Ex-Barca striker ready for debut

Leeds United

Argentinean striker Luciano Becchio could make his Leeds United debut in Wednesday's friendly against Shelbourne after getting international clearance.

The 24-year-old has joined the League One club on trial and is training with the squad in Ireland.

Becchio began his career at Boca Juniors before spells with Barcelona and Real Mallorca in Spain.

He spent last season with Spanish second division side Merida, scoring 28 goals in 50 appearances.

Leeds are expected to give Becchio another run-out against Barnet on Saturday, before making a decision about his long-term future.
