Medical underway: Leeds United set to complete striker signing

Niklas Haugland is set to undergo a medical at Leeds United today ahead of a switch to Elland Road, according to Football Insider.

Leeds are set to beat off competition from a host of top clubs across Europe and land Haugland, who is a highly rated young striker.

Haugland currently plays for Fana IL, who play in the third tier in Norway.

Leeds have decided to press ahead with this deal after Haugland spent some time on trial with the Whites earlier in the summer.

The 16-year-old has also had a trial at Bayern Munich, but Leeds are poised to beat the German giants and Bundesliga champions to this signing.

Bayern Munich and Leeds were not alone in their admiration of Haugland.

AC Milan and Red Bull Salzburg have also run the rule over the Norwegian teenager during a trial spell recently but Leeds are set to win the race with his medical underway.

The Verdict

Haugland is one for the future, rather than an immediate first-team signing.

But beating the likes of Bayern Munich and AC Milan to this signing is a real statement of intent.

The talented teenager certainly looks an impressive prospect and Leeds fans will be excited to see him progress through their youth ranks.
