Leeds United have wasted no time in making their summer transfer moves so far, as Rasmus Kristensen follows Brenden Aaronson through the door at Elland Road from RB Salzburg.

The Dane joins on a five-year deal having temporarily departed the Denmark training camp to complete his medical and sign on the dotted line at Thorp Arch.

Leeds have reportedly beat the likes of Borussia Dortmund and Brentford to the punch as Kristensen was a highly-touted target for a number of clubs this summer.

And no wonder. Kristensen managed 10 goals and 8 assists from right-back in the 2021/22 campaign. On top of that, he has impressed in the red and white of Denmark too, with six caps to his name including two impressive performances of late against France and Austria.

The fee is reportedly in the region of £10 million, bringing Leeds’ spending (and RB Salzburg’s inflows) to roughly £35 million so far this window.

After starting his career at FC Midtjylland, Kristensen had a brief spell at Ajax before moving to Salzburg, where he has earned his big move to The Premier League, where he will compete with the currently injured Luke Ayling and promising talent, Cody Drameh if he does not go out on loan again.
