Kristoffer Klaesson completes Leeds medical

Kristoffer Klaesson has completed his medical at Leeds United ahead of completing his move to Elland Road this week

That’s according to LUFC FANZONE, who have shared that he will put pen-to-paper on a five-year contract with the Whites.

Klaesson will go straight into the first-team and provide competition for Illan Meslier by replacing Kiko Casilla.

Sharing the news on their personal Instagram account on Friday evening, it appears as though Klaesson will be announced this weekend.

“Kristoffer Klaesson (20) has undergone a medical in Leeds this afternoon and is set to sign a five-year deal at Leeds,” they wrote.

Done deal.

This was a deal that was supposed to be confirmed on Friday, but the medical and media duties are likely to have pushed that back.

It is likely that the move will be confirmed on social media channels at some point today, and unleash Victor Orta onto other targets.

With the game against Real Betis at Loughborough this afternoon, Klaesson won’t be involved, or maybe even present after completing his quarantine.

Ajax and Villareal are our final two and biggest games of the pre-season before the trip to Manchester United in two weeks.

Klaesson may get his debut in one of those, but it would be no surprise if Marcelo Bielsa makes him wait until the Carabao Cup – he doesn’t just hand out starts – even in friendlies.

Another deal has been all but complete, and then we can move on to our midfield and attacking targets in this final month.
