Danish international on joining United…

New United midfielder Casper Sloth has spoken for the first time since joining the club and says that he is excited to be here.

The Danish international was one of 15 signings United made during the summer transfer window and he says he wanted to be part of the project happening at the club.

“I’m settling in very well and I’m excited to be here. It’s been a good first week and I’m very satisfied,” said Casper.

“The move was very quick but I didn’t expect to start on Saturday. It was obviously nice to play at Elland Road and we got a win so that was brilliant.

“I knew Leeds were interested and I knew the history of the club. I wanted to be part of the project here.

“We have brought a lot of new players in and it is really interesting to me. So I’m really satisfied to be here.”

The midfielder’s move to England was an easy one to make as the Dane says that every footballer wants to play in the English game.

“In Denmark you see a lot of Premier League football, not so much in the Championship,” explained Sloth. “But every footballer wants to play in England, it is a massive footballing country.

“When I heard that Leeds were interested in me I spoke to people here and thought that it would be a good fit.

“The players here are nice guys and they have taken good care of me so it hasn’t been a problem.”

Casper made his United debut on Saturday against Bolton Wanderers at Elland Road and with a win under his belt he is now hoping that the team can grow and improve together.

“It was a very nice experience,” said the Denmark international. “Elland Road is fantastic stadium.

“I am already looking forward to play there again. The crowd was very good and when I was substituted they seemed satisfied and that was a great experience for me.

“I’m a box to box player. I like to get on the ball and set the tempo and set my teammates up. I also like to shoot on goal. I like the position as a number 10.

“Hopefully now we can develop as a team and as individuals. It was nice to get a win in my first game but we will grow.”
