RB Salzburg midfielder Aaronson joins Leeds


London (AFP) – Leeds have signed Red Bull Salzburg and United States midfielder Brenden Aaronson on a five-year deal, the Premier League club announced on Thursday.

The 21-year-old, who worked under Leeds boss Jesse Marsch during his time in charge at the Austrian club, will formally complete his move to Elland Road for an undisclosed fee on July 1.

“Leeds United are delighted to announce an agreement with Red Bull Salzburg for the transfer of Brenden Aaronson, which will be completed on July 1, 2022,” the Yorkshire club said in a statement.

“The 21-year-old will join for an undisclosed fee on a five-year contract, running until the summer of 2027. The transfer is subject to the necessary international clearance and a work permit.”

Aaronson made 41 appearances in all competitions for Salzburg in the 2021/22 season as they won the Austrian Bundesliga and Austrian Cup.

Leeds finished 17th in the Premier League table, just one point above the relegation zone after winning at Brentford in a dramatic final-day escape.

    I hope Leeds can sign an other Yank too. Maybe Tyler Adams. Maybe Evan Horvath can be brought in as a cheap backup that might get more minutes than he did as the Nott For backup keeper.

    Fulham needs yanks too. Antoniee Robinson is there. I don’t think Tim Ream will stick around as he is one of those guys who is great at the English 2nd division but not good enough for Premier League. I recommend that they sign Danhausen! (look him up on your favorite search engine)
