Andrea Radrizzani has welcomed Leeds’ new signing Mateusz Klich to the club and told him to “enjoy” the forthcoming Championship season.

The Yorkshire outfit confirmed on their official website that the 27-year-old midfielder has made a switch from Dutch side FC Twente and penned a three-year contract with the club.

Poland international Klich is the first new name to arrive at Elland Road this summer, with the club’s head coach Thomas Christiansen likely to add new faces to his squad.

Owner Radrizzani, who appointed Christiansen as the club’s new senior man earlier on this month, will be hoping the club’s new recruit can guide Leeds to a top-six finish next term.

The Italian, who completed his full takeover of the club in May, sent this Twitter message to Klich after a deal had been agreed with the experienced man.

“Welcome Mateusz,” Radrizzani wrote on his personal Twitter account. “Let’s enjoy a great season.”

Midfielder Klich helped FC Twente secure a seventh-placed finish during the recently concluded campaign in Holland.

Over the course of the season, he played 29 league games for his side, finding the back of the net on six occasions and supplying four assists.

It is the first time in his career that Klich will be playing in England and experiencing the physical nature of the Championship.

His first test will come against newly-promoted Bolton on August 6.

In the latest Leeds transfer news, Andy Couzens believes this former player should return to the club.
