Leeds United striker Marcus Antonsson has explained to the club’s official website what the fans can expect from him.

The 25-year-old striker has joined Leeds from Swedish outfit Kalmar FF, as announced on the club’s official website.

The Swede has put pen to paper on a three-year deal at the Whites, although the transfer fee that the West Yorkshire outfit have had to pay for his services has not been disclosed.

“First of all, I like to score goals,” the 25-year-old told Leeds’s official website when asked what the club’s supporters can expect to see from him.

“I’m fast inside the box and my big strength is my timing in the box. I always try to work very hard for the team - I run a lot of metres – but scoring goals is my main thing.”

Antonsson arrives at Elland Road with a strong reputation, having established himself as one of the best strikers in the Swedish top flight.

The 25-year-old is the Allsvenskan’s top scorer this season after finding the net 10 times from his opening 12 matches.

During his five years at Halmstads, Antonsson scored 11 times in 71 league matches, before making the switch to Kalmar last year.

Leeds have signed a talented and promising striker in Antonsson, and fans should be pleased with this piece of business the Championship club have done in the summer transfer window.
