Leeds United new boy Matt Grimes has expressed his delight at signing a new deal at Elland Road.

Grimes joined Leeds on a season-long loan from Swansea City earlier today, becoming Garry Monk’s fifth signing of the summer.

Grimes is expected to have an important role to play for the Whites next season, and the youngster is looking forward to meeting up with his new teammates.

Grimes’ first-team experience so far has largely come in to lower leagues with Exeter City.

The 19-year-old’s performances in League Two convinced Swansea that he would be a good addition, and Monk was the manager who brought the midfielder to the Liberty Stadium.

Grimes has only made a handful of senior appearances since signing for Swansea, but should receive regular action at Leeds.

Grimes is the second player Monk has signed for Leeds from Swansea, following the arrival of Kyle Bartley - who has also joined on loan until the end of the campaign.

Leeds are also believed to be closing on a deal for Oxford United striker Kemar Roofe (Yorkshire Evening Post).
