According to Finnish newspaper MTV, Leeds will confirm the signing of centre-back Aapo Halme in the next few days. The 6’3, 19-year-old defender plays for HJK Helsinki.
Obviously, there isn’t too much to say about Halme given his lack of appearances and his age. However it does fit the bill of what Leeds were said to be looking for in January, a young backup centre-back. He is also a key member of the Finland U21s. Halme was part of the title winning team in Finland last year, so he knows what it’s like to win.
