LEEDS UNITED have completed the signing of teenage playmaker Zan Benedicic on a season-long loan deal from AC Milan - who becomes their sixth pre-season signing.

The 18-year-old, yet to make a senior appearance for Milan, but an integral part of their under-19 line-up, has represented Slovenia at under-21 level and is highly regarded by the Rossoneri.

His signing follows on from the captures of Marco Silvestri, Stuart Taylor, Gaetano Berardi, Tommaso Bianchi and Souleymane Doukara, with United in the hunt for further acquisitions before the first game of the season at Millwall on Saturday.

United remain in advanced talks to sign Juventus defedner Frederik Sorensen, having targetted a centre-back to help compensate for the recent decision to allow Tom Lees to join Sheffield Wednesday.
