Leeds UnitedLeeds United complete the £28million signing of Brenden Aaronson after they avoided relegation on the final day of the Premier League season, according to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano. After a thrilling final day of Premier League action on Sunday, Jesse Marsch's men guaranteed survival. The order was easy to come into play - Leeds needed to improve on Burnley's result against Newcastle but they had to wait until the very last moment. Now it appears the Leeds hierarchy is wasting no time and is keen to make their mark in the transfer window by bolstering their exhausted squad with the signing of playmaker Aaronson, 21, who was the subject of two failed January bids. Leeds finalize deal with Brenden Aaronson, things are about to kick off. Full deal reached with RB Salzburg and paperwork to be prepared soon, deal worth £28m, as reported yesterday. The Premier League club had two rejected offers for the Red Bull Salzburg man, a £15m offer followed by a better offer of around £20m towards the end of the winter window. However, Leeds director of football Victor Orta was determined to sign the talented midfielder and traveled to Austria for transfer talks with Salzburg officials, while Marsch's appointment seemed to improve the chances of such a deal. It is now understood that a summer deal has been agreed between the clubs for some time, while personal terms have also been agreed with the player, but their relegation situation proved a major obstacle. And with that out of the way, Leeds are likely to act quickly and reach an agreement in the coming days, with an official announcement expected in the next few days. Leeds striking a deal to sign Aaronson early in the summer window is an excellent deal as it gives them an edge over their rivals. The 21-year-old forward has certainly had an impressive season, making 41 appearances, including six goals and ten assists. He's also featured in eight Champions League games this season, so he's got a lot of experience for someone his age. Aaronson's arrival will add energy and dynamism to Marsch's midfield, while his strong American relationship with the former Salzburg head coach will further help him adjust to the demands of the Premier League. But with some smart deals and exciting talent like Joe Gelhardt coming through their production line, Leeds could take a potential hit.
