Leeds United Announce Signing of Ezgjan Alioski From FC Lugano on 4-Year Deal
Leeds United's spending spree has continued as they have now unveiled the club's ninth and newest signing, Ezgjan Alioski from Swiss side FC Lugano for an undisclosed fee.
The Whites' official website confirmed the attacker's contract at Elland Road will run until the summer of 2021.
The forward is seemingly a largely unknown entity but is said to have attracted interest from the likes of Italian side Atalanta, Swiss giants Basel and German side Hertha Berlin before settling on a move to the Championship with Leeds.
The 25-year-old came through the ranks at Young Boys before making the move to Swiss club FC Schaffhausen in 2013, where he spent three seasons prior to joining FC Lugano, initially on-loan before a permanent move last summer.
Aloski's first full season at the club saw him make 36 appearances with an impressive return of 17 goals and 14 assists - finishing the campaign as the club's top goal scorer and third overall in the Swiss Super League.
The club's new manager Thomas Christiansen has certainly already made his mark on the squad by introducing seven new faces to the club throughout the summer as he builds up for a season filled with high expectation from the Elland Road faithful.
The Macedonia international is set to link up with his new teammates for the club's pre-season tour of Austria, where he could get his first taste of action as a Leeds player in Sunday's friendly with FC Ingolstadt.
