New Leeds signing Edgar Cani talks up his strengths, and Redfearn encounter

New Leeds signing Edgar Cani has outlined the areas he feels are his strengths.

Leeds United secured the signing of striker Edgar Cani on deadline day, bringing in the Albanian international on loan.

The 25-year-old will hope to help the Championship side build on their run of going four games unbeaten.

He leaves Serie B side Catania, and trained with the first team squad on Monday. Speaking to Leeds' official club website, he discussed his strengths which he will be able to bring to the team.

Cani said: "I’m a good header and I like to move in the forward areas. I like to keep the ball and to let the team go forward. I also like to play with my head." 

He is not a prolific goalscorer, but neither is Steve Morison who has been leading the line at Leeds lately.

The new boy fits into the same style of play, and hints at a physical approach being laid out for Neil Redfearn. With imposing duo Granddi Ngoyi and Sol Bamba brought in too from Palermo on loan, Leeds are a side who won't be able to be bullied off the pitch.

Cani said he had positive first impressions of meeting his new head coach: ""He’s been very good. We spoke together before training and we have a good relationship."
