Leeds have confirmed the signing of Valencia’s striker Rodrigo.
Leeds, who were promoted to the Premier League at the end of last season, have confirmed the signing of Rodrigo from Spanish side Valencia.
The Premier League side confirmed the record-breaking signing worth £35million.
The 29-year old striker has signed a four-year deal with Marcelo Biesla’s side that is making a return to the top-flight league.
The forward had a medical on Wednesday having agreed to a move after being persuaded by Leeds director of football Victor Orta and owner Andrea Radrizzani who visited Valencia on Monday to finalise the deal.
Rodrigo has been an important player for Valencia in recent seasons, scoring 19 goals in the 2017-2018 campaign and 15 in 2018-2019, in which they won the Copa del Rey.
He only managed seven goals last season in an underwhelming campaign on a personal note as he missed the last few weeks of the campaign with a knee injury.
His assists record is also impressive with 28 in all competitions over the last three years.
Valencia’s failure to qualify for Europe next season means they are having to sell several of their best players with Ferran Torres leaving to join Manchester City while Dani Parejo and Francis Coquelin have also departed to Villarreal.
