Thumbs up if you love Leeds United

It seems Ken Bates has been watching too much of ‘Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?’ and is now holding the fans in suspense at every available opportunity.

Only two weeks ago, Ken gave the Leeds United faithful food for thought as he hinted at a third signing being imminent, and today he was at it again as he revealed on Radio Bates that a new addition would be confirmed shortly.

Unlike Ken’s previous suspense thriller, when Paul Connolly arrived at Elland Road days later, we didn’t have to wait long this time and the club have now confirmed the signing of Federico Bessone.

The Argentinian is 26 years old, and after starting his career in the Barcelona C team, he then moved to Espanyol’s B team, before joining English side, Swansea City where he has spent the last two seasons.

Other than his time at Swansea, the Argentinian is a bit of an unknown entity, but he will take over our troublesome left-back position which Andy Hughes occupied for much of last season. Some fans were calling for an extended run to be given to youngster, Aidy White, but with the more experienced Bessone now on-board, it looks like young Aidy will have to work hard for an opportunity.

Trivia: Federico Bessone once played alongside Argentinian superstar, Lionel Messi in the Barcelona C team. He’ll now join another Argentinian wonder, who goes by the name of Luciano Becchio. (A like-for-like comparison, I’m sure you’ll agree?)
