Gradel seals dream switch

Max Gradel cannot believe he is a Leeds United player after making his loan switch from Leicester City to Elland Road permanent. The 22-year-old winger has penned a two-and-a-half year contract with Leeds after impressing boss Simon Grayson during his three-month loan stay at the club, during which time he started three matches and made 13 more appearances from the substitutes bench. Gradel told United's official website: "It's a dream come to true. I'm really excited to join a big club like this. "I really can't believe I'm a Leeds player now. I just want to pull on the shirt again and help Leeds get where the club should be. "I'm thankful to the club and the manager for believing in me and for wanting me to come. The manager has done everything he can to get me here."
