Red Bull Salzburg midfielder Brenden Aaronson has signed for Leeds United on a five-year contract.
Sky Sports News understands that the 21-year-old joined for a fee of 29 million euros. The move will be completed on July 1.
Aaronson made 41 appearances in all competitions for Salzburg last season, providing 10 assists and scoring six goals, helping the club win the Austrian Bundesliga and Austrian Cup for the second consecutive season.
Leeds first attempted to sign the United States international during the January transfer window. Aaronson is primarily an attacking midfielder, but he’s also capable of playing in a range of roles, and it’s his versatility that will excite head coach Jesse Marsch.
