Twitter Reacts: Leeds United sign Ezgjan Alioski

The ex-Lugano player clinched a four-year deal with Leeds United after quick negotiations with the team from Elland Road.

The Whites' official website confirmed the attacker's contract at Elland Road will run until the summer of 2021.

Saiz had been in England since Monday following a delay in finalising the terms of the Spanish midfielder's £3million arrival but Alioski tied up a rapid switch after travelling from Switzerland to undergo a medical yesterday.

The new signing will now join his team-mates for their pre-season tour of Austria where they are set to face FC Ingolstadt in a friendly on Sunday.

Aloski's first full season at the club saw him make 36 appearances with an impressive return of 17 goals and 14 assists - finishing the campaign as the club's top goal scorer and third overall in the Swiss Super League.

Speaking last night, Alioski said: "I'm happy to be here". Now I'm here with a big club with big history.

This has been one of the most eagerly anticipated signings for Leeds United.

Toumani Diagouraga and Lee Erwin, who are likely to be left behind today as the rest of the squad head to Austria, are both into the final 12 months of their respective contracts at the Championship club and spent previous year out on loan.

Ekuban signed a four-year deal on Tuesday, joining from Chievo for a fee believed to be worth around £500,000.
