New Leeds United signing Yosuke Ideguchi has been loaned out to Spanish side Cultural Leonesa and he got started in Spain yesterday.

Ideguchi took part in his first training session and was presented to the media with plenty of fanfare, with the Spanish second division side making the most of having the Japanese international signed up.

The midfielder is on loan at Leonesa until the end of the season, when he will take part in the World Cup and join up with Leeds for 2018/19.

Leeds' decision to loan out Ideguchi split opinion, as he ended up being granted a work permit by the FA.

Some fans were critical of the decision, describing it as 'baffling', while others felt it could be an astute learning curve for a player who has never played in Europe before.

Ideguchi has not played any club matches since October as the Japanese league season ended, and he can start building his fitness up in Spain.

Leonesa also uploaded videos of Ideguchi's arrival, showing a fanfare they did not come close to when Ouasim Bouy joined on loan in August.
