Former Leeds United favourite Rodolph Austin finally given all clear to play for Brondby

The Jamaican has finally ratified his deal with the Danish giants.

This summer saw Leeds United part company with fan favourite Rodolph Austin. The Jamaican international captain was told he was no longer needed at the club and to find work elsewhere.

After a long summer, in which he represented his nation in both the Copa America and CONCACAF Gold Cup, the Jamaican was hoping to secure a move to another English team. Unfortunately that was not set to be the case. He was rejected a Work Permit for the UK by the home office and was therefore informed to look elsewhere.

That he did. Austin, who has previously played in Scandinavia, agreed earlier this week to join Danish giants Brondby. The midfielder agreed terms with the club and the deal was announced on the official website.

However, he is yet to meet up with his new club. Austin once again ran into difficulty regarding his work permit and visa issues, leaving the deal in doubt for the past week.

However Leeds fans will be pleased to know that their former player will be allowed to make his move after all.

As reported by BT in Denmark Austin has now been given the relevant paperwork and he will join in training with his new team from today.

Leeds fans will no doubt be wishing him all the best in his new venture.
