Kristoffer Klaesson completes move to Leeds United

Goalkeeper signs for the Whites.

Leeds United are pleased to announce the signing of goalkeeper Kristoffer Klaesson.

The 20-year-old joins the Whites from Norwegian side Vålerenga for an undisclosed fee.

Following a successful medical, the goalkeeper has penned a four-year-deal at Elland Road, running until the summer of 2025.

Klaesson made his Vålerenga debut against FK Haugesund in June 2019, helping them to a 4-1 victory.

He went on to become first choice goalkeeper for the Eliteserien outfit, going on to make a further 56 appearances.

This term, the shot-stopper has featured 14 times for Vålerenga, who currently sit in seventh spot, halfway through their league campaign.

Klaesson has also already amassed 38 caps for his native Norway at youth level, from Under-15s to Under-21s.

He will add further competition amongst the goalkeeper ranks at Leeds, alongside Illan Meslier.

Klaesson is the club’s sixth arrival of the summer transfer window, following the signings of Lewis Bate, Junior Firpo, Jack Harrison, Sean McGurk and Amari Miller.
