Leo Hjelde joins Rotherham United on loan

Defender joins Championship side.

Leeds United can confirm Leo Hjelde has joined Sky Bet Championship side Rotherham United, on loan until the end of the 2022/23 season.  

The 19-year-old joined the Whites at the beginning of the 2021/22 campaign and has made five first team appearances since his arrival, whilst also impressing in the Under-21s side during that time. 

With the ability to play both at left-back and in central defence, Hjelde will now head to the AESSEAL New York Stadium looking to gain further experience and game time with the Millers. 

Rotherham are currently 21st in the table and will be continuing their fight to secure their safety in the division, under manager Matt Taylor. 

We would like wish Leo the best of luck during his time with Rotherham United.
