Alfonso Pedraza: Joins Leeds on loan

Leeds have completed the loan signing of highly-rated Spanish winger Alfonso Pedraza, with an option to purchase for £8.5million this summer.

The 20-year-old has joined from La Liga outfit Villarreal after spending the first half of the season on loan with Spanish Segunda División outfit CD Lugo – where he scored six goals and made eight assists in 23 appearances.

Pedraza, a Spain Under-21 international, has been given the number 20 shirt at Elland Road and will strengthen their wide options as they continue in their battle for promotion to the Premier League.

Pedraza may not be the only loan arrival on deadline day, with Swansea’s Modou Barrow strongly tipped to be reunited with his former boss Garry Monk.
