Leeds United have sold Matt Smith to Fulham in a deal completed minutes before transfer deadline.

The 25-year-old forward put pen-to-paper on a three-year deal with FIFA’s summer window about to shut at 11pm.

Fulham are understood to have paid in excess of £750,000 to secure Smith’s signature just two weeks after the striker signed a new three-year contract at Elland Road.

Smith committed his future to Leeds on the back of an unsuccessful bid for him from Millwall but Leeds have signed a number of new strikers and Smith started only one league game this season.

The transfer to London reunites Smith with ex-Leeds captain Ross McCormack who joined Fulham in a £10.75m deal in July.

Smith joined Leeds on a free transfer from Oldham Athletic last summer and scored 13 goals in his one and only campaign at Elland Road.
