Leeds United new boy Luke Ayling has told supporters that they will see him on Saturday when Birmingham City visit Elland Road.

The 24-year-old left Bristol City and signed a three-year deal with Leeds to become Garry Monk's eighth signing of a very decent summer on the transfer front.

The full-back cost the Whites £750,000 (reported The Mail) and fans may get a glimpse of their latest recruit for the club's first home game of the season this weekend.

Ayling follows Marcus Antonsson, Hadi Sacko, Kyle Bartley, Matt Grimes, Kemar Roofe, Rob Green and Pablo Hernandez to Leeds this summer.

And he joins a club on the high of picking up their first win of the season after Monk's side edged out Fleetwood Town on penalties to reach the second round of the League Cup last night.

The visit of Birmingham represents a chance for Leeds to open their account in the Championship, after losing their curtain raiser 3-0 at QPR on Sunday.
