the cash available from the Wood deal to sign a proven Championship forward? Have your say in the comments below.
