LEEDS UNITED have completed the signing of Motherwell forward Lee Erwin, who becomes their second summer capture in the space of two days.meca

Erwin, 21, has agreed a three-year-deal at Leeds, with his existing contract at Fir Park due to expire at the end of this month.

Motherwell were keen to keep the young striker and offered him fresh terms, but he has been enticed by the challenge south of the border at Leeds, who yesterday signed young goalkeeper Charlie Horton on a two-year deal from Cardiff City.

The Steelmen are entitled to a development fee for the 6ft 2in Belshill-born forward, whose final game for Motherwell ended in controversy when he involved in a heated fracas with Rangers rival Bilel Mohsni in a tempestuous SPL play-off game with the Glasgow giants on May 31.

That fee is still to be agreed.
