Leeds striker completes transfer move to Sweden

Leeds United striker Marcus Antonsson has completed a move to Swedish side Malmo for an undisclosed fee.

The 27-year-old joined Leeds in 2016 from Kalmar and went on to make 21 appearances for the Whites, finding the net three times.

However, with first-team chances limited at Elland Road, the Swedish-born striker was dispatched to Sky Bet League One side Blackburn Rovers – with whom he helped win promotion.

During his time at Ewood Park, Antonsson scored seven goals from twenty-two appearances.

Having finally completed his medical at the Swedish club, Antonsson will join the Malmo squad ahead of their match against Örebro SK.

Speaking after completing their latest signing, Sports Director Daniel Andersson said to the Club Website: “Even when he played in Kalmar, he proved he is a very good football player.

“He is goal-intensive, running and a good-team player who works hard for the team. In addition, in two seasons in England he has become mentally stronger.

“He will be a supplement for us.”

Meanwhile, Antonsson admitted that there was no hesitation in making the return to Sweden and that he is keen to get going as soon as possible.

“It feels good to come to a club like Malmö FF. There are few things done and when MFF came into the picture, it was an easy decision.” he said to the Club Website.

“I’m a central striker who loves to run in behind the back line. I have a good season behind me and come here with great confidence. Now I’m looking forward to the challenges waiting and playing for all MFF supporters.
