Leeds United have reacted with delight after the club announced they have signed Celtic defender Leo Hjelde.

United told their they had signed the 18-year-old on a four-year for an undisclosed fee. The Norwegian becomes the club’s seventh signing of the summer window and will initially link up with the Under-23 side.

The club’s official Twitter page released the news online and it didn’t take before a collection of Leeds flocked to the announcement.

Here’s what these Leeds said…


“Champions here we come.”
Despite his young age, Hjelde is clearly rated very highly by a large section of the Leeds faithful.

With multiple caps at international youth level and a loan spell Scottish Premiership side Ross County already under his belt, it looks as though the teenager has a very bright future indeed.

Though at such a tender age, it may take some time before the United get to see him in action for the senior team – they might well have to be patient on this one just yet.
