Leeds United newcomer Eddie Nketiah takes to Instagram after completing loan move

Leeds United have confirmed the signing of promising Arsenal forward Eddie Nketiah on a season-long deal.

The 20-year-old prodigy joins the Whites as their sixth signing of the summer, following the arrivals of Jack Clarke, Helder Costa, Jack Harrison and Illan Meslier and Ben White before him.

Nketiah captioned it as “New season. New challenge” and stated how he simply cannot wait to get started with his new team.

The forward made his maiden appearance for the Gunners back in September 2017 and just last season, in 2018/19, he made nine appearances for the senior squad.

He also appeared for England at youth level, climbing the ranks from their U18 to the U21 team.

The fans will have high hopes for the youngster, who has huge boots to fill amid Kemar Roofe’s departure.

Naturally, he will not be expected to emulate the prowess of Leeds’ top goalscorer last season, but he will need to step up to ease the pressure on Patrick Bamford and provide Marcelo Bielsa with an alternative option at centre forward.
