Leeds United have announced the signing of Jay Roy Grot on a four year deal.
Grot, a current Netherlands Under 19 international joined Leeds for a fee of around £1.5million and could be set to feature for the club in their next clash against Nottingham Forest.
The striker joins Leeds from Dutch outfit NEC after having a solid debut season at the club, making 30 appearances and scoring six goals.
A previously linked move to Fiorentina was scuppered early on in the transfer window, with the Seria A giants unable to agree a fee with NEC for his services.
Standing at a towering 6'3, Grot not only brings height to a Leeds forward line that now does not include Chris Wood, the striker also brings pace and skill to a Leeds squad currently short of strikers.
With the loss of Wood, Leeds were forced to play Kemar Roofe as the lone striker in Tuesdays game against Newport County and with Caleb Ekuban sidelined it was clear that Leeds needed reinforcements in that position.
Grot, another surprise foreign signing located by Director of Football Victor Orta will be hoping to make an instant impact at Elland Road akin to the likes of Samuel Saiz and Ezgjan Alioski.
The pair have been heralded already as superb signings after pulling off consecutive superb displays for Leeds.
