Eddie Nketiah: Hopefully I can help take the club forward

Forward on joining Leeds.

New Leeds United signing Eddie Nketiah spoke exclusively to LUTV after completing his move from Premier League side Arsenal.

The 20-year-old forward has penned a season-long loan deal with the Whites, becoming the club’s sixth signing of the summer.

The deal was completed on transfer deadline day and Nketiah admitted he is looking forward to getting started at Elland Road.

“It’s a great feeling to get it over the line and I’m really excited and looking forward to the future,” said Nketiah.

“Hopefully I can develop how I want to develop and hopefully I can help the club reach its goals.

“This club is such a big club, with a big history and the manager played a big part, I want to learn under him.

“He has worked with such great players already and helped them develop in their careers.

“I feel he is a very demanding coach and I am eager to learn and eager to improve, so I think we will get along well and hopefully it will be the best match and combination for Leeds and myself.

“I know you need to work hard to get to the top and I am here to work hard and do all I can to help the team and improve as a player.

“It’s been flattering to have a lot of interest, but Leeds, with the fan base from what I have seen on social media has been really welcoming.

“The style of play was also a big part in me coming here over other clubs, this is the play that I like and feel like I will suit.

“The methods of the manager are great and hopefully I can add my own spin and help take the club forward.”
