Leeds have completed the signing of striker Marcus Antonsson from Kalmar, it was announced on Tuesday afternoon.
The 25-year-old, who reportedly trained with the Championship club on Monday, has penned a three-year deal.
It was widely reported last week that Antonssson had agreed to sign for Leeds from Swedish club Kalmar and become Garry Monk’s first signing since taking charge.
The Yorkshire giants announced on their official website that the deal had been completed although insisted that it is still subject to international clearance.
The fee has not been disclosed although it has been reported that it could rise to £2million with add-ons.

Antonsson has previously worked under Leeds’ new assistant manager Pep Clotet at Swedish side Halmstads BK, and the highly sought after forward becomes Monk’s first addition to the squad.
The striker has scored 13 goals in 18 appearances for the Scandinavian club, including an impressive 10 strikes in 12 league matches this season to make him the top scorer in the Swedish league.
Antonsson, 25, joined Kalmar last year on a free transfer and signed a three-year contract that has now been cut short to enable him to move to Elland Road.
