Duo speak about new arrival.
Leeds United director of football Victor Orta and head coach Jesse Marsch have spoken exclusively to the club’s official website, following the news Brenden Aaronson will join the Whites on July 1st 2022.
Aaronson has agreed to a five-year-deal at Elland Road running until the summer of 2027.
Orta and Marsch were both thrilled that the club have managed to secure the services of the attacking midfielder.
“We’re pleased to have reached this agreement, we’ve been really impressed with the talent and skill set of Brenden, along with all the physical data collected on him,” said Orta.
“We believe he will improve the squad and we are really happy, it is very difficult to find a young player of this level, especially with Champions League experience.
“He can play in a number of positions and we believe he is the perfect player fit for us.
“We’ve been interested in Brenden for a long time and with taking the decision to hire Jesse Marsch and their experience of working together in the past, we wanted to close the deal as soon as possible which we now have done.
Marsch added: “Brenden is an incredibly hard worker and we’re pleased to welcome him to the club.
“He adapts very well to tactical ideas and levels of play and his mentality is to do whatever it takes to help the team succeed.
“I know he will fit in here perfectly with our players and club with this mindset.”
