Casper Sloth has explained on AaB Fodbold’s official website why he decided to leave Leeds United in the summer transfer window.

The midfielder has left Leeds to join Danish club AaB, as announced on the Championship club’s official website.

The 24-year-old has signed a three-year contract with AaB, as announced on the Danish Superliga outfit’s official website.

Sloth has explained his decision to switch from Leeds to AaB.

“I have long been aware of AaB's interest, and last week a direct conversation with (sporting director)Allan Gaarde seriously convinced me that AaB and I will be a good match,” the 24-year-old told AaB’s official website.

Sloth joined Leeds from Aarhus in the summer of 2014 on a three-year contract.

The midfielder failed to do much of note in his two seasons at Leeds, making just 14 appearances in all competitions.

During the 2014-15 season, the Denmark international midfielder created five chances in 13 Championship appearances for Leeds.

The 24-year-old failed to play a single match in the league for the West Yorkshire outfit last season.

The midfielder will now hope to kickstart his career at AaB and get back to the level which saw him earn the move to Leeds in the first place.

Meanwhile, Leeds are preparing for the 2016-17 Championship campaign and have already started pre-season training.
