New Leeds midfielder delighted to join the club.

New Leeds United signing Granddi Ngoyi has sent fans a message conveying his delight to join the club.

Ngoyi used his Twitter account to interact with supporters after his move from Italian Serie A side Palermo was confirmed by the club on Monday.

The Frenchman had played in five matches for his parent club this season, but every one was as a substitute, and joins defender Sol Bamba in making the switch to Leeds this January.

A former PSG trainee, Ngoyi is a central midfielder who will add real presence to the team, and lift some of the burden on excellent teenagers Lewis Cook and Alex Mowatt to perform.

Ngoyi is already thinking positively despite his lack of match practice, telling the club website he aims to show fans what he can do as soon as the fixture with Huddersfield this weekend.

Along with Bamba, he has been signed on loan, with a transfer embargo presently preventing the club from adding any players on a permanent basis this month. Italian website Tuttomercatoweb reported over the weekend that if Leeds want to sign Ngoyi in the summer it will cost them two million Euros.

Here is a look at how fans reacted to his signing via Twitter...
