Leeds United have signed striker Caleb Ekuban from Italian club Chievo Verona for an undisclosed fee.

The 23-year-old has agreed a four-year contract to move to the Championship outfit.

A product of Chievo’s youth system, Ekuban spent last season on loan in Albania with FK Partizani, for whom he played in the the Champions League and Europa League preliminary rounds.

He made 34 appearances in the Kategoria Superiore for Partizani, scoring 17 goals, as the club finished runners-up in the division.

Ekuban could feature for the Whites for the first time in Wednesday’s friendly clash with North Ferriby United and will travel to Austria on the squad’s pre-season tour later this week.
