Leeds United have completed the signing of Manchester City attacker Ian Poveda – and some of the club’s supporters on Twitter are ecstatic that he’s joined.
The Whites confirmed on their official website on Friday evening that the 19-year-old has joined on a permanent basis from reigning Premier League champions Manchester City.
He’s penned a deal with the Yorkshire giants that expires in the summer of 2024 and arrives with a decent reputation.
The teenage winger has impressed in recent years with Manchester City’s academy and also earned one senior appearance with them.
He’s represented England at international level at the Under-20 age group and will now look to make his first real big step into senior action at club level.
A selection of Leeds supporters on social media have responded to Poveda’s arrival at Elland Road and are expecting big things from him.
There may take some time for him to bed into the intense style of his new manager Marcelo Bielsa, but has had the chance to train regularly under Pep Guardiola.
He is going to provide a fresh option in wide areas with his pace and skill, which fans will hope can help them push for promotion from the Championship.
Here are some Leeds fans reacting to Poveda joining:
