Here is what Brenden Aaronson told Sky Sports about his transfer to Leeds: “I like to say I was a football addict growing up watching the Premier League games, it’s a dream to be here.

“I had to play with my team and give them my all with Red Bull Salzburg and give them all I had for the rest of the season. I was focused on that but also I was looking at the results from Leeds and this last one had me sweating a little bit.

“He [Marsch] was definitely a factor but in general the club was just a massive pull for me. How big, how historic, how the fans are, how the team is, it’s a dream place for me.” 

The 21-year-old has been nicknamed the ‘Medford Messi’ due to his eye-catching footwork. He made 41 appearances across all competitions for the Austrian side last season, scoring six goals and providing 10 assists. His versatility will be a big factor for Leeds, and will help them with their performance in the attacking third going forward.
