Leeds United confirmed the signing of Robin Koch on Saturday evening.
After 16 years away from the Premier League, the Whites are launching an attack on the top-flight to make sure they stick around.
The German international joined Rodrigo from Valencia at Elland Road, with Andrea Radrizzani committing over £40million on transfers.
Radrizzani has been in Spain with Victor Orta sealing that move for Rodrigo, but that hasn’t stopped him from being in contact with Koch as well.
Leeds shared a selection of pictures of the 24-year-old’s busy day, and one of them included the Whites’ influential owner.
One of those showed Radrizzani facetiming with his new defender, presumably welcoming him to West Yorkshire ahead of what promises to be a wild season.
Leeds could have pulled off a masterclass with the signing of the German international, who has only cost the Whites £13million.
The move may have looked like it happened quickly, but it is actually on the back of six months work from the likes of Radrizzani and Marcelo Bielsa.
In his first meeting with the local press, Koch shared how he had been in contact with the Whites for almost a year.
Those meetings included video clips of how Leeds play, and how Koch played while at Freiburg – something he admitted was very similar.
Radrizzani is having a great summer in charge of Leeds, and he isn’t stopping there it seems – Koch and Rodrigo are just the start.
