David Norris has hailed Leeds United director of football Victor Orta following an impressive start to the transfer window.
Firpo penned a four-year deal after a £13million fee was agreed between the two sides and the left-back admitted Orta played a key role in persuading him Elland Road was the right place to progress his career.
Will Junior Firpo be a success at Leeds United?
Former Leeds midfielder Norris insists Orta’s influence must not be underestimated when it comes to judging the club’s success in the transfer market.
Speaking exclusively to TIF, he said: “He deserves massive credit. They must do loads of research, background checks, watch the players and find out all their personal stuff to make sure they’re the right fit for the club.
“Orta is a massive part of that so a lot of credit will go to him when it comes to the players coming in.”
