Former Leeds United star Ramon Nunez joins Fort Lauderdale Strikers

The Honduran international is back playing in the United States.

A former Leeds United star has found himself a new club this week.

Ramon Nunez joined Leeds in the summer of 2010 in what was a surprise switch. The Honduran impressed Simon Grayson whilst on trial at the club, scoring in his first game against Bradford Park Avenue.

He spent two-and-a-half years with Leeds but his time at the club saw him mainly on the bench or injured, after suffering a serious knee problem. He also spent time on loan at Scunthorpe United.

He did however have his moments at Leeds. He scored two doubles in the League Cup and scored five goals overall in his time at the club.

After being released in January 2013 he went on to play in America with FC Dallas and Costa Rica with Aljauelense – failing to find form at either club.

But a return to Honduras helped him in 2014 and he showed good form with Real Espana in the past two seasons and has now returned to the USA.

The former Leeds United star has joined NASL side Fort Lauderdale Strikers. He will wear the number nine shirt in Florida and will play with former Manchester United midfielder Kleberson.

Leeds fans will no doubt wish him all the best in his new adventure.
