Leeds United have confirmed the signing of talented left back Laurens De Bock as they continue to improve their squad.
De Bock is Leeds’ third signing of the season and joins to cover the clubs problem position of left back.
The 25-year old signs from Belgian side Club Brugge where he had fallen somewhat out of favour.
The defender joins Leeds on a four and a half year deal for a fee expected to be around £1.5million, a minute fee compared to the £6millilm Brugge rejected in summer for the defender.
It seems that Leeds have truly strengthened in a position that the club was really struggling with having been playing Gaetano Berardi out of position and the lacklustre performances of Cameron Borthwick-Jackson.
The flying Belgian is known for his attacking intent and joins Leeds with an impressive CV, having played more than 130 games for Brugge with 27 of them coming in European competitions.
It’s highly expected that due to the injury of Luke Ayling, De Bock could be set for his debut in Saturday’s away clash at Ipswich Town and here’s hoping he has a stormer.
