The former Kalmar attacker could be an inspired signing for the Championship outfit, after joining on a three-year deal.
Leeds United fans have been reacting on Twitter after the Whites made their first summer signing and first transfer under Garry Monk by bringing Swedish striker Marcus Antonsson to the club from Kalmar.
The 25-year-old has exploded into form in the Allsvenskan over the last 18 months for the Red Brothers, and departs his home country as the season's current top scorer, having netted 10 goals in 12 games since the campaign began in April.
Chris Wood celebrates after scoring for Leeds from the penalty spot
His move to Elland Road will see fresh blood added to a strike force that was over reliant on Chris Wood and Mirco Antenucci last season. With the Italian being released at the end of the season, Antonsson has been chosen as the man to to fire Leeds up the Championship alongside the New Zealand international.
There has in general been a positive reaction to the arrival of the Swede, who has joined Leeds on a three-year contract. He worked under assistant manager Pep Clotet while the pair were both at Halmstads, and certainly moves to Yorkshire as a player in the form of his life.
Below are a selection of comments from Twitter, with many Leeds supporters looking forward to the prospect of a new look strike pairing of Antonsson and Wood:
Delighted with the signing of Antonsson. Has proven to be a quality player here in Sweden. Could make for a great partnership with Wood.— Fredrik Carlsson (@lussfredrik) June 28, 2016
Seems an intelligent and hard-working player as well as a sharp finisher which is encouraging: https://t.co/tl7Zj47Agk— Ascending Penguin (@AscendinPenguin) June 29, 2016
