Leeds United are expected to complete the £12m signing of Joel Piroe from Swansea on Thursday, according to a report by the Daily Mail.

Writing on their official website (24 August), the newspaper report that the 24-year-old striker is set to move to Elland Road after they upped their interest in him this week.

The Dutch youth international has also attracted interest from the likes of Southampton but Leeds have moved quickly and Daniel Farke has now got his new number 9 for their promotion charge.

Leeds are closing in on an agreement to sign striker Joel Piroe from Champions rivals Swansea,” they wrote

The deal is expected to be completed on Thursday, with the two clubs agreeing a fee worth around £12million for the 24-year-old.

It seems like the 49ers have moved quickly with this one to ensure there was no way that they went without in the striker department this summer.


Patrick Bamford’s fitness issues are a major concern for the manager this season and after losing Rodrigo and Brendan Aaronson some incoming were needed.

Piroe has proven himself at this level and arguably looked ready to step up now, but Leeds have clearly made him an attractive offer and he could now step up to the Premier League next season with us if he performs once again.

£12m represents good value for Piroe, although with one year remaining on his contract at Swansea they probably wanted to pay less.
