New striker on joining Leeds
Leeds United’s latest signing Caleb Ekuban spoke exclusively to LUTV after joining the club from Chievo Verona.
The forward completed his move to the Whites on Tuesday, penning a four year contract at Elland Road.
Ekuban expressed his happiness at completing his move from Serie A, to England.
“It’s a pleasure and a dream coming true, ever since I was a little boy I wanted to play at a high level and this is a great club, so I’m very happy to be here,” said Ekuban.
“At the end of the season I was talking to my agent about a move and this opportunity with Leeds came up.
“As soon as it did, I cancelled all contact with other clubs, because I knew this was the move for me.
“Before I arrived here I knew about Leeds United playing against AC Milan in the Champions League and I also remember they had a great striker- Tony Yeobah, so I know about the club, but I have a lot more to learn about Leeds.
“This is a very big step for me but I am not scared because football is the same everywhere.
“I hope to get into a good rhythm as soon as possible and to improve, I can play on the left, right or centre, wherever the coach needs me to play.
“Chris Wood is an amazing player and I hope I can give him a hand to score as many goals as last season.
“The dream is to play in the Premier League – I think it is the best league in the world and I hope to achieve this dream with Leeds United.
“I am looking forward to meeting my team mates and I can’t wait to get going.”
