Round-Up: Malmo forward seals move to Leeds United

ROUND-UP: Leeds United have signed Pawel Cibicki from Malmo on a four-year contract, whilst Fulham remain interested in signing Dwight Gayle.

Leeds have made a promising start to their Championship campaign as they look to launch a promotion bid, but they suffered a setback when star striker Chris Wood left for Burnley last week.

Thomas Christiansen has been able to bring in a new face, though, having concluded the capture of Sweden U21 forward Cibicki, who has joined from Malmo after agreeing a four-year contract.

The 23-year-old can play in a wide position or as a central striker and has scored five goals in 20 appearances this season, and becomes the 14th new arrival at Elland Road this summer.

Fulham remain interested in bolstering their own promotion charge by signing Newcastle United striker Gayle, but may have to pay as much as £18million to land the former Crystal Palace player.

Hull City are in talks with Leicester City about the possibility of loaning Ahmed Musa for the rest of the season; Tigers boss Leonid Slutsky knows the player well from their time together at CSKA Moscow.

It has been a busy couple of days for Birmingham City, who have sold Ryan Shotton to Middlesbrough, signed Harlee Dean from Brentford, and are also closing on the Bees’ playmaker Jota.

Sheffield United have agreed a deal to take Domingos Quina from Premier League side West Ham United, with the midfielder expected to join the Blades on loan for the rest of the season.
