Leeds United have already secured the first signing of the Thomas Christiansen era when they completed the signing of Poland midfielder Mateusz Klich at the end of last week.

The central midfielder is set to be the first of many new arrivals at Elland Road in a whirlwind of transfer activity in the coming weeks as the club completely overhaul the squad that challenged strongly for promotion under Garry Monk last season before a final-month collapse.

Recently appointed director of football Victor Orta has been charged with providing Christiansen with a team capable of securing promotion to the Premier League.

The recruitment chief made it clear last week that he was operating within a budget but Leeds fans are more optimistic than they have been for years despite the departure of the popular Monk.

With erratic former owner Massimo Cellino now out of the picture and Andrea Radrizzani in sole control, Leeds announced on Wednesday night that they had secured a deal to reclaim ownership of Elland Road for the first time in 13 years in a deal costing a reported £20million.

The club have also been strongly linked with a string of players with fine reputations across Europe and who would appear to have the pedigree to make a big impact in the Championship next season.

Indeed, it has been reported that progress is being made on eight new signings to follow the arrival of Klich, who has been captured from FC Twente for a fee of around £1.5million.
