Snodgrass completes Leeds switch

Leeds United have completed the signing of striker Robert Snodgrass from Livingston for an undisclosed fee.

The 20-year-old, who has signed a three-year deal at Elland Road, told the club's official website: "This move is a dream come true.

"There were a few other clubs from the south that were interested, but this is a club of big stature.

"Over the years, a lot of Scots have done well here and I want to try and get to the next level now."

Snodgrass scored 10 goals for the Scottish First Division side last season and had signing talks with Leyton Orient and Dundee as well as attracting interest from a number of other clubs after rejecting the offer of a new contract from Livingston.


The Scotland Under-20 international, who was offered a trial by Barcelona before a loan spell with Stirling Albion, will join up with the squad for the remaining two weeks of pre-season training.

"There's a couple of weeks before the season starts," he said. "I'm looking forward to getting started and getting sharp."

Snodgrass becomes the club's fourth summer signing, with manager Gary McAllister still showing interest in the Argentine Luciano Becchio and Canadian under-21 international Marcus Haber.
