Leeds United sign SC Freiburg player Robin Koch

Leeds United have completed the signing of SC Freiburg defender Robin Koch on a four-year deal, making it their second signing in one day, as per Sky Sports

The 24-year-old had sparked increasing interest from the Peacocks, with the West Yorkshire club failing to bring Ben White from Brighton. 

Marcelo Bielsa’s side have already completed the signing of Rodrigo Moreno from Valencia, spending a hefty £27 million on the forward for strengthening their attacking ranks ahead of the upcoming Premier League season.

Rodrigo netted 59 goals in 220 matches for the Bats following his arrival at Mestalla Stadium in 2014, initially on loan which was later made permanent. 

Koch had said his goodbyes to the supporters on social media and the Whites later confirmed that they have added a new centre-back on their official Twitter account

The talented defender started his senior career at SV Eintracht Trier before he joined his hometown club 1. FC Kaiserslautern where his performances in 2. Bundesliga attracted the attention of Freiburg who then signed him in August 2017. 

He clocked up 87 appearances in all competitions during his time at the German club, with five goals to his name too. 

He was impressive for Christian Streich’s side last campaign, playing 32 league matches and helping them secure the eighth position at the table. 

The 24-year-old has also represented his country at youth international level, earning five caps for Germany’s Under-21s.   

And last October he made his senior debut for Germany in a friendly match against Argentina, and later he won his second cap against Belarus.
