Whites sign Benfica prospect.
Leeds United are pleased to confirm the signing of Oliver Sarkic from Portuguese outfit Benfica for an undisclosed fee.
Sarkic initially joined the club over the summer on loan, but the Whites have now made the deal permanent.
The 20-year-old, who has been capped at various youth levels by Montenegro, has put pen to paper on a deal until June 2020 and the club has the option to extend this by a further year.
Sarkic has been a regular in Carlos Corberan’s Under-23 side this season and celebrated signing for the Whites, by netting a penalty in Thursday’s 4-3 victory over Hull City at Thorp Arch.
