Leeds United have added another player to their squad as they look to improve on their current league position.

Leeds United made it three January signings by announcing a deal for Catania striker Edgar Cani until the end of the season earlier today.

The 25-year-old was pictured in a Leeds top outside the club’s academy and it is now up to the player to help fire his new club up the Championship table.

Neil Redfearn’s men have impressed in recent weeks, going on a four-match undefeated streak and winning their last two encounters, against Bournemouth and Huddersfield.

The latter result came after a last-gasp goal from substitute Billy Sharp and it will be interesting to see how Cani’s arrival affects the current Leeds front-man.

With Souleymane Doukara, Mirco Antenucci and Steve Morison also at the club, Leeds’ new number 10 is going to push some players further down the pecking order.

Cani has scored 37 goals in his club career to date, and he has netted just three times in 15 Serie B appearances this season. But the jury is out on a player who could yet prove to be a canny addition to Leeds’ blossoming side.
