Yesterday afternoon, Leeds United officially announced the signing of former Southampton striker Billy Sharp.

The 28 year-old played a crucial role in the Saints’ promotion to the Premier League in 2012, but he struggled for game-time in the top flight, spending the last two years on loan to Nottingham Forest, Reading and former club Doncaster.

Sharp’s goalscoring credentials at Championship level are undoubted however, and following the departure of talismanic forward Ross McCormack, Whites fans will hope the former Sheffield United youngster can replace the Scot’s netting prowess.

So in honour of his move to Elland Road, here’s FIVE things Billy Sharp will bring to Leeds United.
